Baseball Sweeps Sciences on Senior Day 9-8, 6-5

POMONA, NY (April 26, 2013)

The men's baseball team swept a double header yesterday evening at Provident Bank Park by scores of 9-8 and 6-5 on senior night at Provident Bank Park.  The Warriors improved their conference record to 8-11 on the season with the wins.

Game 1:
Nyack would jump out to an early lead in the first inning of game 1, with rbi singles from Brent James, Phil Erwin and a 2-out, 2 rbi single off the bat of Eric Roe.

Cole Tobin would make it a 5-1 Nyack lead with a solo homer to right field in the bottom of the 3rd inning.  James and John Kennedy would add rbi singles over the next two frames to give Nyack a 7-1 advantage after 6 innings of play.

USciences would add 7 runs over the next two frames to take a 8-7 lead of the contest heading into the bottom of the 9th.  Cole Tobin would double in Kris Chatman to knot the game at 9-9.  The game would remain tied until the bottom of the 12th when Jan-Pi Crespo started the 1-out rally with a line single to center field.  Roe would successfully execute a hit and run on the next pitch to move Crespo to third base with one out.  Senior TJ Briggs would walk the Warriors off in winning fashion after successfully pushing a bunt to the right side of the infield to score Jan-Pierre Crespo.

Senior Jon Colon picks up the win for Nyack after pitching a scoreless 12th inning.  Erik Puterio got the start for Nyack, going 7.1 innings on a senior day start.  Michael Teti would bridge the gap to get to Colon, pitching 3 innings of scoreless relief striking out 1.

Kennedy, Chatman, and Tobin would add 2 hits a piece and James, Crespo and Roe would also add 3 hits.


Game 2:

Nyack would get ahead early in game two with sac flies from Cole Tobin in the first inning and TJ Briggs in the 2nd to lead 2-0.  UScience would add a run to make the score 2-1, but Eric Roe would answer with an rbi single in the bottom of the 4th to make it a 3-1 lead.  Sciences would cut the score to 3-2, but Nyack would regain a 5-2 advantage: capitalizing on a USP error and another single from Roe.  Nyack would extend their lead to 6-2 with a sac fly from Brent James.

Sciences would rally to make the score 6-5 heading into the top of the 9th, but Tony Campbell would come in to nail down another save and give Nyack the win.

Kennedy, Tobin, and James would each add 2 hits in the contest and Eric Roe would collect 3 hits and 2 rbi.

Matthias Westfall picks up the victory, pitching 7.1 innings and striking out 5 batters.
