After setting the MIT record for most regular season wins last year with a 2012 record, the Engineers started off the fall season right where they left off by sweeping Wentworth Institute of Technology 133 in the first game and 74 in the second.

In the first game, pitchers Joel Morales '99 and Randy Graeb- ner '00 combined for 12 strikeouts, holding Wentworth to only three runs. The Engineers were led at the plate by Baldemar Mejia '97, who had three hits and three runs batted in and by Morales, who had a three-run homer and four runs batted in.

Eddie Rivas '97, Steve Vetere '97, Pete Gustafson '99, and David Piho '00 also joined in on the offensive attack. In the second game, pitchers Tyler Pope '99 and Jason Szuminski '00 allowed only four runs.

The Engineers were led at the plate by Chris Albrecht '00, who had two hits including a three-run triple in the bottom of the sixth to put the team ahead for good. Nate Burnham '00, Ethan Goetz '00, and Jack Gallagher '99 also contributed at the plate. Catcher Paul Collins '98 picked up the slack, catching both ends of the doubleheader while knocking out a few hits.

The Engineers are away this weekend at Babson College, where they will play a twin bill at noon tomorrow.
