Cabaniss has Beavers on track
The Vassalboro native and UMF leadoff hitter has had a major impact on other sports at the school.

Batting at the top of the order, Sean Cabaniss is critical to the University of Maine at Farmington baseball team’s success. Believe it or not, he’s an even better leadoff man in track and field. Cabaniss, of Vassalboro, sparks the UMF offense, He’s also sparked the school’s fledgling track and field program, too. On the diamond, he sets the tone for a lineup that has scored 75 runs and propelled the Beavers to an 8-2 record. He leads the team’s regulars with a .421 batting average, is getting on base 46 percent of the time, and has scored 11 runs and stolen four bases. The junior enjoys his role as table-setter and has devoted a lot of time to getting better at it...

Husson Takes Season Series From UMF

GAME ONE BOX SCORE GAME TWO BOX SCORE

BANGOR, Maine – After Husson (12-7, 8-0) swept a doubleheader from the University of Maine at Farmington (8-4, 2-4) a week ago, the Eagles prevented the Beavers from evening the season series with a two-game sweep on Thursday afternoon at Winkin Complex.

The Eagles rode their momentum from last week by taking the first game, 4-3.

Husson scored a run in its first two at-bats but Farmington tied the game in the bottom of the second. With the bases loaded, Chad Snowman (Dixfield, Maine) hit a sacrifice fly to right field and Jimmy Neal (Farmington, Maine) crossed the plate for the Beavers. Jimmy Parks (Springvale, Maine) slapped an RBI single through the left side to tie the game in the very next at-bat.

The Eagles reclaimed the lead in the fifth inning with a two-out double that found the gap in right center. Two runners came home to score and Husson led, 4-2, in the later part of the game.

UMF got a run back in the sixth thanks to an RBI single from Trevor Hisler (Skowhegan, Maine). After Hisler’s single, the Beavers advanced runners into scoring position with a double steal. Hisler took second and Neal slid in safely to third. Farmington could not cash in as a ground out ended the Beavers bid at tying the game.

Kyle Peterson (Bethel, Maine) was handed the ball for the Beavers and gave up two earned runs and struck out two in five innings on the mound.

Game two needed extra innings to decide a winner with Husson coming out on top, 5-2.

The Beavers took a two-run lead in the bottom of the third. Ben Keene (Livermore, Maine) led off the inning with a single and then moved into scoring position from a wild pitch. Two batters later, Neal stepped up and cracked a triple to right center. Neal later scored on a wild pitch.

Husson tied the game in the sixth with a pair of runs. With the bases loaded, the Eagles drove in their first run on a fielder’s choice and then an RBI single through the right side evened the game at, 2-2.

Husson capped off the comeback with three runs in the top of the eight thanks to an RBI triple and then followed by an RBI single.

Joe Sullivan (Lewiston, Maine) nearly went the distance on the hill for UMF. The senior pitched 7 2/3 innings and struck out four Eagles.

BOX SCORE

LEWISTON, Maine – The University of Maine at Farmington baseball team (9-4, 0-4) forced five errors in Wednesday night’s, 6-4, non-conference win over the Bates College at Leahy Field.

The Beavers crossed the plate for the game’s first run in the top of the second innings. Jordan Croteau (South Paris, Maine) reached on an error and found himself only 90 feet from the dish after a walk and then moving to third on a wild pitch.

Coach Chris Bessey was aggressive with his base running calls as Nick Cartmell (Freeport, Maine) stole second after drawing the walk, then Croteau bolted for home on the catcher’s throw.

The score stayed, 1-0, until the fifth inning when UMF tacked on four more runs. With nobody out, Dustin McCrossin (Yarmouth, Maine) drew a bases-loaded walk, then Tom Grady (Whitefield, Maine) reached on an error, but two more Beavers came home to score. Croteau stepped up and lined a single to center field as McCrossin trotted home from third. Bates committed three errors in the frame.

Bates got a run back in the bottom of the seventh when an RBI double from Brendan Fox (West Hartford, Conn.). In their next at-bat, the Beavers answered back by taking advantage of another Bobcats error.

Trevor Hisler (Skowhegan, Maine) led off the seventh by reaching first the error, then advanced to third after a sacrifice bunt by Cartmell and advancing on a catcher’s throw on a called third strike. Jimmy Parks (Springvale, Maine) came through with an RBI double as the freshman roped one to the right field gap and gave UMF a, 6-2, advantage.

After plating a run in the eighth inning, the Bobcats put on their rally caps and made things really interesting in the ninth inning. Bates scored two runs to draw within, 6-4, and had a chance to tie the game. With two outs and two runners in scoring position, Joe Sullivan (Lewiston, Maine) was able to get the last batter to strike out looking to end the game.

Bradley Jackson had a solid outing on the hill for the Beavers. Jackson pitched 5 2/3 innings and only surrendered two hits and no runs.

Power Hitters Show Up for UMF in Doubleheader Sweep of Lyndon

READFIELD, Maine – The University of Maine at Farmington baseball team clubbed eleven extra-base hits on the afternoon, including three home runs in a doubleheader sweep over Lyndon State College on Sunday afternoon. At Kents Hill, the Beavers took the first game, 16-3, and then the shutout victory in game two, 4-0.

The Hornets put UMF starter Joseph Sullivan (Lewiston, Maine) into a bases-loaded jam in the second inning, but the senior battled his way out with a strikeout and an easy fly ball to left field.

Farmington gave Sullivan plenty of run support with seven runs in the second inning. Tom Grady hit a deep triple to left field and crossed the plate on a Jordan Croteau (So. Paris, Maine) single. Jimmy Parks (Springvale, Maine) singled with the bases loaded and then Sean Cabaniss (Vassalboro, Maine) came through with an RBI infield single. Dustin McCrossin (Yarmouth, Maine) followed with a two-run double down the right field line and Ben Keene (Livermore, Maine) hit and infield single, which brought Cabaniss home to score.

Trevor Hisler (Skowhegan, Maine) came through with a run-scoring single in the third inning. Two batters later, Cabaniss tripled to deep left field that brought two Beavers home to score.

Jimmy Neal (Farmington, Maine) crushed a two-run inside-the-park home run in the fourth inning to extend the Beavers’ lead to 12-0.

After the Beavers scored on a pitching balk, Grady muscled another extra-base hit with a two-run double down the left field line. Every Farmington starter reached base safely at least once during the opening game.

Sullivan pitched six solid innings and gave up one run on four hits while mowing down nine Hornet batters. Ethan Nash (Westbrook, Maine) came on to close out the seventh and recorded a pair of strikeouts.

A pair of leadoff home runs gave the Beavers and an early lead in the second game. Neal came through with a solo shot in the second inning and Cabaniss added another in the bottom of the third.

The Beavers produced two more runs in the fourth inning. Mark Leahy (Rochester, N.H.) lined an RBI double down the third base line that just stayed inside the chalk, and then Leahy came home to score after Lyndon tried to catch Chad Snowman (Dixfield, Maine) napping on first base, but the apparent pickoff throw was thrown out of play.

Kyle Peterson (Bethel, Maine) pitched a complete-game shutout for the Beavers with six strikeouts and allowed only four hits.

Cabaniss Hits a Walk-Off; UMF Splits with NEC

FARMINGTON, Maine – Sean Cabaniss (Vassalboro, Maine) hit a walk-off sacrifice fly ball in game two of a doubleheader with New England College to even the afternoon series at Hippach Field. The first game needed ten innings to decide a winner but NEC came out on top, 4-2. Cabaniss’s fly ball lifted UMF to a, 2-1, win in the night cap.

NEC rode a, 1-0, lead into the fourth inning until Chad Snowman (Dixfield, Maine) reached on a fielder’s choice with the bases loaded, but it was enough to tie the game at one-apiece.

Snowman started the rally in the bottom of the seventh inning with a frozen rope up the middle. Jimmy Parks (Springvale, Maine) laid down a sacrifice bunt, and the apparent throw brought the first baseman off the bag so the Beavers were in business with two on and nobody out. After a passed ball moved both runners up 90 feet, Cabaniss launched a fly into center field and Snowman hustled home to slide across the plate before the throw.

Snowman was 2-for-3 in game two with an RBI and run scored.

Kyle Peterson (Bethel, Maine) pitched a complete game gem with three strikeouts and gave up three hits.

UMF’s offense struggled in the first game but a clutch sacrifice fly by Ethan Gouin (Sanford, Maine) evened the score and sent the game into extra innings. Jordan Croteau (So. Paris, Maine) reached first on a catcher’s interference call to

start the one-out rally. Trevor Hisler (Skowhegan, Maine) kept the ball rolling with a double down the left field line.

Gouin came through when the Beavers needed him most with a shallow fly to center field. Croteau took it to another gear and slid in safely at home.

In the tenth, the Pilgrims took the lead for good with an RBI sacrifice bunt and a run-scoring single to right field.

Ironman Joe Sullivan (Lewiston, Maine) pitched all ten innings for UMF with seven strikeouts.

UMaine-Farmington will play New England College again on Sunday with the doubleheader starting at 12:00 p.m.

Beavers Split with NEC on Sunday; Humphrey Pitches Near No-no in Game Two

FARMINGTON, Maine – After splitting a doubleheader on Saturday, the University of Maine at Farmington baseball team split with New England College again on Sunday in doubleheader action. NEC came out on top in game one, 4-1, but UMF rebounded with a, 12-0, victory in the nightcap.

The first game was very much a pitcher’s duel with defensive support. Dustin McCrossin (Yarmouth, Maine) reached on an error in the first inning but Trevor Hisler (Skowhegan, Maine) came home to score.

NEC came back in its next at-bat to tie the game with an RBI ground out.

The game was deadlocked at one-apiece until the fourth inning when momentum swayed to the Pilgrims’ side. The Beavers had a runner in scoring position with two outs when Ben Keene (Livermore, Maine) smacked a triple to center field, but after and appeal by New England College, the umpires called Keene out for not touching first base on the pursuit of a triple.

In the top of the sixth, NEC’s Steve DeLuca launched a two-run homer to left field for the go-ahead scored and then the Pilgrims tacked on one more run later in the inning.

Bradley Jackson (Wilton, Maine) had a strong outing for the Beavers in 5 1/3 innings with three strikeouts.

Despite only having three hits in the first game, UMF rebounded in the second game with twelve hits and scored in every inning except for the first.

Jordan Croteau (So. Paris, Maine) ripped an RBI double to left center field in the second inning. UMF opened up back-to-back extra base hits in the third inning and pushed the lead to, 3-0. Keene powered an RBI triple to left center and Ethan Gouin (Sidney, Maine) followed up with an RBI double.

Tyler Flayhan (Sanford, Maine) and Hisler hit back-to-back RBI singles to left field in the fourth inning and then the duo caused havoc for the NEC defense in the fifth inning. Hisler hit a sacrifice fly to left field, then Flayhan stole second later in the inning and Chad Snowman ran home on the catcher’s throw to second.

The Beavers added three runs on four hits in the sixth inning. Jordan Daigle (Topsham, Maine) got his first career hit and RBI in the sixth inning.

Croteau was 3-for-4 in game two with a pair of runs scored.

Southpaw Jory Humphrey (Jefferson, Maine) gave up only one hit in the second inning on his way to a complete game shutout. The lefty specialist had seven strikeouts.

Fisher Silences UMF Bats in Non-Conference Doubleheader

FARMINGTON, Maine – On a cold and drizzly afternoon, the University of Maine at Farmington baseball team (14-10) were held without a run in back-to-back contests for the first time this season. Fisher College shutout the Beavers, 10-0, in game one of a non-conference doubleheader at Hippach Field on Monday.

As the rain started to cascade, the playing conditions worsened and the Falcons seem to find the holes in the Beavers defense for the early lead.

After surrendering four runs in the top of the second, UMF had a chance to trim Fisher’s lead in the bottom of the frame. Jimmy Neal (Farmington, Maine) started off the inning with a single to right field and Tom Grady (Whitefield, Maine) ripped a single into left to put the Beavers in business. A strikeout and a pair of groundouts ended the scoring threat for Farmington.

Riley Chickering (Otisfield, Maine) battled the conditions with six strong innings with three strikeouts while issuing one walk.

The Beavers had more chances in the second contest, but still could not come through with a much-needed clutch hit. UMF trailed after a half of an inning and managed to put runners in scoring position in the first and third innings, but each rally came with at least one out.

Mark Leahy (Rochester, N.H.) started game two for the Beavers and pitched 5 2/3 innings and gave up three runs on nine hits with one strikeout.

UMaine-Farmington returns to conference action with a doubleheader at Thomas College starting at 2:00 p.m.
