Panther Baseball rallies to defeat Daniel Webster

NASHUA, N.H. - Plymouth State University rallied from a 5-2 deficit Thursday afternoon and pulled out a 10-6 victory over Daniel Webster College in a non-conference baseball game.

PSU started its comeback in the fifth inning when freshman Trevor Hall (New Boston, N.H.) tripled and scored on a single by junior Derek Guimond (Lewiston, Maine).  The Panthers took the lead with three runs in the seventh, one run coming home on a sacrifice fly by senior Michael Campo (Londonderry, N.H.), one scoring on a Daniel Webster error, and the third on an RBI single by freshman Dylan Mullin (Derry, N.H.), one of his three hits in the game.

Plymouth State added three more runs in the eighth inning. Senior Matt Gabellieri (Lincoln, R.I.) drove in two runs with a single, then came around to score on a double by freshman Steve Campo (Londonderry, N.H.). The Panthers added an insurance run in the ninth when freshman Jared Barrows (Marshfield, Mass.) reached base with his third single of the day, stole second, and scored on freshman Joe Annese's (Winchester, Mass.) third hit of the afternoon.  Annese also hit his second home run of the season, a solo shot in the first inning.

Freshman Jamie Aceto (Cumberland, R.I.), Guimond and Gabellieri each pitched three innings for the Panthers. Guimond registered the win in relief to improve to 2-1, and Gabellieri picked up his second save.

PSU, 8-28, completes the season Saturday with a Little East Conference doubleheader against Western Connecticut at Panther Park (12:00 p.m.).  Daniel Webster completes its season with a 4-20 record.
