Plymouth State Baseball falls to Colby

Panthers to host UMB in key LEC games

            GORHAM, Maine – The Plymouth State University baseball team fell to Colby College for the third time this season Friday afternoon, as the Mules scored five runs in the first three innings on the way to a 7-6 non-conference win in a make-up game played at University of Southern Maine.

            The Mules, who took 17-2 and 12-6 wins over Plymouth State in Florida, improved to 16-14 overall. The Panthers fell to 13-19 overall.

            Colby had 11 hits in the game and took advantage of three Panther errors. The Mules had two errors in the game but four Colby pitchers allowed just six hits.

            Devlin McConnell had a double and a single for the Mules and he caught all nine innings. Robb Arndt, Luke Duncklee, and Taro Gold also had two hits for the Mules.

            Freshman Paul Reny had two of the six hits for the Panthers, while senior Ryan McIntosh cracked a double.

            The Mules had the lead for good after scoring four runs in the bottom of the second inning. They added lone runs in the third, fifth, and seventh innings. The Panthers got as close as 6-5 after scoring a lone run in the top of the seventh inning, but the Mules answered back in the bottom of the seventh with their final run.

            PSU returns to Little East Conference action Saturday, hosting the University of Massachusetts Boston in a 12 noon twin bill.
