Saints Drop Series Opener with Gwynedd-Mercy

GWYNEDD VALLEY, Pa. - The Marymount baseball team dropped the opening game of their three-game set with Gwynedd Mercy in a tightly contested duel on the mound. 

With the loss, the Saints fall to 20-11 on the year, 3-7 in AEC play. 

Notables

  • Bryce Smith and and Ryan Lee each knocked a pair of hits, with Lee scoring a run on the day.

How It Happened

  • The Saints put themselves on the board first in the game, pushing across a run in the top of the second. Bryce Smith led off the inning with a single, and with next two Saints going down in order, they needed to spark a rally. After a Maylie single, Baker punched a single to left to score Smith easily and give Marymount the early 1-0 lead. 
  • With one away in the top of the sixth, Lee drove a double down the right field line. Maylie quickly took advantage of a pitch over the plate and knocked Lee in with a single through the right side. 
  • Stephen Gerade fell to 2-1 on the year, but pitched well, throwing 7.1 strong innings and striking out two.
