Notes: Larries and the Red Hawks split again in Troy. Looks like St. Lawrence wasn't just a one-year wonder. They had a pretty solid spring trip and have continued that up to New York. For RPI, their early season record was a little inflated, but they're still a very good team.
In game one, frosh John Dreimiller pitched a complete-game four hitter and Matt Muscatiello drove in two runs as RPI triumphed. Justin Bodnar went the distance for the Saints, struck out seven, but allowed three runs on five hits.
Game two was a little different. 13 combined runs, 25 hits and lots of offense. Luke "Cheese" Calzone, one of RPI's aces last year, got roughed up for seven runs on 11 hits; he struck out eight and walked five. The Larries used four pitchers. It was finally Ryan Duff that was able to quiet the RPI bats with 2.2 no-hit innings and five strikeouts. Matt Carrigg and Matt Yaworsky each drove in two runs for the Larries, Carrigg had three hits.
Clarkson, unlike their north country counterpart, is having a rough season. After a wonderful season in 2006, the Knights are crashing and burning. They're now 0-11 after being swept by UR. Their Florida schedule was pretty tough and included Carthage, UW-Stevens Pointer, Wooster and Messiah.
UR took game one on a walk-off single by Devin Shane. Shane drove in two of four UR runs and accounted for two of UR's five hits. Rochester scored the game's final four runs.
Rochester led game two, 8-0, before Clarkson got on the scoreboard. Rich Bittner, Clarkson's starter, allowed 10 runs (four earned) on 10 hits and CU made five errors. Pete McEneaney was knocked around a little, but took the victory. He gave up three runs on seven hits in five innings pitched. UR's Dan Brien and Ed Kahovec combined for five hits and five RBI.
UR and Clarkson play on Sunday at 10:00 am to try and avoid the rain.
