RADNOR, Pa. - The Saints baseball team traveled to Cabrini on Saturday to finish out a three-game conference set, looking to get back on the winning side.
Despite two well-played affairs, Marymount dropped both ends of the twin bill to fall to 17-9 overall, 0-6 in conference play.
Cabrini took the early lead in the first game of the day, pushing across two in the bottom of the second inning. The Saints went on to answer in the very next frame. Jordan Dickson led off the inning with a walk, quickly advancing to second on a passed ball. After a single from Alex Lemery to put a pair of Saints at first and third, Ryo Fabre put down a sacrifice bunt to put two runners in scoring position with just one away. Senior Ryan Lee then knocked a two-RBI single to tie up the contest and give Marymount some life.
After Lee stole second and subsequently moved to third via a passed ball, Jimmy Baker knocked a single to center to give the Saints the lead and round out the scoring in the frame.
Cabrini knocked a solo home run in the bottom of the third to tie up the contest, then took the lead in the bottom of the fourth, 4-3, with strong pitching the rest of the way keeping the score there.
Marymount kicked off the second game of the day on a hot note, with Lemery and Dickson each singling in the first two at-bats. After a walk from Lee, the Saints looked to make a quick splash with bases loaded and no one out.
Cabrini induced a double play, but Lemery was able to come across for the first run of the game, with Baker knocking an RBI single to give Marymount an early 2-0 lead.
The Cavaliers pushed one across in the bottom of the third to cut Marymount's lead in half. Freshman Spencer Robson pushed momentum back to the Saints' side in the next frame, though, knocking a three-run blast to push Marymount ahead, 5-1.
Cabrini garnered seven total runs in the bottom of the fourth to retake the lead, but the Saints kept applying offensive pressure in the next frame. After Dickson reached on a hit-by-pitch, senior Bryce Smith knocked a two-run homer to cut into the Cavaliers' lead.
Marymount struggled down the stretch to get anything going offensively, ultimately falling in the second game by a final score of 12-7
Ryan Maylie was 2-4 in the second game with a double. Robson notched three RBI in the contest on the back of his home run in the fourth.
