By Jim Fenton BRIDGEWATER, Mass. -- The third-seeded Johnson & Wales University baseball team has secured a spot in the championship round of the NCAA Division 3 Bridgewater Regional. The Wildcats improved to 2-0 in the tournament on Sunday afternoon with a 10-0 victory over fourth-seeded Bridgewater State University at Alumni Park. Johnson & Wales will play either Bridgewater State or top-seeded Endicott College in the title round on Monday at noon.

If a second game is needed to decide the double-elimination tournament, it would be played 50 minutes after the conclusion of the opener. The victory was a school-record 30th for the Wildcats, who have won two NCAA tourney games for the first time in program history. Bridgewater State (33-12) plays an elimination game against Endicott Sunday afternoon.

The Bears opened the regional on Friday with a 4-2 win over the nationally ranked Gulls. Winning pitcher Ryan Schultz, a junior from Hebron, Conn., improved to 6-0 for the Wildcats. He worked seven shutout innings, scattering eight hits while walking only one. Johnson & Wales (30-13) scored four runs each in the fourth and fifth innings to take control against the Bears in the first meeting between the teams since 2019. The Wildcats opened a 1-0 lead in the top of the first inning as Jack Obert, a freshman from Plymouth, led the game by drawing a walk, went to third on a single to right by Trevor Juan, a sophomore from Bolton, Conn., and scored on a sacrifice fly by Miles Kelly, a senior from East Setauket, N.Y.

Thorin Sanchez-Guerra, a junior from Lindenhurst, N.Y., walked, stole a base and scored from second on an infield hit by Jack Magane, a junior from Walpole. Magane then stole second and scored on a double to left by Obert. The four-run fifth inning began when Kelly walked and Leone was hit by a pitch.
