Baseball Splits Conference Doubleheader with Worcester on the Road

WORCESTER, Mass – Saturday, the Buccaneers traveled to Worcester State to take on the Lancers in the first two games of the three-game MASCAC weekend series. It took nine innings in game one but the Bucs pulled out the 6-5 win and fell in game two 8-4.

 

Game One

How It Happened

Maritime struck first in game one on a home run by Jackson Simone (Seattle, Wash) in the top of the first innings.

The Buccaneers held on to their 1-0 lead in to the fourth inning where they extended the lead to 2-0 on a Dylan Sullo (Acushnet, Mass) double, scoring Simone. In the bottom of the frame, Worcester cut the Maritime lead in half on a double, plating a run.

The Lancers tied the game and then took the lead, 4-2, in the bottom of the fifth scoring two runs on a sacrifice fly to right field and another on a Maritime miscue.

In the bottom of the sixth, Worcester extended their lead to three, scoring on a single to centerfield.

Down 5-2, the Buccaneers needed a big inning in the seventh and they got just that. Angus McNeil (Middleton, Mass) hit a three-run blast to right field, scoring Sullo and AJ Luciano (Lynn, Mass) in the process to tie the game at 5-5.

With the Lancers unable to score in the bottom of the inning, the fans got some free baseball as the game went in to extras. Neither team scored in the eighth inning but, in the ninth, the Buccaneers took the lead by way of a passed ball, scoring Luciano. Up 6-5, Maritime shut down Worcester in the bottom of the ninth, taking game one by a score of 6-5.
