Richards is USM’s sidearm savior
When the Huskies need him, Andrew Richards is ready to pitch – as a starter, setup man or closer.

GORHAM — Andrew Richards is an unlikely ace.

He’s not a starting pitcher, but he is the one pitcher Ed Flaherty wants on the mound in a big moment, no matter when that occurs.

“You try to hold them off and bring him in the game when the game’s on the line,” said Flaherty, in his 30th season as the University of Southern Maine baseball coach. “And more often than not he’s going to win it for you.”

usm release:

Scates Pitches Six-Hit Shutout as USM Defeats Suffolk 4-0

HARWICH, Mass. -- Junior right-hander Shyler Scates (Jefferson, Maine/Erskine Academy) scattered six hits over nine innings as the top-seeded University of Southern Maine Huskies opened up the NCAA Division III Regional Tournament with a 4-0 shutout of the eighth-seeded Suffolk University Rams Wednesday afternoon at Whitehouse Field.

Scates did not allow a Suffolk runner past second base during the game. The 6-foot-4 righty did not walk a batter, hit two batters and struck out six en route to his second career shutout. Scates two career shutouts have both come in postseason play. His previous shutout was in last year's Little East Conference Tournament against Rhode Island College.

Sophomore Jake Welch (Londonderry, N.H.) and rookie Brandon Martins (Manorville, N.Y./Eastport South Manor) combined for five of the Huskies' eight hits in the game. Martins had a double and two singles, scored once and had an RBI while Welch had two singles and scored a run. Junior Nick DiBiase (Portland, Maine/Deering) had two RBI. Sophomore Paul McDonough (Wells, Maine) had his 23rd double of the season to tie the Huskies' single-season record and three walks.

Senior JC Collette (Amesbury, Mass.) solved Scates for a pair of singles for the Rams. Senior Adam Johnson (Georgetown, Mass.) had the lone extra-base hit for Suffolk, a two-out double in the second inning. Senior southpaw Josh Desai (Shrewsbury, Mass.) went the distance on the hill giving up four runs (three earned) on eight hits and four walks while fanning five.

After squandering a one-out, bases-loaded opportunity in the first inning, the Huskies reached Desai for a pair of runs in each of the next two innings. In the second, Welch and Martins opened the inning with back-to-back singles. An infield error on rookie Nick Bowie's (South Paris, Maine/Oxford Hills) sacrifice bunt attempt loaded the bases. Welch scored the first run on DiBiase's fielder's choice, and Martins scored later on a failed pickoff attempt that resulted in a throwing error.

The Huskies doubled their advantage in the third inning. Rookie Devin Warren (Smithfield, Maine/Messalonskee) and senior Dylan Morris (Bangor, Maine) were both hit by a Desai pitch to open the frame. Welch followed with a single to load the bases for Martin. The rookie second baseman came through with a single to right center to drive in Warren, and Morris scored two batters later as DiBiase lifted a sacrifice fly to left field.

The Huskies got a runner as far as third base in the fifth when Martins doubled and advanced on a wild pitch, but he was stranded as Desai got a strikeout and a ground out to end the inning.

Southern Maine will take on Salem State University on Thursday (4:30) in a winner's bracket game. Salem State defeated M.I.T. 6-2 in the opening game of the eight-team, double-elimination tournament. Suffolk will play an elimination game against M.I.T. tomorrow morning (10:00 a.m.).

Salem State Defeats Southern Maine 10-1

HARWICH, Mass. -- Senior Ryan Beliveau (Lynn, Mass.) and junior Richard Fecteau (Newbury, Mass.) combined for five hits and eight RBI as the fourth-seeded Salem State University Vikings got the jump on the top-seeded University of Southern Maine Huskies to take a 10-1 victory Thursday in Game Seven of the NCAA Division III Regional Tournament being played at Whitehouse Field.

The win sends the Vikings (27-13) into the winner’s bracket game (Game 11) against the winner of the late game between Ramapo College and Curry College. The Huskies will face an elimination game on Friday (10:00 a.m.) against Wesleyan University. Wesleyan stayed alive on Thursday by defeating Castleton State College 7-4.

A costly miscue in the first inning led to four unearned runs for the Vikings. A mishandled throw with the bases loaded gave the Vikings a 1-0 lead before Beliveau cleared the bases with a two-out double to left-center field.

The Huskies tried to get back into the game in the second inning, but squandered a one-out, bases-loaded against Salem State sophomore starter Mike Richardson (Belmont, Mass.).

Salem State added five runs in its half of the second inning as Fecteau drove in two with a single down the right field line, freshman Dan Connors (Danvers, Mass.) plated the third run with a sacrifice fly, and Beliveau slammed a triple to center field to delivered in the fourth and fifth runs.

Richardson, who retired eight in a row from the second through fourth innings, surrendered one run on five hits and one walk while striking out four to improve to 7-2 on the season. The Huskies finally reached the second-year right-hander for a run in the eighth inning as sophomore Damon Wallace (Gorham, Maine) led off the inning with a double, advanced to third on a ground out and scored on a sacrifice fly from junior Sam Dexter (Oakland, Maine/Messalonskee).

Led by Fecteau and Beliveau, the Vikings had 12 hits against six USM hurlers. Senior leadoff hitter Kevin Carens (Northborough, Mass./Algonquin Regional) and sophomore Andrew Deloury (Andover, Mass.) had three hits apiece.

The Vikings added their 10th run in the seventh inning as Fecteau’s infield single scored sophomore Teghan Malionek (Salem, Mass.).

Sophomore Matt Bender (Walpole, Mass.) was the lone repeat hitter for the Huskies. Junior left-hander Tyler Leavitt (North Andover, Mass.) started on the hill and was tagged with the loss.

Wesleyan Knocks Out Southern Maine 4-1

HARWICH, Mass. -- The University of Southern Maine baseball team’s bid for a third straight trip to the NCAA Division III World Series was cut short Friday morning as the Wesleyan University Cardinals defeated the Huskies 4-1 in an elimination game of the NCAA Division III New England Regional Tournament being played at Whitehouse Field.

The loss ends the Huskies’ season with a 32-15 overall record. The Cardinals, 30-10 overall, will continue on to another elimination game tonight (7:45 p.m.) against M.I.T. The tournament is an eight-team, double-elimination affair with the winner going on to Appleton, Wisconsin, for the NCAA Division III World Series.

Junior Pete Rantz (Boca Raton, Fla.) stifled the Huskies’ offense pitching seven shutout innings. Rantz gave up five hits and did not walk a batter while striking out two to improve his record to 5-2.

Senior Sam Elias (Norwood, N.J.) was nicked for an unearned run in the eighth inning, and got out of jam in the ninth after hitting the leadoff hitter and walking the next batter to bring the potential tying run to the plate.

Sophomore Ellis Schaefer (Newtown Square, Pa.) led the Wesleyan offense going 3 for 3 and scoring a run. Sophomore Nick Miceli (West Hartford, Conn.) and junior Marco Baratta (Tenafly, N.J.) had a pair of hits apiece. Miceli had the lone extra-base hit - an RBI double in the seventh inning - in the game.

Senior right-hander Andrew Richards (South Portland, Maine) got the call on the mound for the Huskies. Richards went the distance allowing four runs (three earned) on 11 hits and one walk while striking out a career-high 11. No Southern Maine batter managed multiple hits off of Rantz and Elias.

Wesleyan grabbed a 1-0 in the top of the first as senior Donnie Cimino (Westwood, N.J.) singled with one out and moved to second on a single by junior Guy Davidson (New York, N.Y.). Richards got a strikeout for the second out, but senior Sam Goodwin-Boyd (Florence, Mass.) singled home Cimino with the game’s first run.

That lone run stood up until the seventh inning as Richards and Rantz matched zeroes on the scoreboard over the next five innings.

The Cardinals took advantage of a couple of Husky miscues in the seventh inning to tack up three insurance runs. Miceli’s RBI double with one out brought in the first run of the inning. Cimino reached on an infield error that brought the second run across the plate. Miceli scored an unearned run on another Husky infield miscue with two outs.

Southern Maine had a golden opportunity in the eighth inning to get back into the game loading the bases with no outs on an infield error, a walk and a single by sophomore Damon Wallace (Gorham, Maine). Elias got the pitcher’s best friend - a double play - that allowed an unearned run to score. After a single by junior Sam Dexter (Oakland, Maine/Messalonskee) put runners at the corners, Elias got the final out on a fielder’s choice.

The Huskies got the tying run to the plate in the ninth after Elias hit sophomore Matt Bender (Walpole, Mass.) with a pitch and walked rookie Devin Warren (Smithfield, Maine/Messalonskee) to lead off the inning. However, Elias would get the next three batters to end the game.
