Greencastle, Ind. – DePauw held a two-run lead going into the eighth inning but Webster plated three runs in the top half and took a 6-5 non-conference win on Sunday.
In the eighth Webster (24-7), who received votes in the latest NCBWA/D3Baseball.com poll, got their first two batters and into scoring position before a fielder's choice got the first run of the inning across. A two-run single up the middle from Danny Strohm scored the tying and go-ahead runs.
Charlie Patrick went 3-for-4 with two runs scored from atop the lineup. DePauw totaled seven hits and committed two errors to Webster's 11 hits and two errors.
Jake Anderson recorded the win for Webster in two innings of relief. Shane Donovan picked up the two-inning save. The Tigers managed just one hit in the final four frames.
DePauw is now 6-21 overall, and they have another non-conference home tilt Tuesday against Franklin.
