Here is your Patriot League Recap for April 11th.
ANNAPOLIS, Md. – Logan Lee, Joey Henshaw and Kevin McKague combined to limit Navy to two runs over nine innings and J.T. Watkins went 3-for-4 with one run scored and one run batted in as Army registered a 5-2 win Sunday afternoon at Max Bishop Stadium to earn a split of the teams’ Patriot League twinbill.
With the win, the Black Knights secured their seventh straight series victory over the Midshipmen. Navy won the first game on Sunday by the score of 4-2, riding a three-run second inning that was fueled by a trio of Army fielding errors.
Army, which secured its seventh consecutive series "star" by virtue of its doubleheader sweep of the Mids on Saturday, has now won 13 of its last 15 games against Navy and 24 of 29 dating back to 2004. The Black Knights have also won 11 of the teams’ last 12 meetings in Annapolis.

Game 1: Lehigh 2 Lafayette 0
Game 2: Lehigh 6 Lafayette 3
BETHLEHEM, Pa. – If there were ever any doubts about Greg Angelo’s recovery from the injury that caused him to miss most of last year they were answered on Sunday, as the senior co-captain tossed a no-hitter to help Lehigh earn a series sweep of its archrival Lafayette. Behind Angelo’s strong performance the Mountain Hawks won game one 2-0 and came from behind in game two to earn a 6-3 win. Lehigh, who has now won six straight games, picks up its first series sweep over the Leopards since 2002. The Brown and White is now 14-16 (6-2) overall, and Lafayette drops to 6-21 (2-6) after the losses.
“A no-hitter is a total team effort and I just tried to go out and hit my spots,” Angelo said. “Lafayette was hitting the ball well, but we were really solid defensively. I’m really proud of the way the entire team competed. I have to give credit to my catcher Chad Warga for fighting through the pressure with me. The pressure was on his shoulders just as much as it was on mine.”
