WATERVILLE, Maine -- Tyler Schwanz had a home run and two doubles for the University of Maine and relief pitcher Connor Johnson threw five strong innings in the Black Bears' 9-3 win over Colby College in non-conference baseball Wednesday at Coombs Field.

University of Maine improved to 16-27 overall, while the Mules played their final home game and dropped to 11-22.

After the Mules scored two runs in the bottom of the first inning, the Black Bears went ahead for good with four runs in the top of the second. The game stayed close until Maine added two more runs in the seventh. After Colby scored a lone run in the eighth, the Black Bears pulled away with three in the top of the ninth.

Colby scored two runs in the bottom of the first to take the early lead, but the Mules missed out on a terrific opportunity to score more. Zach Ellenthal, now batting .392 on the season, led off with a double. Tommy Forese reached on an error and went to second while Ellenthal was held at third. Tyler Mulberry singled to score Ellenthal and push Forese to third. Matt Garcia had an infield single to plate Forese with the second run. Colby loaded the bases with one out after a Dan Csaplar infield single, but Maine turned a 6-4-3 double play to stop any further damage.

The dreaded lead-off walk to Kevin Stypulkowski started the four-run second inning for the Black Bears. On a 2-1 count, Schwanz homered to center field to tie the game. Brenden Geary followed with a single to center field and Jonathan Salcedo reached on an error. Caleb Kerbs put down a sacrifice bunt to push the runners up a base and Lou Della Fera grounded out to second base to score Geary. Salcedo scored the fourth run on a single to center field by Jeremy Pena.

The game stayed 4-2 until the top of the seventh inning behind great relief pitching from Johnson. He threw five innings, allowed two hits, struck out nine and walked none.

Kerbs started the seventh inning for the Black Bears with a single to center field and then stole second base. He moved to third on a ground out to second base and scored on Pena's double to left field. Danny Casals singled to left field to get Pena to third base. Colin Ridley drove in Pena after grounding out to second base.

Ellenthal singled to start the eighth inning for the Mules, moved to second on a wild pitch, and scored when Tommy Forese singled and there was an error in the outfield on the play.

The Mules got the first two outs in the top of the ninth, but Casals ripped a triple to center field. Ridley followed with a double to get the seventh run home. Stypulkowski homered to right field for the final two runs.

Casals joined Schwanz with three hits, while Pena had two hits for the Black Bears.

Ellenthal had three hits and scored twice for Colby.

Lehman eliminates UMPI baseball team

STATEN ISLAND, New York — The Lehman College Lightning scored four runs in the first inning en route to an 8-2 win over the University of Maine-Presque Isle Owls in a play-in game of the City University of New York Athletic Conference baseball tourney Thursday.

The Lightning would jump on the Owls in the first as Christopher Lopez, James Kennedy, and Anthony Careccia would all rip RBI singles in the inning for the four-run lead.

Lehman would strike again in the third, when Juan Arias would double to lead off the inning. Matthew Prevosti would drive him home with a triple to center, and later score on Careccia’s single to right.

The Owls offense was held off-balance all afternoon. Matt Curry and Ryan Sanderson would both walk and an error would load the bases in the sixth inning. A sharply hit ball to short by Andrew Bartlett would drive in the first run for UMPI. Another error would allow Sanderson to score, allowing the Owls to cut the lead to 6-2.

The Owls would end up with just four hits in the game. Two unearned runs from Lehman in the top of the ninth would put the game out of reach, and the Lightning would move on in the tournament.

Solomon Fast and Tommy Collins each added a single for UMPI.

UMPI finishes at 12-26 and and Lehman is now 9-26.

Eagles Walk-off with Win over UMF

CASTLETON, Vt. – The second seeded Husson University baseball team came from behind to take down the fourth seeded University of Maine at Farmington (UMF) in walk-off suicide squeeze bunt fashion on day one of the 2016 North Atlantic Conference (NAC) Baseball Championship Tournament on Friday afternoon at Spartan Field. The Eagles won the game 6-5 in 10 innings.

Husson (22-19) extends their postseason winning streak to eight over the University of Maine at Farmington (23-15) and approves to 12-2 all-time versus the Beavers in the postseason.

UMF jumped out to a 1-0 lead in the first inning after forcing an infield error by Mike Wong. In the third inning, the Beavers increased the lead to 2-0 after Ben Keene crushed an RBI triple to right field.

After Husson answered with a run in the bottom of the third inning off a sacrifice fly by Zach Sugar, Jimmy Parks gave UMF a two-run advantage again with an RBI single through the right side.

The Beavers tacked on two more runs in the top of the eighth inning off a RBI single by Grayson Beressi and another Eagle miscue by Wong but the Eagles tied the game with one swing of the bat in the bottom of the eighth. With two outs and the bases loaded, Alex Chapman belted a grand slam over the right field fence to tie the game at 5-5.

UMF had scoring chances in the ninth and tenth inning but could not plate an eventual game-winning run thanks to outstanding pitching by Robert Graff.

In the bottom of the tenth, Husson drew the bases loaded with one out and head coach, Jason Harvey '06 called for a suicide squeeze. Dan Whitney started running for home and Cam Archer laid down a perfect suicide squeeze bunt and UMF's throw home was too late to tag out Whitney giving the Eagles the 6-5 walk-off victory to advance to day two of the NAC Baseball Championship Tournament.

Whitten and Sugar led the Eagles with two hits while Chapman added four RBIs. Boone and Whitten were credit with a double and Chapman a homerun.

Graff (3-3) was credited with the victory after pitching two scoreless relief innings allowing just two walks while throwing 14 of 24 pitches for strikes. Brandon Reilly started the game but did not factor into the decision after yielding five runs (three earned) on 11 hits with a walk while fanning three over seven innings.

UMF's two-through-four hitters in the lineup combined to hit 7-for-12 with three runs scored and two RBI. Trevor Hisler had three hits, including two doubles and Nate Pushard (4-3) took the loss after allowing one earned run off one hit with a pair of walks in 0.1 innings. Jory Humphrey started the game and earned a no-decision, working six innings and allowing just one earned run on three hits while walking three. Mark Leahy pitched three innings of relief allowing four hits, four earned runs with a pair of walks and strikeouts.

The Eagles will face the top seed and host Castleton tomorrow in a winners bracket game at 1:30 p.m. to determine who will advance to Sunday's NAC Baseball Championship Final Game, while the loser will play Thomas in an elimination game at 4:30 p.m.
