SCRANTON, Pa. - The Marymount baseball team finished off a season series sweep of the Marywood Pacers on Wednesday, taking two games in shutout fashion.

How It Happened

  • Lemery knocked the second run of the third in via a sacrifice fly. 
  • After a Cable triple to lead off the top of the fifth, Moffett quickly knocked a single to left to give Marymount some insurance.

Game Two

How It Happened

  • After two quiet innings, Cable led off the top of the third with a sharp single. After Moffett moved him over with a perfect sacrifice bunt, Dickson drove the ball up the middle, scoring Cable with ease.
