4/24/16 – Monks Take Two from Falcons, 6-1 & 11-4
STANDISH, Maine – Saint Joseph’s College (20-10, 10-2 GNAC) picked up a pair of victories over Albertus Magnus College (11-18, 5-7 GNAC) in Great Northeast Athletic Conference (GNAC) baseball action at Larry Mahaney Diamond on Sunday afternoon. The Monks won the opener by a 6-1 margin and toppled the Falcons, 11-4, in the second game to complete the sweep.
In the first game, Albertus Magnus opened the scoring with a run off two hits and a Saint Joseph’s error in the top of the first, but the Monks answered with six runs in their first four turns and sophomore starter Josh Partridge (Deerfield, N.H.) stymied the Falcons to pick up his third win of the season.
Saint Joseph’s took command early in the nightcap, as the Royal Blue scored a run in the first and plated nine off seven hits and an Albertus miscue in the second. Overall, the Monks registered 16 hits – including four doubles, a triple, and a home run – and employed seven different pitchers in the one-sided victory.
In the two wins combined, junior infielder Taylor Black (Cardiff by the Sea, Calif.) hit for the cycle and went 6-7 with four runs, two doubles, a triple, a home run, and three RBI.

• AMC junior starter Michael Terzi (Wallingford, Conn.) falls to 1-4 after yielding six runs (four earned) off seven hits and four walks with two punch-outs over 4.1 innings

• AMC senior reliever Oscar Ogando (Elkton, Md.) tossed 1.2 innings of two-hit, scoreless relief

• The Falcons took advantage of an infield error, as freshman left fielder Derwin Nunez (Bridgeport, Conn.) led off and reached on the miscue and later scored on a bases-loaded single off the bat of Lockman

• The Monks responded with two runs off three hits in the bottom of the first, as Black led off with a ground-rule double to right and trotted home three batters later when Collins worked a bases-loaded walk and Lops singled and later scored on a throwing error

• St. Joe’s added two runs off two hits in the second, when freshman third baseman Noah McDaniel (Eliot, Maine) walked and junior left fielder Dan Donovan (Lynn, Mass.) singled to set the stage for Black, who knocked both in with a triple to right-center

• Leading 4-1 in the top of the third, Partridge found himself in a jam with the bases loaded and one out, but induced a 4-6-3 double play off the bat of senior Ted Gravel (Morris, Conn.) to cease the threat

• The Monks capped the game scoring with single runs in the third and fourth innings, as junior first baseman Brett Barbati (Melrose, Mass.) was hit by a pitch and later scored on an error in the former and Black doubled and eventually crossed the plate on a Collins single in the latter

• SJC junior southpaw Ben Coleman (Williamstown, Mass.), LeVangie, and senior Corey McNamara (West Newbury, Mass.) combined to work 2.1 innings of one-hit ball with five strikeouts

• AMC junior starter Adam Olszyk (Hamden, Conn.) took the loss and falls to 0-1 after giving up six runs (five earned) off six hits and a walk in 1.2 innings

Saint Joseph’s travels to Bowdoin College on Tuesday for a non-conference game starting at 4:00 PM. Albertus Magnus faces Western Connecticut State University on Wednesday in a non-league twin bill slated to begin at 4:00 PM.

UMF Baseball Eclipses All-Time Wins Record in Colby-Sawyer Sweep

FARMINGTON, Maine – The 2016 University of Maine at Farmington baseball team (21-14, 13-9) became the first team in the 63-year history of the program to record a 20-win season. The Beavers broke the record, set by the 1988 squad, with a North Atlantic Conference doubleheader sweep over Colby-Sawyer College (13-21, 8-14) on Saturday afternoon at Hippach Field.

The Beavers set the mark in game one with a 5-2 win and then held on to win game two, 4-3.

Ben Keene (Livermore, Maine/Spruce Mountain) got the offense started in the first inning of game one with a sacrifice fly.

After Colby-Sawyer answered with an RBI double in the top of the second inning off the bat of Brendan Thurbur, UMF came back with a pair of runs in the bottom of the frame. Sean Cabaniss (Vassalboro, Maine/Erskine Academy) roped a two-run single through the left side of the infield to give the Beavers a 3-1 lead.

Colby-Sawyer moved it back to a one-run game in the top of the third when Nathan Frongillo lined an RBI single to left field.

UMF’s 3-2 lead stood until the bottom of the fifth inning when the offense padded the advantage with two more runs. The Beavers strung together four straight one-out singles, including RBI base hits from Jordan Croteau (South Paris, Maine/Oxford Hills) and Dustin McCrossin (Yarmouth, Maine/Yarmouth).

Jimmy Parks (Springvale, Maine/Sanford) was 2-for-3 in the first game and Cabaniss registered two RBI.

Nate Pushard (Auburn, Maine/Edward Little) tossed a complete game on the hill for UMF. Pushard fanned four hitters and surrendered one earned run on eight hits.

The Beavers prevailed in the bottom of the inning with three RBI singles from Cabaniss, Tom Grady (Whitefield, Maine/Erskine Academy), and McCrossin.

McCrossin recorded his second RBI of the game with a sacrifice fly to left field in the bottom of the third inning and gave UMF a 4-1 lead.

In the top of the fifth inning, Colby-Sawyer made it a one-run game with two more runs. The Chargers led off the inning with an infield single and then Joey Fenuccio drove a line drive to left field and moved all the way to third after a UMF outfield error. Fenuccio came home to score one batter later on an RBI groundout by Jackson Musco.

Riley Chickering (Otisfield, Maine/Oxford Hills) threw UMF’s second complete game victory of the afternoon. Chickering struck out four Chargers and allowed one earned run on nine hits.

Baseball edged by Tufts, 6-5 in 12 innings

LEWISTON, Maine -- The Bates baseball team scored three times in the eighth inning to tie the game but Tufts pushed across a run in the 12th to prevail 6-5 Sunday afternoon at Leahey Field.

Sunday's game is the longest innings wise the Bobcats have played in NESCAC play since an 8-5 13-inning victory over Trinity in 2012.

Bates (12-19, 4-8 NESCAC) never led as they fell behind early in the game by a count of 3-0.

After cruising through the first two innings, starting pitcher Anthony Telesca '17 (Holtsville, N.Y.) ran into some trouble in the third against the Jumbos (26-6, 11-1 NESCAC). Tom Petry singled to start the frame. Christian Zazzali drew a walk and the Jumbos bunted the runners over. A Cody McCallum infield single drove in Petry and a wild pitch plated Zazzali to put the Jumbos up 2-0. ... 0501rhme2a
