First-Inning Run Enough as Baseball Drops 1-0 Game Two to CACC Regular Season Champion Felician in Season Finale

First-Inning Run Enough as Baseball Drops 1-0 Game Two to CACC Regular Season Champion Felician in Season Finale

LYNDHURST, N.J. – Hiro Mizutani limited Central Atlantic Collegiate Conference (CACC) regular season champion Felician to just a first-inning run on three hits in a complete game effort in game two, but the USciences offense could not provide him run support in a 1-0 loss in the Devils' season-finale on Wednesday. 

The Golden Falcons scored the first eight runs in an 8-3 game one victory. 

Back-to-back one-out walks and a double led to the only run of game two. 

After left fielder Brian Magee ended the frame by throwing a runner out at the plate, Mizutani allowed just one other runner to reach scoring position as he worked three 1-2-3 innings. He struck out four on the afternoon, against two walks. 

The University of the Sciences offense managed to advance a runner into scoring position in both the second and third but could not capitalize, leaving four runners on base compared to Felician's one. 

Wednesday marked the finals games for seniors Nick Amicon, Andrew Szpindor, Joseph Jachimiak and Matt Guyger

Amicon reached base three times in game one with two hits and a walk, leading to two runs scored, and he also added a hit in the nightcap to finish the afternoon with 127 for his career, seventh in program history. 

Szpindor started game one and struck out four in his five innings. 

Jachimiak walked three times on the afternoon, while Guyger singled in game one. 

University of the Sciences was only outhit by one, 13-12, in the 8-3 game one loss, but the Devils left 11 on base.  

Magee finished 3-for-4 with two RBI for his second career three-hit game, while Nate Steele went 3-for-5 for his second three-hit game of the year.

Alec Sherk tied a season-high with three scoreless innings of relief, allowing just one hit, to extend his scoreless innings streak to seven.
