USM release:

Southern Maine Holds Off Wisconsin-Oshkosh 7-4

WINTER HAVEN, Fla. -- Senior right-hander Shyler Scates (Jefferson, Maine/Erskine Academy) pitched a complete game as the #5/#7 ranked University of Southern Maine Huskies held off the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh Titans 7-4 in non-conference baseball action Thursday morning at Chain O Lakes Park.

The win was the second straight for the Huskies and improved their overall record to 6-2. The Huskies are 4-2 to date on their annual spring trip. The Titans dropped their second straight game falling to 3-8 overall.

Scates gave up four runs (three earned) on 15 singles and no walks while striking out one to notch his third win of the season. The 6-foot-4 senior threw just 98 pitches for his third complete game of the season. Scates also had the benefit of three double plays.

Sophomore Sam Stauble (Harrison, Maine/Bridgton Academy) continued his red-hit hitting for the Huskies going 3 for 4 with an RBI. Stauble has hit safely in all eight games this season and is now batting .633 (19 for 30).

Senior Sam Dexter (Oakland, Maine/Messalonskee) and juniors Matt Bender (Walpole, Mass.) and Paul McDonough (Wells, Maine) had two hits apiece. Dexter had the lone extra base hit in the game, a third-inning double that made him the Huskies all-time leader for doubles. Dexter, who now has 64 career doubles, passed former All-American Bob Prince (1989-92) for the top spot in the record book.

Sophomores Andy Brahier (Jefferson, Wis.) and Taylor Grimm (Cedarburg, Wis.) and senior Robbie Kleman (Oshkosh, Wis.) each had three hits for the Titans. Rookie right-hander Colan Treml (Sycamore, Ill.) started on the mound for the Titans going the first five innings. Treml dropped to 2-2 on the season after allowing five runs (three earned) on seven hits and no walks while striking out three.

USM struck for a pair of unearned runs in the first inning and added two more markers in the third to stake Scates to a 4-0 lead. In the first, Dexter and senior Jake Glauser (Goffstown, N.H.) picked up RBI with sacrifice flies. Dexter ignited the Huskies’ two-run third with his leadoff double, and scored on a McDonough single. After a single by Stauble, McDonough stole third and scored on a throwing error.

The Titans struck back for three runs in the fourth inning stringing together five consecutive singles. Kleman and junior Tyler Kozlowski (Menomonee Falls, Wis.) had RBI singles. Kleman scored the third run on an error.

Southern Maine added an insurance run in the fifth when Dexter was hit by a pitch, stole second and took third on a throwing error, and scored on a Stauble base hit. The Huskies used three singles and two more sacrifice flies in the eighth to plate two more runs.

UWO made things interesting in the ninth scoring a run and loading the bases with one out before Scates induced a game-ending double play from Kleman.

Southern Maine will play the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater on Friday (11:30 a.m.). UW-Oshkosh heads back home and plays next on April 2 with a doubleheader at the University of Chicago.

WATERVILLE, Maine -- Colby College's Soren Hanson (Billerica, Maine), who was strong on the mound and at the plate in the team's trip to Arizona, was named the New England Small College Athletic Conference Baseball Player of the Week on Monday.

Hanson batted .450 for the week, with five doubles on his nine hits, and had four runs, four RBI, three walks, a .542 on-base percentage, and a .700 slugging percentage.

An All-NESCAC First Team selection last year, Hanson also was strong in the field while playing first base and pitching. He had no errors in 20 chances and had three assists.

Hanson pitched a gem in Saturday's 9-2 victory over Williams College. He allowed no runs over eight innings, scattered four hits, struck out nine, and walked two. Hanson helped his own cause with three hits, including two doubles, one run and one RBI in the victory.

Hanson showed his arm strength by getting stronger as the game wore on. He had 1-2-3 innings in the sixth and eighth innings. After a walk and an error put runners on first and third with no outs in the seventh, Hanson got the next three batters without allowing a run.

In the latest NESCAC statistics, Hanson is first in the conference in earned run average (0.64) and fourth in strikeouts (17). He is the lone player among the top five in strikeouts with less than 20 innings. Hanson has 17 strikeouts in 14 innings and just three walks.

Southern Maine Pounds Framingham State 16-5

NORTHBOROUGH, Mass. -- Senior Sam Dexter (Oakland, Maine/Messalonskee) went 3 for 5, including his first two home runs of the season, with a career-high six RBI as the #14/#15 ranked University of Southern Maine Huskies pounded out 19 hits en route to a 16-5 victory over Framingham State University in a non-conference game Tuesday afternoon at the New England Baseball Complex.

The win snapped a two-losing skid for the Huskies, and improved their overall record to 7-4. The Rams dropped their fourth straight to fall to 3-8 overall.

Dexter had an RBI double in the first inning to help USM build a 2-0 lead. He hit a two-run homer in his third turn at bat in the fifth inning, and had a three-run shot to cap off the Huskies’ six-run seventh inning. The six RBI surpass his previous single-game high of four against Plymouth State University on April 20, 2013.

Seniors Nick DiBiase (Portland, Maine/Deering) and Jake Glauser (Goffstown, N.H.) and rookie Kip Richard (Kennebunk, Maine) also had three hits for the Huskies. Glauser and Richard had a double among their three hits. DiBiase scored three runs, and Glauser scored twice. Richard tallied one run and drove in two.

Rookie right-hander Jack Donnelly (Walpole, Mass.) started on the hill for USM and went 5.2 innings to pick up his first win of the season. Donnelly allowed three runs on seven hits and one walk while fanning five.

Juniors Manny Powers (Malden, Mass.) and Ryan Wardwell (Hudson, Mass.) led the Rams at the plate with three hits apiece. Powers drove in a pair of runs, while Wardwell scored twice. Senior pitcher Dillon Corliss (Winterport, ME) took the loss for the Rams going five innings and allowing five runs (four earned) on seven hits with four strikeouts.

In the opening frame, DiBiase led off the game with a single and scored on Dexter’s double to right field. Dexter then stole third and would score on a sacrifice fly by Richard.

USM added a single run in the third when junior Paul McDonough (Wells, Maine) was hit by a pitch, stole second and scored on a single from Richard.

DiBiase led off the fifth with a single and trotted home on Dexter’s shot over the center field fence.

The Rams got on the board in the bottom of the fifth on back-to-back doubles from Powers and freshman Anthony Venuti (Braintree, Mass.). Venuti then came around with the second run on an RBI base hit from classmate Aaron Rios (Stratford, Conn.).

The Huskies picked up two, and the Rams got one, in the sixth to make it 7-3. Southern Maine put the game away with six runs in the seventh, highlighted by a two-run double from junior Matt Bender (Walpole, Mass.) and Dexter’s second round tripper of the day.

Southern Maine is back in action on Wednesday (3:30 p.m.) traveling to Endicott College. Framingham State will play at Salve Regina University on Wednesday (3:30 p.m.).

UMF Knocks Off Husson for the First Time Since 2011

BANGOR, Maine – University of Maine at Farmington baseball (8-3, 1-1) split a North Atlantic Conference doubleheader with Husson University (6-6, 1-1) on Wednesday afternoon at Winkin Sports Complex. The Beavers snapped a winless drought against the Eagles, dating back to 2011, with a 6-3 win in the second game, but fell 5-0 in the first game of the afternoon.

UMF used a six-run sixth inning in the second game to upset Husson. The Beavers trailed 2-0 heading into the top of the sixth inning, but used a passed ball to get on the scoreboard and then Jimmy Neal (Farmington, Maine/Mt. Blue) lined an RBI double to tie the game. Mark Leahy (Rochester, N.H./Spaulding) and Jimmy Parks (Springvale, Maine/Sanford) came through with a pair of RBI singles later in the inning. Parks later scored on a passed ball and then Sean Cabaniss (Vassalboro, Maine/Erskine Academy) lined an RBI single to right field to cap off the big inning.

Riley Chickering (Otisfield, Maine/Oxford) shut down the Eagles’ offense with six innings on the hill and surrendered three earned runs.

The Beavers were held in check in the first game but had their opportunities early. In the top of the third, Parks singled to lead off the inning and moved to third base after two groundouts, but UMF could not produce a clutch two-out hit to drive Parks the extra 90 feet. Farmington had a runner in scoring position in five separate innings.

Nate Pushard (Auburn, Maine/Edward Little) pitched a complete game and fanned four Husson hitters.

Parks finished the afternoon 2-for-5 at the plate with a run scored and an RBI.

UMaine-Farmington travels to Colby on Thursday for a nine inning showdown.
