BRUNSWICK, Maine -- Colby Baseball wrapped up its season series against NESCAC rival Bowdoin College on Sunday. The Mules dropped all three games.

In game one, Bowdoin stuck first, scoring one run in the top of the first inning and seven in the second. The difference proved to much to overcome and the Mules lost 14-1. Pitcher Patrick Ariola (1-2) was credited with the loss.

Colby's bats came alive in the second game. William Wessman and Dylan Nastri hit back to back RBI doubles in the first inning to give the Mules and early lead. Colby pitcher Frank Driscoll through five strong innings, giving up two runs on four hits and striking out five. The game was tied going into the sixth inning before Bowdoin first baseman Jack Willhoite hit a two-run home run to put the Polar Bears ahead. Colby got one run back on Jackson Ward's RBI single in the bottom half of the inning but could not erase the deficit, and lost 4-3. Matt Mitchell led the team with three hits, a run, and a walk, and the Mules totaled 15 hits. Relief pitcher William Wessman (0-1) took the loss.

Colby again scored first in game three, when Matt Mitchell came across on a throwing error by Bowdoin's pitcher. The Mules could not generate any more runs, though, and lost to the Polar Bears 9-1. Pitcher Patrick Carbone (1-2) took the loss.
