FREDERICKSBURG, Va. - The Marymount University baseball team stepped out of conference play for a single nine-inning game against former CAC-foe University of Mary Washington on Wednesday afternoon, falling 10-6.
The Saints got on the board first in the game, crossing two runs across in the first at-bat, with senior Luke Tyree scoring off a fielding error by the shortstop on senior Michael Wade's hit. Senior Austin Sizemore followed with the second run, scoring Wade on a RBI single to second base. Sizemore has now recorded at least one RBI in the four of the last five games.
In the bottom of the second, the Eagles answered back with two runs of their own on a two-RBI double, but a sacrifice fly by Wade brought around his second RBI of the game in the third inning, bringing home senior Conner Hall. UMW again scored two more in the bottom of the inning to retake the lead before Tyree belted a RBI triple in the fourth to draw the score even when senior Cal Berman crossed home plate, 4-4.
In the fifth inning, the Eagles built up a three-run advantage that wouldn't falter the rest of the way, and added two more in the seventh to take a 9-4 lead.
Through the final two innings, the Saints recovered some of the deficit with a RBI by sophomore James DiGiulian and a RBI single by Hall, but it wasn't enough.
Tyree finished the day with three hits, a walk, a RBI, and a run to lead the offense, while Wade added two RBI and a run.
The Saints return home for another non-conference nine-inning game on Friday, March 22, hosting Maine-Presque Isle at National Youth Baseball Academy. First pitch is set for 1 p.m.
