GAME 1: Fairfield 7, UMBC, 2

Ed Bach is off to a very slow start this year. His first two years at UMBC he attracted pro scouts every time he stepped on the mound but that Ed Bach hasn’t shown up this year. He gave up five runs off eight hits in six innings with four strikeouts. Granted non of the five runs were earned but he was still pinned with his fifth loss this year.

Travis Pearson didn’t have much more success in relief. In three innings he allowed four hits with two runs (both earned) and no strikeouts.

The only two runs for UMBC came in the fourth inning with Tom Meaney homered to center field to also score Wink Nolan.

GAME 2: Fairfield 6, UMBC 4

The team scored twice as many runs in the second game of the double header but the pitching was still and issue. Kevin Clark far from meet the performance in his last outing which was a shutout but but this time in 4.1 innings he gave up eight hits, though just two runs (both earned). Three pitchers came out in relief. Steve Miller pitched 0.2 innings with two runs to finish the inning. Michael Pesci came in for one out but Ryan Morse was the one who was given the loss after giving up two runs off six hits in 2.2 innings.

Brad Brainer (2-4) and Justin Lambron (3-4) each scored two runs with Wink Nolan getting two of the RBI’s, but the two eighth inning runs by Fairfield were the difference for the UMBC loss.
