WILMINGTON, North Carolina – Freshman Zarion Sharpe tossed six shutout innings and Casey Golden and Riley Zayicek both homered as UNCW blanked Delaware, 5-0, to win the weekend Colonial Athletic Association series on Sunday at Brooks Field.
The Seahawks improved to 21-22 overall and 9-6 in the conference. UD dropped to 24-17 and 10-8. UNCW jumped past the Blue Hens for third in the conference standings. The Seahawks and William & Mary are tied record-wise, but UNCW won the series earlier this season.
Sharpe, who won his fourth consecutive start, allowed just three hits and walked none while striking out three. The lefthander needed just 68 pitches to work his way through six innings.
Josh Roberson, Chris Joyner and Clark Cota finished off the game, each going an inning and combining for five strikeouts.
