Baseball Falls to No. 3 Texas Tech in Season Opener, 4-2

LUBBOCK, Texas – The University of Maine baseball team battled No. 3 Texas Tech in the very first game of the 2018 season on Friday afternoon, but came up on the short end of a 4-2 final at Rip Griffin Stadium.

Danny Casals had two hits on the day while Brandon Vicens and Christopher Bec each added one. Jeremy Pena and Hernen Sardinas each knocked in a run, with Pena and Vicens both crossing the plate for Maine.

Bec notched the first hit of the season for the Black bears in the top of the first when he singled towards first base, but it would be the lone hit of the frame for Maine. Though Maine starter Justin Courtney racked up five strikeouts over the first three innings, but the Red Raiders pushed three runs across the plate to take the 3-0 lead after three.

Gabe Holt doubled down the right field line to move John McMillon to third, Cody Farhat singled up the left side to drive in both Holt and McMillon. Farhat then scored three batters later on another Texas Tech double.

Vicens led off the top of the fifth with a single to right field, and then made it to third after a Colin Ridley walk and a sacrifice bunt by Caleb Kerbs. Pena then drove Vicens in on a ball to second. Texas Tech added another run when Josh Jung hit an opposite field home run to right field.

The Black Bears didn't go quietly though, as Pena walked to start the eighth inning, took second on a wild pitch before scoring two batters later on a fielder's choice hit by Sardinas to the shortstop.

Courtney (0-1) yielded six hits in four innings of work, with Texas Tech getting the three earned runs in the bottom of the third. He had six strikeouts on the day. For the Red Raiders, Davis Martin (1-0) went fiving innings, giving up three hits and one earned run while striking out four. Dane Haveman got the save for Texas Tech.

Matt Geoffrion went three innings in relief for Maine, striking out three, while Connor Johnson had one strikeout in one inning of relief.

The Black Bears and Red Raiders will play a double header tomorrow – with the first game set for 1 p.m. – before closing out the series with a single game on Sunday afternoon.

Overall, I thought this was a pretty good showing for a team that is always stuck inside until the first pitch. Tech is a legitimate national contender. The one glaring take away for me, is 0 errors. All of Tech's runs were earned, in all senses of the word. Despite only 4 hits, Maine got some good swings on the ball. A bunch of long , loud outs.
Pitching was really good. A couple hit batters and 3 walks , which is a low number of BB compared to years past in the opening weekend. Courtney and Geoffrion both were consistently around 91 MPH and Johnson was at 85 and cruised thru his inning.
The hitting will come around as they see more and more live pitching outside. I am even more optimistic now than I was before about this team winning the AE. With an effort like this against a juggernaut, they will be a tough out against most of the rest of their schedule. Excited to see if #2 and #3 in the rotation can come out today and have similar outings. That obviously will be important going forward but yesterday was a great start despite the final score.
For the Box Score junkies like me, there is an error in their reporting. Maine pitchers ( geoffrion I believe) actually had 1 INtentional BB so his walk total should be 1 and not 2. Splitting hairs perhaps, but a measure of a guys effectiveness starts in the BB column so I wanted to get that out there.

No. 3 Texas Tech Tops Baseball In Final Game Of Weekend Series

LUBBOCK, Texas – The University of Maine baseball team found itself in an early hole against No. 3 Texas Tech and plated six runs in the second inning before ultimately falling, 21-6, on Sunday afternoon at Rip Griffin Stadium.

The Black Bears (0-4) collected six hits and had at least one runner on base in the first seven innings but it wasn't enough to match the 17 hits of the Red Raiders (4-0).

Jeremy Pena led off with a single to left field but the Red Raiders immediately turned a 4-6-3 double play to quell the early threat.

Texas Tech in turn got a leadoff triple from Gabe Holt and then he was able to cross the plate on an errant relay throw to third, giving the Red Raiders a 1-0 lead. A nine run second for the hosts staked the Red Raiders to a 10-0 lead after two innings. Beginning with Michael Davis' leadoff double to center and ending with Holt's single to right field, the Red Raiders notched seven total hits in the bottom half of the inning.

The Black Bears had a solid top of the third though, plating six runs in response.

With one out in the top of the third, Caleb Kerbs doubled down the left field line and then scored when a Kevin Doody hit to the shortstop resulted in a throwing error. Three batters later, Doody himself scored when Pena reached on a fielder's choice and Cody Pasic and Christopher Bec earned back-to-back walks. Colin Ridley's double to left center scored both Pasic and Pena. Two batters later, a single from Jonathan Bennett allowed Bec and Ridley.

Texas Tech added a run in the bottom half of the inning to make it 11-6 and then after a scoreless fifth for both squads, Clay Koelzer knocked a triple to center to score Brian Klein for the Red Raiders. Three runs in the bottom of the seventh and six runs on four in the bottom of the eighth put Maine in an 21-6 hole heading into the top of the ninth.

Pena finished with two hits for Maine while scoring one run. John Arel threw four innings of relief for Maine, giving up two hits and two earned runs, while Connor Johnson, Peter Kemble and Ben Terwilliger all made appearances.

Maine will travel to Emerson, Ga. next weekend for a four-game series with Ohio University.
