ASTON, Pa. - The Saints took down the Knights of Neumann University in a Thursday, conference-series opener.
Coming out on the winning side by a final score of 8-3, Marymount makes their way back to .500 baseball in the conference at 8-8, also clinching a playoff spot as at least the #4 seed in the upcoming AEC playoffs.
- Senior lefty Drew Mead threw a gem, pitching a complete game and notching the win. He went 9.0 innings allowing just three earned runs while striking out three to improve to 6-3 on the season.
- Ryan Maylie went 2-for-5 at the plate with a double. The senior backstop collected a run and an RBI.
- Ryan Lee also put together a 2-for-5 performance at the dish with a double out of the DH spot. The senior notched two runs and an RBI.
- Robby Cable knocked two doubles on the day, adding an RBI.
- Jimmy Baker was 2-for-4 with a triple, collecting both a run and an RBI.
How It Happened
- After Neumann put a pair of runs on the board in the bottom of the second, Baker led off the top of the third with a double and Alex Lemery knocked him in later in the inning via a sacrifice fly. In the next at-bat, Cable doubled down the left field line to score Jordan Dickson, who reached earlier in the frame.
- Maylie and Lee knocked back-to-back doubles to lead off the top of the fourth to keep momentum in the Marymount dugout. Lee was credited with the RBI. Dickson knocked an RBI single later in the same inning, scoring David Kurzrock.
- Mead worked around a leadoff double from the Knights in the bottom of the ninth to seal the win and put Marymount in the winning column yet again.
- Marymount will hit their own turf this Saturday to finish out the regular season, hosting Neumann in doubleheader fashion with first pitch scheduled for 3:00 PM. It will also be senior day for the Saints.
