Baseball drops two games

WATERVILLE, Maine -- The Colby College baseball team had a 10-4 advantage in hits, but the lone error of the game cost the Mules in a 9-4 setback to Bates College in NESCAC East play Sunday at the Colby Baseball/Softball Complex.

Bates also won the second game by a 12-0 score in improving to 7-5 overall and 3-0 in the league. Colby dropped to 3-10 and 0-3 in the conference.

The Mules led 4-1 heading into the bottom of the fourth inning of the opener, but John Dinucci got on by error to start the inning. After a walk to Brendon Canavan, Daniel Trulli reached on a fielder's choice as Dinucci moved to third and Canavan was out at second.

Colby would have had the final out of the fourth inning on a ground out by Kyle Carter, but instead Dinucci scored from third and Trulli advanced to second. After back-to-back walks loaded the bases, Asher MacDonald walked to drive in one run and Will Sylvia also walked to bring in the third run. After the second pitching change of the inning, Brendan Fox smacked a bases clearing double for a 7-4 lead.

In the Bobcat fifth inning, MacDonald had an RBI single to bring in Canavan. Jack Arend added an RBI walk for the other run.

The Mules scored twice in the top of the first inning. Matt Treveloni and Jackson Ward had back-to-back singles. Ryder Arsenault got on by fielder's choice and Treveloni moved to third. Matt Garcia (pictured) doubled to bring in Treveloni and Arsenault.

Ryan McCarthy led off the Bates first by being hit by a pitch. After an out, Fox and John Dinuncci had back-to-back walks to load the bases. Canavan followed up with a sacrifice fly to right field to bring in McCarthy. Colby starter Bobby Forese got the final out on a fly ball to center field to get out of the inning.

Colby's other two runs came in the fourth after a lead off double by Arsenault and a single by Garcia. Andrew Della Volpe had a sacrifice fly to right field to plate Arsenault. Keenan Iuliano singled to bring in Garcia with the other run.

Treveloni had three hits and one run, while Garcia had two hits and drove in two runs. Arsenault scored twice and had two hits. Matt Mitchell had one hit and a walk.

Forese had a unique pitching line, allowing no hits in 3.2 innings and just the one earned run. He also had one strikeout and six walks. Andrew Sterup, Colby's fifth pitcher on the day, allowed just one hit in 1.1 innings.

Bates scored a lone run in the first inning of the nightcap, but neither team managed another score until the Bobcats scored two in the fifth of the nine inning game.

Connor Bruen, Treveloni, Arsenault, and Tyler Mulberry had hits for Colby.
