Baseball Sweeps Middlebury In Senior Day Doubleheader

BRUNSWICK, Maine – The Bowdoin baseball team swept Middlebury for a pair of wins on Saturday afternoon to close out the team's final home stand.

The Polar Bears are 16-18 after taking a pair of wins over the Panthers (4-22) in a non-conference matchup between two NESCAC East and West teams. Bowdoin travels to Saint Joseph's College for a noon game tomorrow. Middlebury remains on the road facing NESCAC East top-seed Tufts in a non-conference doubleheader tomorrow.

Due to other results around the league, Bowdoin did not qualify for the NESCAC Tournament, finishing in third place in the NESCAC East Division.

Game One Recap – Bowdoin 3, Middlebury 2

The only runs of the series opener were scored in the first and last innings of the game, with the Polar Bears putting up three in the bottom of the first and the Panthers getting on the board with two in the seventh.

Chad Martin tripled to right center in the number three spot to drive in Aaron Rosen and Chris Cameron for the quick 2-0 lead. Marin eventually came around to score off an RBI by Sam Canales who chopped a ball to the first baseman.

Both pitchers dueled six innings on the mound for their respective teams. Erik Jacobsen allowed five hits and as many strikeouts for Bowdoin, matched by Robert Erikson who allowed three runs off three hits with five strikeouts.

Ryan Rizzo led off the top of the seventh with a long double to left field, moving to third on a groundout, and eventually scoring on a wild pitch. Trailing 3-1, the Panthers pushed another run across the plate as Dylan Sinnickson cleared the fence with solo shot. Jon Fraser induced a groundout on the following batter to end the inning and secure Bowdoin's win.

Game Two Recap – Bowdoin 8, Middlebury 2

Again, Bowdoin held the Panthers scoreless until their final at bat in game two of the Saturday series. The Polar Bears got on the board in the bottom of the second off an RBI single to right from Tom Wells. Bowdoin added three more runs in the third, beginning with a Jacobsen single to center scoring Cameron. With the runner sitting at second, Aaron Rosen blasted a homerun to left field to put two more runs on the board.

Jacobsen again drove in Cameron in the bottom of the fifth with an RBI single through the right side. Sam Canales added two more to Bowdoin's total, making it 7-0, as he singled to drive in Martin and Jacobsen. The Polar Bears' final run came off a groundout by Stephen Girolamo that pushed Chris Nadeau across the plate.

Middlebury got two runs back in the top of the seventh after loading the bases. Jake Turtel drove in Johnny Read to ruin the shutout and Dinnickson quickly doubled the Panthers' run tally with an RBI single to right. Bowdoin escaped without any further damage to earn the sweep.

Harry Ridge recorded the win for Bowdoin with six innings of work. The junior struck out five and walked three, while allowing just two hits. Tucker Meredith started on the mound for Middlebury and worked two innings with four hits.
