NCAA baseball: USM one win away from World Series
The Huskies advance to the regional final with an 8-4 win over Endicott.
By Mike Lowe

HARWICH, Mass. — The University of Southern Maine has long been the benchmark for New England’s Division III baseball programs. The Huskies have won two national championships and appeared in five other national tournaments. And everyone is chasing the Huskies again this year. USM used some gritty pitching from Tyler Leavitt and Andrew Richards and timely hitting to defeat Endicott College 8-4 Friday night at Whitehouse Field in the NCAA Division III Regional tournament...

NCAA Regional Tournament - Game 14

Endicott Hangs on to Down Southern Maine 7-6

Two Teams Meet Again Sunday for Regional Title

HARWICH, Mass. -- The University of Southern Maine Huskies ninth-inning rally fell one run short as Endicott College sophomore reliever Davarn Nova (Wareham, Mass./Coyle Cassidy) struck out the final two batters to save the Gulls’ 7-6 victory in Game 14 of the NCAA Division III New England Regional Tournament at Whitehouse Field Saturday evening.

The Gulls’ (34-13) win sends the teams into a one-game, winner-take-all showdown Sunday afternoon (12:00 p.m.) with a trip to the NCAA Division III World Series on the line. The Gulls defeated M.I.T., 7-3, earlier in the afternoon for the chance to face the Huskies (34-13).

Endicott picked up what appeared to be an insurance run in the top of the ninth inning, but that run proved to be the difference as USM scored twice and left the bases loaded as Nova recorded the final two outs via strikeouts. Senior Tad Gold (Martha’s Vineyard, Mass.) led off the ninth with a single and scored all the way from first on a single by senior EJ Martinez (Brooklyn, N.Y./Poly Prep) to make it 7-4.

The Huskies loaded the bases in their half of the inning against freshman Colby Morris (Newburyport, Mass.) on singles by senior Forrest Chadwick (Gardiner, Maine) and sophomore Nick DiBiase (Portland, Maine/Deering), and a walk to rookie Paul McDonough (Wells, Maine).

Senior John Carey (South Portland, Maine) greeted Nova with a single that brought home rookie Jake Welch (Londonderry, N.H.) who pinch ran for Chadwick. Nova plunked sophomore Sam Dexter (Oakland, Maine/Messalonskee) with a pitch to force in DiBiase and cut the deficit to one. Nova rebounded though to strike out the next two batters and preserve the Gulls win.

Gold and Martinez had three hits to pace the Gulls’ 16-hit attack. Junior Harry Oringer (Dartmouth, Mass./Coyle Cassidy) had a three-run homer and a single. Rookie Cam Farnham (Andover, Mass.), and sophomores Steve Morganelli (Milford, Mass.) and Cody Hall (Rutland, Mass./Wachusett Regional) all had two hits.

Morris, the third of four hurlers used by Endicott, picked up his first win of the season working 4.1 innings. Nova earned his fourth save of the season.

McDonough had a solo home run and a single for the Huskies. Chadwick, who entered the game as a pinch hitter in the fourth inning, and seniors Matt Verrier (Norway, Maine/Oxford Hills) and Troy Thibodeau (Danvers, Mass./New Hampton) each had two hits for the Huskies. Junior Jake Glauser (Goffstown, N.H.) had a two-run homer.

Rookie starter Zack Bean (Westbrook, Maine), the first of five USM hurlers, was tagged with his first loss of the season. Bean gave up four runs in 2 1/3 innings on the hill.

Glauser’s two-run homer to left field in the second inning gave USM a 2-0 lead.

Endicott responded with four runs in the third inning to take the lead. Oringer hit a three-run home run to put the first three runs on the board. Senior Brett Holmgren (Middleboro, Mass./Coyle Cassidy) followed with a double and scored on a Gold single that ended Bean’s night.

Morganelli tacked on another run in the fifth to make it 5-2 before McDonough led off the bottom half of the frame with a solo shot over the left-field fence.

USM closed to within one run (5-4) on Chadwick’s RBI single in the sixth. Morganelli restored the Gulls’ two-run lead with an RBI single in the seventh to set the stage for the ninth inning.

USM heading back to national championships
Huskies pull away late to beat Endicott 11-1.
By Mike Lowe

HARWICH, Mass. — It’s back-to-back trips to the NCAA Division III national baseball championships for the University of Southern Maine. Senior left-hander Logan Carman was brilliant for 8 2/3 innings and the injured Forrest Chadwick drove in four runs, three on an eighth-inning home run, to spark the Huskies to an 11-1 victory over Endicott College in the championship game of the NCAA Div. III New England Regional at Whitehouse Field...

usm athletics: Southern Maine Explodes Late, Downs Endicott 11-1 to Win Regional Title

Huskies Head to Wisconsin For NCAA Division III World Series

HARWICH, Mass. -- Senior left-hander Logan Carman (Newfields, N.H./Exeter) scattered five hits and allowed only one run over 8 2/3 innings as the University of Southern Maine Huskies came from behind to defeat the Endicott College Gulls, 11-1, Sunday afternoon at Whitehouse Field to win the NCAA Division III New England Regional Championship for the second straight year.

The Huskies, 35-13 overall, advance to the NCAA Division III World Series that begins Friday at Fox Cities Stadium in Appleton, Wisconsin. This will be the Huskies’ eighth trip all-time to the Division III World Series, and fourth trip to Appleton since 2000. This regional title marks the third time that Huskies have won back-to-back titles.

In a rematch of the 2013 regional championship game, Carman again proved dominant allowing only a single first-inning run. A year ago, the southpaw hurled a complete game shutout to send the Huskies on to the Division III World Series.

After allowing the first-inning run, Carman helped himself spearing a line drive to start a double play in the second inning, and got out of a bases-loaded jam in the third getting the final out on a comebacker to the mound. From there, Carman allowed only two more hits before giving way to senior Nate Veilleux (Belgrade, Maine/Messalonskee) to record the final out.

The Husky bats came alive in the latter stages of the game to pound out 15 hits and turn a 1-0 deficit into a 10-run cushion. Sophomore Sam Dexter (Oakland, Maine/Messalonskee) led the way going 4 for 5 and scoring twice. Senior Forrest Chadwick (Gardiner, Maine), back in the starting lineup after being limited to pinch-hitting duties for the first four days of the tourney due to a leg injury, was 3 for 5, including a home run, and drove in four runs. Rookie Paul McDonough (Wells, Maine) also went 3 for 5 to drive in two runs and score twice.

For the Gulls, senior Tad Gold (Martha’s Vineyard, Mass.) was the lone repeat hitter with a double and single. Gold drove in the Gulls lone run with a first-inning single. Sophomore starting pitcher JJ Branch (Milford, Mass.) held the Huskies in check over the first five innings allowing just three hits. USM finally got to Branch in the sixth inning for four straight singles that produced two runs, and knocked him from of the game during a nine-run explosion the eighth inning. The loss was just the second of the season for Branch against eight wins.

Endicott grabbed the lead as rookie Cam Farnham (Andover, Mass.) led of the game with a single, and stole second with two outs. Gold brought Farnham around with his single to left field. Gold would take second on the throw, and later stole third, but was stranded there.

Sophomore Cody Hall (Rutland, Mass./Wachusett) led off the Gulls’ third inning with a single, and Carman misplayed a sacrifice bunt by Farnham that left runners at second and third with no outs. Carman got the next two hitters on a foul out and one of his five strikeouts before hitting Gold with a pitch to load the bases. Carman escaped by getting sophomore Matt Paola (Middlebury, Conn./Pomperaug) to hit a comebacker to the mound.

Southern Maine finally solved Branch in the sixth getting four consecutive singles from Dexter, McDonough, Chadwick and senior Matt Verrier (Norway, Maine/Oxford Hills) to take the lead.

After a scoreless seventh inning, the Huskies put the game away in the eighth inning by sending 14 men to the plate en route to scoring nine times. Sophomore Nick DiBiase (Portland, Maine/Deering), Dexter and McDonough had consecutive singles off Branch to make it 3-1 before Chadwick hit his sixth home run of the season over the right field fence. Branch faced two more hitters before being lifted.

Senior right-hander Colin McLaughlin (Clinton, Mass.) recorded the first out on a fielder’s choice, but then walked junior Jake Glauser (Goffstown, N.H.) and served up an RBI single to senior Troy Thibodeau (Danvers, Mass./New Hampton) to make it 7-1. McLaughlin gave way to senior Tyler Hill (Las Vegas, Nev.) who would get touched up for RBI singles by Dexter and McDonough. USM also scored runs on a double steal and a wild pitch.

Carman was named the tournament’s most outstanding player. Chadwick (DH), Dexter (SS), Verrier (C) and junior relief pitcher Andrew Richards (South Portland, Maine) were also named to the All-Tournament team. Gold, Hall and pitcher Davarn Nova (Wareham, Mass.) represented Endicott on the team. Senior outfielder Alex Lornec of St. Joseph’s College, junior pitcher Kyle Slinger of Tufts University and junior infielder Parker Tew of M.I.T. round out the all-tournament team.

Dexter hit safely in all five tournament games batting .522 (12 for 23) with six runs scored and four RBI. Chadwick was 6 for 9 with six RBI in four games, and McDonough hit .409 (9 for 22) in his first regional.

HARWICH, Mass. — The University of Southern Maine had just lost to Endicott College 7-6 Saturday night in the NCAA Division III New England Regional when Forrest Chadwick approached Huskies Coach Ed Flaherty. “He came to me and said, ‘I’ve got to get in the lineup,’ ’’ said Flaherty.

Homegrown talent propels USM baseball – again
With yet another at-bat in the national baseball tournament in Wisconsin this week, the Huskies will be relying on a core of Maine standouts.
By Mike Lowe

GORHAM — Forrest Chadwick was playing summer baseball for the Lakeshore Chinooks in Mequon, Wisconsin, a couple of summers ago when some fans asked him where his home was. “Maine,” said Chadwick, a Gardiner resident who’s a senior outfielder for the University of Southern Maine. “Maine?” they asked, almost incredulously. “You guys even have baseball there?” Well, yes, they do. And they play it quite well. The USM baseball team is making its second consecutive trip to the NCAA Division III national baseball championships this week, and is on....

Steve Solloway: Former hockey players making a big impact for USM baseball

Forrest Chadwick, Troy Thibodeau and Sam Dexter bring their on-ice grit to the ballpark.
GORHAM — The knot of muscle in Forrest Chadwick’s upper left thigh still hadn’t relaxed when the University of Southern Maine baseball team walked onto the field for practice Tuesday afternoon. The hitch in Chadwick’s stride was subtle, but Coach Ed Flaherty noticed. His best hitter can’t run and USM plays its first game in the NCAA Division III baseball championships Friday...

Central Mainers lead USM to World Series
Messalonskee alum Sam Dexter and Gardiner’s Forrest Chadwick have powered the Huskies with some clutch performances.
By Travis Lazarczyk

GORHAM — Sam Dexter, the University of Southern Maine shortstop, thought about the effort turned in by teammate Forrest Chadwick at the New England regional last week, and shook his head. Unable to pay the field because of a quadriceps injury, Chadwick still went 6 for 9 at the plate for the Huskies, driving in six runs. Chadwick’s three-run homer in the eighth inning of the championship game all but clinched the victory over Endicott...
