Eric Rossi hit an RBI-double against Misericordia on Saturday.

DALLAS, Pa.--Eastern Baseball shuffled its lineup in Saturday's game against Misericordia University, but the Eagles only produced four hits in the 5-2 loss to the Cougars.

Eastern's new No. 2-5 hitters, Joe Grato, Ryan McMenamin, Andrew Check and Eric Rossi, each tallied a base knock, but the Eagles were not able to put hits together for scoring chances in the first five innings.

The Cougars (8-6, 5-2 Freedom) scored  two runs in the second and third innings and another in the bottom of the fourth to build a 5-0 lead.

The Eagles rallied with two outs in the top of the sixth. Back-to-back RBI-hits by Andrew Check and Eric Rossi forced the Cougars to go to the bullpen. The Eagles left the bases loaded to end the inning and were unable to generate more chances in the seventh.

Misericordia's starting pitcher Tim Burek went 5 and two thirds innings to pick up the win, and Corey Lee earned the save  with a perfect seventh.

Korey McCormack kept the high powered Cougars from putting together a big inning with five innings of work. It proved not to be enough as the Eastern bats were unable to generate chances. He allowed four earned runs in five innings of work. Ben Melendez worked out of a jam in a scoreless sixth inning in relief.

The second game of Saturday's doubleheader was rained out. The final two games of the series will be played at Eastern on April 5th. The first game will be a seven inning affair with the Cougars as the home team, and the second game will be a nine inning game.
