Eagles' and Polar Bears Split, 1-0 & 5-11

Bangor, ME - It was Senior night at the Winkin Complex as eight Husson Seniors were honored before game 1 of a double header against Bowdoin College. The Eagles and Polar Bears spilt the doubleheader as the Husson would take game 1, 1-0 in 9 innings and the Polar Bears would take the night cap 11-5.

Game 1 - Husson 1, Bowdoin 0 in 9 innings:

The pitching was the story in game one as both pitching staffs held each other scoreless until the bottom of the ninth with one out, when the Eagles scored the lone run. Brandon Gendreau hit an infield single down the third base line that ended up in no man's land scoring Seth Freudenberger from third base with the winning run.

The Eagles had a chance to win the game in the bottom of the eighth but the Polar Bears' defense came up big. With the winning run on second with two outs, Jordan Carter hit a single up the middle to Peter Cimini who was playing centerfield threw a bullet to Chris Nadeau, who taged out Kyle Bishop at home plate.

Dennis O'Neil threw the first eight innings of shutout ball for the Eagles, giving up just four singles and walking two batters while striking out six. Steve Hanscom pitched a perfect top of the ninth to pick up his first career win.

Richard Arms took the loss for the Polar Bears, their fifth pitcher of the day. Arms pitched a third of inning, allowed one run on one hit and walking two batters.

Game 2 - Bowdoin 11, Husson 5:

The Polar Bears would get on the board early in the first inning as Erik Jacobsen scored on a RBI triple to center field by Aaron Rosen. Rosen would score Bowdoin's second run of inning on a fielding error by the shortstop and Chad Martin would extend the lead to 3-0 on a wild pitch.

Husson would tie the game up in the bottom of the first on three hits and one Polar Bear error. Gendreau would hit the first double of the inning to left center sending Andrew Curran to third base but Curran would score the Eagles' first run of game on a throwing error by Cimini. On the very next pitch Kyle Bishop hit a RBI double to left center send Gendreau home with the second run. Bishop would score the tying run on a RBI single by Jordan Carter.

Bowdoin retook the lead in the top of the second on a RBI triple by Sam Canales scoring Nadeau and a two-run single by Rosen scoring Cimini and Canales.

The Polar Bears added four more runs in the top of the fourth on a RBI single by Jacobsen, a two-run triple by Chad Martin and a sacrifice fly by Bjorn Hansen.

The Eagles got one of those runs back in the bottom half of the fourth when Duncan Finigan, who entered the game in relief of starting pitcher Connor Rooney walked Curran.

Bowdoin extended their lead to 11-4 in the top of sixth when Martin launched a Corey Mongiat pitch over the left field fence.

Husson added one more run in the bottom of the seventh when Christian Corneil doubled down the right field line scoring Bishop. Kyle Stanley would get Carter to groundout to second to end game to pick up the three and two thirds of inning save.

Taking the loss was Tommy Burns, who pitched two innings, giving up 4 hits, allowing 6 runs which only four were earned, walking two while striking out two. The win went to Connor Rooney, who pitched three innings, allowing 4 hits and 3 runs, walking none and striking out three.

Husson's record now stands at 18-12 and the Polar Bears at 9-14.

Five-Run Second Inning Propels Baseball to Win Over Bates

Bangor, ME – A five-run second inning is all Husson baseball needed on a damp, cloudy Tuesday afternoon, en route to a 6-3 over the Bobcats of Bates College. The Eagles used six pitchers on the evening, as Dennis O'Neil got the start and came out in the fifth to kick off the nine-inning tilt.

With the bases loaded in the fifth, She Freudenberger singled to right for the game's first run scored by Adam Wilson. Bates right fielder Nate Pajka threw off the mark on the play back to the infield and the Eagles scored another run via Christian Corneil.

Moments later, Andrew Curran also singled to right, this time right along the line at first and the ball skipped off the bag. Freduenberger and Jordan Carter both scored on the play to make it 4-0 HU.

The final run of the inning came uneared, as Ryan Rebar scored on a botched check of Brandon Gendreau by the pitcher throwing to first base. All five runs went to starter Connor Russell of Bates.

The Eagles added their sixth run in the fourth off reliever Samuel Warren. Gendreau this time grounded out to second and Freudenberger scored.

Ben Holmes gave up the three Bates runs in the sixth, but it would not be enough for the Bobcats on Alfond Diamond in a game that took two hours and twenty-two minutes to complete.

Corey Mongiat picked up his team-leading third save on the season, the most by an Eagle since now-assistant coach Shawn Smith had three in 2013.

Husson will close out their 2015 regular season campaign with a four-game set with New England College this weekend in New Hampshire and then at Colby Tuesday the 28th.
