WVU Baseball Wins Randy Mazey’s Last Home Game 12-5



WVU Baseball HC Randy Mazey

WVU Baseball took the game and the series on Sunday, a fitting tribute to head coach Randy Mazey in what was almost certainly the final home game of his illustrious career.

The Mountaineers’ offense didn’t shy away from the emotional moment, putting up 12 runs so Mazey could bask in a “Country Roads” victory rendition one final time.

JJ Wetherholt continued to rake, pulling a 3-2 pitch 423 feet into the Kendrick Family Ballpark parking lot for a three-run bomb. He also drew a bases loaded walk, which Sam White followed up with a two-run single to collect his sixth and seventh RBI on the weekend.

Ben Lumsden and Skylar King joined in on the homer party, adding solo and two-run shots, respectively.

The Mountaineers’ lead climbed as high as 9-1 through the middle innings, although Kansas State’s offense struck back with a four-run sixth to keep things interesting and chase starting pitcher Tyler Switalski from the game.

Carson Estridge took over from Switalski with no outs and a runner aboard, allowing a sacrifice bunt RBI before going on to contribute three scoreless innings in relief.

Reed Chumley—who got the scoring started with a one-run double in the first—singled in another baserunner, while King’s homer reestablished a commanding lead on the way to the 12-5 victory.

WVU Baseball improves to 31-19 on the season (17-10 Big 12). They’ll be back in action at TCU on Friday, May 17, kicking off their final series of the regular season.
