Two Washington Wild Things players took care of the Mid-Missouri Mavericks on Saturday.

The Mavericks lost 4-0 to the Wild Things at Falconi Field in Washington, Pa. Shortstop Jon Cahill and first baseman Josh Loggins accounted for three of Washington’s four hits and each scored two runs.

The Wild Things (40-27) took an early 2-0 lead as Loggins hit a home run to right field after Mavericks starter Lenny Bays hit Cahill.

Cahill and Loggins were not finished with Bays. After Cahill’s leadoff single in the sixth, Loggins hit his second home run of the game to put Washington ahead 4-0.

Mid-Missouri (28-41) totaled eight hits, with four players recording two hits apiece. Shortstop Adam Rittenhouse, center fielder Jake Whitesides, right fielder Wes Fewell and left fielder Eric Gordon went 2-for-4.

Bays (6-7) took the loss. He pitched seven innings, gave up four runs on four hits, struck out two and walked one.

The Mavericks split Friday’s games at Kalamazoo. They won the first 7-5 and lost the second 7-2.
