How It Happened

• Game two was a shoot out from the start. York opened the scoring with a two-run homer from Seth Brosius to get the Green and White on the board. Marymount got one of those runs back on a Kaden Darrow RBI ground out.

• York added a run in the second and four more in the fourth as York took a 7-1 lead. Jack Barry launched a solo homer to start the scoring in the third. Sophomore Bailey Doan had a two run single and Grant Oberholtzer had an RBI fielder's choice for York's fourth run of the frame.

• The Spartans made it 8-1 when Christian Bilan scored on a wild pitch in the fourth. Marymount answered with a pair of runs in the fourth and one more in the fifth to cut York's lead to 8-4.

• York got a trio of runs in the sixth, pushing the lead to 11-4. The Green and White added three more in the seventh. Barry drew a lead off walk to plate a run and Rob Acierno then stroked a two-run single up the middle as York's lead grew to 15-4.

• The Saints closed the gap with a four run seventh inning. After a quiet eighth inning, York got an RBI single from Barry to give York a 15-8 lead. The Saints made it interesting in the ninth with four runs but their deficit would prove to be too large as York held on for the sweep.

Notes:

The Spartans are now 6-4 all-time against the Saints as CAC opponents … that conference affiliation will change next year as the Saints are leaving the CAC for a new mid-Atlantic based conference … York's five game win streak is their longest streak of the season … York has scored double figures in runs in four of the five wins during the streak.

 

Up Next:

The Spartans return to action on Sunday afternoon when they host Penn State Harrisburg in a Capital Athletic Conference contest. First pitch is slated for 1:00 pm at Jaquet Field.
