#8/#9 Southern Maine Downs #23/#25 Wheaton 12-3

GORHAM, Maine -- Junior Jake Glauser (Goffstown, N.H.) and rookie Paul McDonough (Wells, Maine) combined for six hits and six RBI as the University of Southern Maine Huskies defeated the Wheaton College Lyons, 12-3, in a non-conference baseball game between nationally-ranked teams Sunday at the USM Baseball Stadium.

The win was the fifth straight for the Huskies since losing a week ago to the Lyons in Norton, Mass. The Huskies are now 19-6 on the season. The Lyons, coming off a three-game sweep against Emerson College and winners in 14 of their last 15 games, slip to 22-8-1.

Glauser and McDonough each had a double and two singles, scored twice and knocked in three as the Huskies unleashed a 14-hit attack against three Lyons hurlers. Senior Chris Bernard (Scarborough, Maine) had two doubles and drove in two, and sophomore Nick DiBiase (Portland, Maine/Deering) had two hits and scored three runs.

Sophomore Dan Kinnon (Londonderry, N.H.), the second of five USM pitchers used in the game, picked up his first win of the campaign hurling 2.2 scoreless innings. Kinnon allowed two hits and one walk while striking out three.

Junior Apolinar De La Cruz (Providence, R.I./Classical) led the Lyons going 2 for 2 with a home run and two RBI. Sophomore Matt Lavanchy (Walpole, Mass.) and junior Mike Beneduce (North Kingstown, R.I./Moses Brown School) had two hits apiece. The Lyons 3-4-5 hitters combined for six of the Lyons’ seven hits in the game.

Senior right-hander Alec Palioca (Wrentham, Mass./King Philip Regional) started on the hill and took the loss. Palioca allowed eight runs (three earned) on nine hits and two walks while fanning four. Palioca and his pitching mates gave up only three earned runs in the game as the Lyons committed four errors in the field.

USM grabbed a 4-0 lead against Palioca in the second inning. Glauser brought in the first run with a double, and McDonough followed with a two-run double. McDonough scored the fourth run of the frame on a single by senior John Carey (South Portland, Maine).

The Lyons got one run back in the third on a sacrifice fly from De La Cruz that brought home junior Zach Bombard (Belchertown, Mass.). Bombard walked to lead off the inning and moved to second on Lavanchy’s one-out single. Both runners moved up on a wild pitch before De La Cruz lifted a fly ball to left field.

The Huskies put the game away with eight runs in the sixth inning. Three Lyons errors led to all eight runs being unearned to the team. McDonough had an RBI single to bring home the first run, and Glauser chased home the final two with a single. In between, Bernard had a two-run double.

De La Cruz homered leading off the eighth, and Beneduce scored the final run of the game on a groundout from junior Zach Horton (North Attleboro, Mass.) later in the inning.

Southern Maine will travel tomorrow to face the University of Massachusetts Boston in a Little East Conference game. The game was scheduled for Tuesday, but moved to Monday due to the weather forecast. Wheaton will host Coast Guard in a NEWMAC game on Tuesday (3:30 p.m.).

#6/#7 Southern Maine Downs Endicott 6-5 for 7th Straight Win

GORHAM, Maine -- Rookie Paul McDonough (Wells, Maine) went 3 for 4 with a run scored and three RBI as the #6/#7-ranked University of Southern Maine Huskies defeated the Endicott College Gulls 6-5 in a non-conference baseball game Thursday afternoon at the USM Baseball Stadium.

The win was the seventh straight for the Huskies who are now 21-6 on the season. The Gulls, winners in their previous two outings, dropped to 18-8. The two teams, which met in last year’s NCAA Regional final, split their home-and-home regular season series this spring.

McDonough had three singles and drove in what proved to be the winning run with a fielder’s choice in the sixth inning. Seniors John Carey (South Portland, Maine) and Troy Thibodeau (Danvers, Mass./New Hampton) had two hits apiece. Thibodeau scored three times and had the Huskies only extra-base hit, a double, in the fourth inning.

Sophomore left-hander Dan Kinnon (Londonderry, N.H.) picked up his second win of the season working 2.2 innings in relief. Kinnon allowed one run on three hits and one walk while striking out one. Junior Andrew Richards (South Portland, Maine) came on for Kinnon in the seventh inning to work the final three innings to earn his fourth save of the season.

Senior Tad Gold (Martha’s Vineyard, Mass.) led the Gulls’ nine-hit attack with two doubles and a single and scored twice. Sophomore Matt Paola (Middlebury, Conn./Pomperaug) was the only other repeat hitter for the Gulls with a double and a single.

Sophomore Davarn Nova (Wareham, Mass./Coyle Cassidy) started on the hill for the Gulls and took the loss. Nova worked 3.1 innings giving up five runs (three earned) on 10 hits. He did not walk a batter and struck out one. Rookie Eric Nagle (Manchester, Conn.) pitched very effectively in relief giving up one run on one hit and one walk while fanning one.

Endicott took a 4-3 lead in the top half of the fourth inning as sophomore Steve Morganelli (Milford, Mass.) walked, moved to second on Paolo’s one-out single, and eventually scored on the second USM error of the inning on Gold’s groundball.

The Huskies came right back with two runs in their half of the frame. Junior Jake Glauser (Goffstown, N.H.) reached on an infield error and Thibodeau followed with his double to put runners at second and third with no outs. After an infield popout, McDonough drove in Glauser with an infield single. Thibodeau would score on a sacrifice fly by Carey. Both runs were unearned.

USM added what looked like an insurance run in the sixth inning as Thibodeau walked, moved to second on a wild pitch, advanced to third on an infield single by sophomore Nick DiBiase (Portland, Maine/Deering) and scored on McDonough’s fielder’s choice.

Gold sparked a one-run rally in the seventh with a leadoff double. Senior Brett Holmgren (Middleboro, Mass.) singled to move Gold to third and end Kinnon’s day. Richards came on to get a popout before sophomore Corbin Hyde (Lewiston, Maine) singled through the right side to drive in Gold. Richards escaped further damage getting a double play to end the threat.

Southern Maine is back in action tomorrow afternoon (3:30 p.m.) with a rescheduled home game against Bowdoin College. Endicott will host Wentworth tomorrow (4:00 p.m.) for a Commonwealth Coast Conference doubleheader.

#6/#7 Southern Maine Wins 8th Straight Downing Bowdoin 5-3

GORHAM, Maine -- Senior Troy Thibodeau (Danvers, Mass./New Hampton) and sophomore Sam Dexter (Oakland, Maine/Messalonskee) combined for six hits, three runs scored and three RBI as the #6/#7-ranked University of Southern Maine Huskies won their eighth straight game Friday afternoon defeating the visiting Bowdoin College Polar Bears 5-3 in a non-conference game at the USM Baseball Stadium.

The Huskies improved to 22-6 overall. The Polar Bears dropped their third straight game falling to 13-10-1 overall. The two teams will meet again at Bowdoin on April 29.

Thibodeau was 3 for 4 with a home run (first of the season), two runs scored and one RBI. Dexter extended his hitting streak to 17 games by going 3 for 5 with a run scored and two RBI. Senior Matt Verrier (Norway, Maine/Oxford Hills) had a pair of hits as USM reached four Bowdoin hurlers for 11 hits.

Senior left-hander Logan Carman (Exeter, N.H.) worked the first five innings on the hill for USM and did not figure in the decision. Junior right-hander Alex Tobey (South Berwick, Maine/Berwick Academy) got his second win hurling three hitless innings in relief. Sophomore Ryan Browner (Georgetown, Mass.) pitched the ninth inning to record his first save of the season.

Junior Aaron Rosen (Morganville, N.J./Marlboro) was the lone Bowdoin hitter with two hits. Rosen had a first-inning single and a double in the fourth. He also had two RBI. Senior Christian Martin (Lake Bluff, Ill.), the second of four Bowdoin pitchers, was saddled with the tough-luck loss after working 1/3 of an inning. Junior starter Henry Van Zant (Westport, Conn./Greens Farms Academy) worked five innings giving up three runs (two earned) on six hits and two walks while striking out six.

USM took a 1-0 lead with an unearned run in the first inning. Senior John Carey (South Portland, Maine) reached on a two-base infield throwing error and advanced to third on a wild pitch. Dexter grounded out to bring Carey home.

The Polar Bears scored an unearned run in the second to tie the game at 1-1. After Carman got the first two outs, sophomore Chris Nadeau (Norfolk, Mass./St. Sebastian’s) walked and advanced to second on a single by rookie Sean Mullaney (Leominster, Mass./Lawrence Academy). Nadeau would score when Rosen’s ground ball was misplayed for an error.

In the third inning, Dexter singled and scored on senior Chris Bernard’s (Scarborough, Maine) 16th double of the season. Bowdoin came right back in the fourth inning to tie the game as Nadeau again walked with two outs and scored on Rosen’s double.

Thibodeau gave USM its third lead of the day lashing a line drive home run down the left-field line leading off the home half of the fourth.

Tobey came on for Carman in the sixth and the first batter he faced, Mullaney, reached on a two-base infield error. Mullaney moved to third on a passed ball and scored on Rosen’s sacrifice fly. After Mullaney reached on the error, Tobey and Browner combined to set down 12 straight Polar Bear hitters.

The Huskies took the lead for good scoring twice in the bottom of the sixth. Carey’s ground out drove in Thibodeau who led off the inning with a single. Dexter drove in the second run with a single. Both runs were charged to Martin who left the game after being struck on the hand by a line drive off the bat of USM rookie Paul McDonough (Wells, Maine).

Southern Maine hosts Plymouth State University tomorrow (12:00 p.m.) for a Little East Conference twinbill. Bowdoin is at home on Saturday (12:00 p.m.) hosting Williams College in a NESCAC doubleheader.

Southern Maine Holds Off UMass Boston 7-4

GORHAM, Maine -- Senior John Carey (South Portland, Maine) went 4 for 4 with a run scored and two RBI as the #5/#6 University of Southern Maine Huskies built an early 6-0 lead and held off the visiting University of Massachusetts Beacons for a 7-4 victory in Little East Conference baseball action Tuesday afternoon at the USM Baseball Stadium.

The win improved the Huskies overall mark to 24-7. The Huskies remain atop the LEC standings with a 9-1 record. The Beacons lost their third straight to slip to 13-16 overall and 4-6 in LEC play.

Led by Carey, the Huskies knocked out 13 hits against four Beacon hurlers. Junior Jake Glauser (Goffstown, N.H.) and sophomore Nick DiBiase (Portland, Maine/Deering) had a pair hits.

Rookie right-hander Zack Bean (Westbrook, Maine) improved his record to 3-0 on the season with help from four relievers. Bean worked 5.1 innings allowing two unearned runs on four hits and two walks while striking out one.

Rookie Daniel Mantoni (Northbridge, Mass./Hopedale Jr.-Sr.) and senior Jose Pena (Boston, Mass./O’Bryant) had two hits apiece for the Beacons. Pena drove in three runs with two doubles and Mantoni had the other RBI.

Senior Daniel Heefner (Tracy, Calif.) started on the mound for the Beacons and took the loss. Heefner pitched the first three innings allowing three runs, only one earned, on six hits and one walk while fanning two.

USM built their early lead scoring single runs in each of the first three innings against Heefner before tacking up three runs on the fourth inning off senior reliever Tom Cole (Mattapoisett, Mass.). Senior Forrest Chadwick (Gardiner, Maine) drove in rookie Paul McDonough (Wells, Maine) in the first with a sacrifice fly. Carey drove in the run in the second inning with a single, and senior Matt Verrrier’s (Norway, Maine/Oxford Hills) double brought home Chadwick in the third.

In the fourth, the Huskies loaded the bases with two outs before senior Chris Bernard (Scarborough, Maine) singled to plate one run. Verrier was hit by a pitch to force home the second marker, and Glauser singled home Chadwick with the third run.

The Beacons struck for a pair of unearned runs against Bean in the fifth inning. Mantoni drove in senior Jamil Moquete (Boston, Mass./Madison Park Tech Voke), who had reached on an infield error, with a single, and scored when Pena doubled to left field. Bean got out of the inning getting the next batter to fly out.

Carey singled home DiBiase in the Huskies’ half of the fifth to push the lead up to 7-2.

Neither team scored over the next three innings. The Beacons made things interesting in the ninth scoring a pair of runs on Pena’s second double. USM junior reliever Andrew Richards (South Portland, Maine) prevented any further damage getting a couple of groundouts to end the game.

Five-Run 8th Inning Gives Babson 6-4 Win over #5/#6 Southern Maine

GORHAM, Maine -- The Babson College Beavers scored five runs in the eighth inning to overcome a two-run deficit and defeated the #5/#6-ranked University of Southern Maine Huskies, 6-4, in a non-conference baseball game Wednesday afternoon at the USM Baseball Stadium.

The win was the sixth straight for the visiting Beavers and improved their record to 18-13 overall. The Huskies, winners in 10 of their previous 11 games, dropped to 24-8 overall.

Three Babson hurlers held the USM bats to six hits in the game. Sophomore Hunter Silva (Bourne, Mass.) started and gave up two runs on one hit and two walks while striking out one. He also hit two batters. Rookie John Russolillo (Georgetown, Mass./Governors Academy), who picked up the win, worked two innings giving up a run on two hits. Senior Kyle Lyon (Flemington, N.J./Delaware Valley Regional) picked up his first save pitching the final two innings.

Rookie Jack Halpin (Glastonbury, Conn.) had a double and two singles to lead the Beavers’ 11-hit attack. Junior Sean MacPhee (Framingham Mass/Belmont Hill) had a double, single and two RBI. Junior Chris Warren (Medfield, Mass.) had a pair of singles.

For the Huskies, sophomore Sam Dexter (Oakland, Maine/Messalonskee) and senior Matt Verrier (Norway, Maine/Oxford Hills) each had a double. Junior right-hander Andrew Richards (South Portland, Maine), the fifth of seven USM hurlers used in the contest, took the loss to fall to 2-1 on the season.

Down 3-1 with two innings to play, Babson sent 10 men to the plate in the eighth. Warren led off the frame with a single. After a fly out, the next four hitters grounded singles through the USM defense. Rookie Owen Shea (Northborough, Mass/St. John’s HS) brought home the first run, and MacPhee followed with a two-run single. A hit batsman loaded the bases before junior Rob Caggiano (Medford, Mass./Belmont Hill) laid down a squeeze bunt to bring in Shea. MacPhee scored the fifth run on a wild pitch.

Despite being held to one hit by Silva over the first five innings, it was the Huskies who had the early lead. In the first inning, rookie Paul McDonough (Wells, Maine) walked, stole second and scored on Dexter’s one-out double. Dexter would advance to third on a wild pitch and later scored on an errant pick-off attempt.

Babson struck for an unearned run in the sixth against USM junior starter Alex Tobey (South Berwick, Maine/Berwick Academy). Warren, who was hit by a pitch leading off the inning, scored from third on a two-out infield error. Tobey pitched well for USM allowing only the one unearned run on four hits and one walk in 5.2 innings. He struck out three.

USM restored its two-run advantage in the seventh when Verrier doubled, moved up on a sacrifice bunt and scored on a sacrifice fly by rookie Matt Bender (Walpole, Mass.).

The Huskies loaded the bases with one out in the ninth against Lyon, but were only to get one run on a fielder’s choice from sophomore Nick DiBiase (Portland, Maine/Deering).

Southern Maine travels to Keene State College on Saturday (12:00 p.m.) for a Little East Conference doubleheader. Babson opens the NEWMAC tournament tomorrow (3:30 p.m.) with a quarterfinal round home game against WPI.

Southern Maine Sweeps Keene State 13-1 (7 inn.) and 8-3

KEENE, N.H. -- The University of Southern Maine bats came alive Friday afternoon for 31 hits as the Huskies swept the Keene State College Owls in a Little East Conference baseball doubleheader at the Owl Athletic Complex, 13-1 in seven innings and 8-3.

The sweep lifts the Huskies’ record to 26-8 overall and 11-1 in conference play. The Owls fall to 8-18 overall and 2-10 in LEC action. The doubleheader was originally scheduled to be play Saturday, but was move up a day due to the poor weather forecast for the weekend.

In the opening game, sophomore Sam Dexter (Oakland, Maine/Messalonskee) went 4 for 5 with a double and home run to lead a 17-hit assault. The game was stopped after seven innings on the 10-run rule. Senior Matt Verrier (Norway, Maine/Oxford Hills) went 4 for 5 with two doubles, a home run and five RBI as the Huskies took the nightcap.

Game One

The Huskies pounded four KSC hurlers for 17 hits in the shortened game. Sophomore Nick DiBiase (Portland, Maine/Deering) had a double and two singles, and rookie Paul McDonough (Wells, Maine) and seniors John Carey (South Portland, Maine) and Troy Thibodeau (Danvers, Mass./New Hampton) each had a pair of hits.

Sophomore southpaw Tyler Leavitt (North Andover, Mass.) was the beneficiary of the offensive support earning his seventh win of the season against one loss. Leavitt went 6.1 innings allowing only the one run on two hits and three walks while fanning four. Leavitt and junior reliever Dylan Morris (Bangor, Maine) combined to limit the Owls to just three singles.

Senior right-hander Shawn Egan (East Hartford, Conn./East Catholic) went the first five innings on the mound for the Owls and took the loss. Egan allowed six runs (five earned) on eight hits and two walks. He struck out two.

Dexter started the scoring in the first inning scoring an unearned run on an infield error. Carey and Dexter combined to make it 3-0 in the third inning when they hit back-to-back homers.

USM added three in the fifth inning on a Dexter double, a sacrifice fly from senior Forrest Chadwick (Gardiner, Maine) and an RBI single by senior Chris Bernard (Scarborough, Maine).

After scoring twice more in the sixth, the Huskies brought the 10-run rule into play scoring five times in the seventh to make it 13-0. Verrier had a two-run double to ignite the outburst. McDonough and Carey also had RBI in the inning.

Keene State tallied its lone run in the bottom of the seventh on an RBI single by sophomore Vinny Parilla (Londonderry, N.H.).

Game Two

Verrier had the hot bat in the nightcap notching his second four-hit game of the season, including his fifth round tripper of the season. McDonough, Chadwick and Thibodeau had two safeties apiece.

Sophomore Joe Libby (Hooksett, N.H./Trinity), junior Matt Boulay (Stafford Springs, Conn./East Catholic), rookie Trevor Chapin (Northfield, N.H./New Hampton) and Parilla all had two hits in the nightcap as the Owls touched USM pitching for 11 hits.

Junior right-hander Andrew Richards (South Portland, Maine) picked up his third win for the Huskies going 4.2 innings in relief. Richards shut down an Owls’ rally in the fifth with a strikeout, and did not give up a run over the final four frames. He allowed only two hits and no walks while fanning four.

Sophomore Cody Dube (Windham, Maine) took the loss. Dube worked 7.1 innings allowing all eight runs (seven earned) on 11 hits and two walks. He struck out four.

The Huskies got the early jump on Dube scoring four times in their first turn at bat. Bernard delivered the first run with a sacrifice fly. Verrier followed with a two-run double, and junior Jake Glauser (Goffstown, N.H.) brought Verrier home with a single.

The Owls closed the gap to 4-3 in the fifth inning against USM sophomore starter Shyler Scates (Jefferson, Maine/Erskine Academy). Parilla and Chapin set the table with a single and double respectively. Junior Tanner Chase (York, Maine) drove in Parilla with a sacrifice fly, and Libby doubled home Chapin. Libby scored on Boulay’s single that ended Scates afternoon on the hill. Richards came on to get a strikeout for the final out of the inning.

The Huskies picked up an insurance run in the sixth on Verrier’s RBI double. Verrier hit a two-run homer his next time up in the eighth inning to make it 7-3. The Huskies added an unearned run after the Verrier homer as Glauser reached on a two-base infield error and scored on a Thibodeau single.

Up Next

The Huskies are off until Tuesday (4:00 p.m.) when they will travel to Brunswick, Maine, to face Bowdoin College. The Owls will be at Daniel Webster College on Sunday (2:00 p.m.).
