ROCK HILL, SC- A runs batted in double from TJ Olesczuk in the eighth wasn’t enough to push the Eagles past Wofford as they fell to the Terriers 2-1 on Wednesday night at the Winthrop Ballpark.

The loss was the seventh in a row for the Eagles who fall to 6-10 on the year while the Terriers improve to 10-7.

Left handed pitcher Matt Crohan got his first collegiate loss, giving up two runs on four hits. Wofford’s Jesse Morris pitched 6.2 innings, earning the win, while giving up just four hits and improving his record to 4-1 this season.

Wofford opened the scoring in the second inning when Demetrius Jennings came home from third off a wild pitch from Crohan. The terriers scored again in the third as Seth Neely doubled to right center and advanced on the throw, which allowed Josh Hyman to score.

Winthrop rallied in the eighth as TJ Olesczuk hit an RBI double to bring home Leighton Daniels but RHP Will Stillman managed to get the save.

The Eagles kick off their 2014 Big South campaign this weekend against Gardner- Webb.
