Buffs end losing skid

from staff reports

   In halting a seven game losing streak, the Milligan College Buffaloes got a large dose of clutch hitting and solid pitching, and in the process swept a twin-bill from Berea, Ky. 6-5, and 13-2.
   Dustin Price's single drove in the lead run in the Buffs' opening win, to plate pinch runner Nathan Meade.
   Jacob McAllister pitched well for Milligan allowing three runs (all earned) in six and one-third innings of work. Chris Shockley (2-3) closed out Berea in his two-thirds innings and gained the win when Price's shot plated Meade.
   Price led the Buffs with a 2-for-3 afternoon and Ben Whittemore added a pair of base knocks in the contest.
   In the nightcap, the Buffs rapped out 18 hits against Berea pitching, led by Scott Shealy who belted his third home run of the season and went 4-for-4 at the dish.
   Shealy's sterling afternoon bumped his batting average to the .451 mark on the season, and Shealy drove in a pair of runs as well for Milligan.
   Whittemore also continued swinging a hot stick with three hits in the nightcap. Whittemore scored three runs and knocked in two.
   Josh Ramsey (2-3) picked up his second win of the season with four innings of two-hit ball.
   Milligan improved to 11-9 on the season.
