Baseball Swept in Season Finale by Vermont
GAME 1: Vermont 3, UMBC 0
Ed Bach pitched a decent game allowing three runs on five hits with five strikeouts, but Vermont completely shut down UMBC’s hitting as they recorded just four hits and no runs. And no matter how good your pitching is, when you don’t score you can’t win.
GAME 2: Vermont 5, UMBC 1
UMBC got an early lead as Brad Brainer crossed the plate in the top of the first inning, but Kevin Clark gave up five runs off seven hits for the eventual loss. The hitting was still bad for UMBC. They only recorded three hits and two of them came in the first inning.
Game 3: Vermont 12, UMBC 0
Austin Drewyer got shelled in game three. He gave up 11 runs off 12 hits in five innings of work. But once again it does not matter what your pitching does, or how bad they play, if the team cannot get runs they cannot win. UMBC got six hits but was unable to capitalize on any of chances as they were shutout.
Game 4: Vermont 7, UMBC 4
After a rain delay on sunday the game was rescheduled to Monday and the team played much better than the previous three outings. Brad Brainer and Rich Conlon both recorded multi-hit games while UMBC recorded four runs off eight hits. But the pitching still needs work. Travis Pearson gave up five runs and his help in Steve Miller gave up two more in the loss.
