Offense Sputters in Sweep
Sophomore Eric Rossi continues to hit the ball with authority for the Eagles. He saw 21 pitches in going 0-for-3 with a walk in the first game, and he had three of Eastern's six hits in the nightcap. All three of his hits were doubles.
The Eagles made it through the first two innings without either team scoring, but the Bulldogs scored three runs in the third to take the lead. The Eagles answered with a run in the top of the fourth, but the league-leading Bulldogs (13-5, 7-0 Freedom) plated six more in the bottom of the inning to break the game open. The Eagles scored a single tally without the benefit of a hit in the sixth inning before the Bulldogs grabbed two back in the bottom of the frame.
Lucas Bremerman took the hill for Eastern in game two. DeSales took the lead in the first on a single, a stolen base and another single. The Bulldogs stretched their lead to 4-0 with three runs after two were out in the bottom of the second inning.
Bremerman allowed only three singles the rest of the way, but DeSales starter David Drinks was able to hold the Eagles to single tallies in the fourth and fifth innings. Rossi doubled to lead off the fourth and scored on an error, and he drove in Brandon Kenish with two outs in the fifth.
The Eagles had the tying run on base in the sixth and to the plate in the seventh, but the Bulldog bullpen was able to keep the Eagles from scratching again.
Eastern returns to action on Wednesday with a home game against the University of Maine-Presque Isle. Eastern (6-10, 2-7 Freedom) returns to action in the league at King's on Friday.Game One Box
