Baseball One Run Short Against Cabrini

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Marymount University baseball came up one run short Friday afternoon in conference play against Cabrini University. A steady performance by the Saints was unable to match the Cavaliers performance after they had a strong start, which resulted in a 5-4 decision.

Cabrini came out of the dugout strong with two runs in the top of the first inning after a homer. The Saints responded with a run of their own after Ryan Lee hit a single to left field which brought Alex Lemery home.

Marymount prevented the Cavaliers from scoring in the second inning with Drew Mead on the mound where he struck out two batters and picked up a ground ball for the third out. At the bottom of the second Ryan Maylie stepped up to the plate with one out on the board and hit a homer, which tied the score 2-2. The Saints gained the lead in the third inning after a homer to center field by Lemery. However, the Cavaliers regained their footing in the fourth inning and registered three runs before the Saints scored in the bottom of the seventh inning. The Saints tried to retake the lead but the game ended at the bottom of the seventh after a double play by the Cavaliers.

Lemery led the Saints with two RBI and two runs. Lee and Maylie registered the only other two RBI for the Saints while Maylie and David Kurzrock added the two other runs. Mead started on the mound for the Saints and pitched four innings where he registered four strikeouts. Stephen Gerade added four strikeouts in 1.2 innings of work while Coleman Grehawick added five strikeouts in 3.1 innings of work.
