A Trio of Retrievers Selected to the Cal Ripken College Baseball League All-Star Game

Baltimore, Md.—Three UMBC baseball standouts were selected to compete in the Cal Ripken College Baseball League All-Star Game, as announced by the league. Rising seniors Denis Mikush (Burke, Va./Robinson), Conrad Wozniak (Cypress, Texas/Cypress Woods/Frank Phillip) and Kevin Lachance (Clifton, Va./Centreville) were named all-stars for their stellar performances in the summer league.

This will be the third time that Mikush makes an appearance in the league all-star game, representing the South team. He was named an all-star back in 2013 and 2014. So far this summer, he has appeared in ten games, giving up just one run for an ERA of 0.90. He has a 1-0 record with two saves and 16 strikeouts in 9.1 innings pitched for the Vienna River Dogs.

Fellow South team and River Dog teammate Kevin Lachance will also appear in the game. Lachance is batting .359 in 17 games, the best on the team. He has smacked three doubles, one triple while driving in eight for the River Dogs. His 11 stolen bases are the best on the team.

Wozniak will represent the Silver Spring-Takoma T Bolts on the North squad. He is sporting the third best ERA in the entire league at 0.91. In his eight appearances this summer, Wozniak has a 3-1 record with two complete games. He has given up just four earned runs with a team-high 35 strikeouts.

The game will feature all-stars from the North and South Divisions and will be played on July 15 at Shirley Povich Field in Bethesda, Md.
