ARLINGTON, Va. - The Marymount baseball team closed out its final home game of the 2018 campaign on Tuesday afternoon, dropping a 22-3 nine-inning game to Stevenson University in a non-conference matchup at Bishop O'Connell High School.
Eight different Saints registered a hit in the game with the first coming in the first at-bat in the bottom of the first inning when junior Conner Hall launched a home run over the left-field fence to draw the score even at 1-1.
However, in a game that the Mustangs scored in seven of the nine innings, Stevenson slowly built up a lead until a four-run sixth inning opened up the spread. Two runs scored for the Saints over that gap of time, seeing freshman Jake Mellor score junior Nick Smutko in the third and a wild pitch bring freshman James DiGiulian home in the sixth.
The eighth inning was all Stevenson, crossing 12 runs to seal up the game. With senior Collin Bazemore coming in for the final relief on the mound, he went into quick work, closing out the final 1.2 innings for no runs and just one hit while striking out one.
In his second collegiate start, freshman Drew Mead went four innings for two strikeouts and four runs.
The team rounds out the season on Wednesday, May 2 on the road at Lynchburg College. Start time is set for 4 p.m.
