DOYLESTOWN -- Dan Jenkins tossed a complete-game two hitter as the King's College baseball team salvaged a doubleheader split with Delaware Valley College in a Freedom Conference doubleheader Monday in Quakertown.

With the split, King's stands at 6-7 overall and 2-3 in Freedom Conference play while Delaware Valley is 8-6 and 1-1.
In the second game, the Monarchs took a 1-0 lead in the first inning when J.R. Graver walked and eventually scored from second on an Aggie error.

King's would add an insurance run in the sixth when Pat McGlynn reached base on a leadoff double. Matt Unger would then drive in pinch runner Matt Fignar with  single to centerfield to push the score to 2-0.

Jenkins, meanwhile, was in full control on the hill, allowing a pair of singles in the second and fourth innings and struck out five batters while walking just one.

In the opener, King's managed eight base hits but were unable to bring a runner home. Graver and Jon Venarchick led the way with two base hits each while Unger, Matt Livoy, Matt Colgan, and Phil Moskowitz all added one base hit.

Livoy took the pitching loss, allowing four runs, two earned, in five and two-thirds innings, striking out five batters and walking four.

Mike Isgro (3-0) was the winning pitcher for Delaware Valley, striking out eight batters and walking just one hitter.

The teams will conclude their three-game series Tuesday with a 3:30 p.m. at King's Betzler Fields.
