Bowdoin too much for Plymouth State Baseball

(Game 1 Box) (Game 2 Box)

            WINTER HAVEN, Fla. – The Bowdoin College baseball team swept Plymouth State University in a doubleheader on Thursday afternoon, taking out the Panthers by scores of 11-3 and 5-1. The Polar Bears are 11-3 so far this spring while the struggling Panthers are 0-8.

            Brendan Garner and Brett Gorman delivered the big blows for the Polar Bears as both swatted three-run home runs in the game. That proved to be enough for pitcher Joe Pace, who went the distance, allowing eight hits and striking out four. Gorman had three hits in the game to lead Bowdoin.

            Steve Hall earned the win in game two, tossing six innings of one-run ball while striking out nine. Gorman went 2-3 with a triple and two runs scored while Garner reached base twice and scored a pair of runs.

            Both teams will close out their Florida schedules with doubleheaders on Friday, Bowdoin facing St. Olaf and Plymouth State meeting Washington & Jefferson.
