Buccaneer Pitching Lights Out in Sweep of Rams

BUZZARDS BAY, Mass – Saturday afternoon, the Buccaneers hosted Framingham State in a MASCAC doubleheader which was senior day for the four Buccaneer seniors and marks the end of the 2019 season for Maritime. After losing the first game of the three-game series Friday night in Framingham, the Buccaneers took game one of the doubleheader, 1-0, and concluded their 2019 season with a 4-2 win in game two to take the three-game series 2-1 and sweep the doubleheader.

 

Game One

How It Happened

Maritime scored first in game one of the double header when Marley Dembitzki (North Dartmouth, Mass) scored stealing home as a part of a Buccaneer double steal 

Both team's would threaten the rest of the game, including multiple time that the Rams has runners on second and third or bases loaded, as it were in the top of the seventh inning. Thanks to great pitching and defensive play by both teams, the Bucs pulled out the 1-0 win in game one.
