HOW IT HAPPENED
- Emerson spread its first two runs within the first and third frames and saw its first run come around as Beattie's double skimmed the left field line before the Lions earned the 2-0 lead in the third when McCahan reached on a miscue at second.
- Curry earned a run back in the home half of the third when Kallinich singled in Dylan Ketterer (2-1).
- Cohen sent a sacrifice fly into center to plate the third Lions run and was followed by Davolio batting an infield RBI single right to Sorrento with the visitors lead bumped to 4-1.
- The Emerson bats stayed quiet over the next several innings, which allowed Curry to cut the Lions advantage in half when Leonard drove a sacrifice fly ball over to left (4-2).
- An error out in center and Beattie's sacrifice fly pushed two more runs across with Emerson now holding a comfortable four-run edge over Curry (6-2).
- In the bottom of the eighth, Curry put runners on first and second on a walk and Cronin's two out single that ensued in Cronin plating as Leonard roped a double into center (6-3).
- The Lions once again got another sacrifice fly RBI from Beattie, who sent Wallace's pitch out to center to cross the seventh run for the visitors (7-3).
- After Spencer Cookson reached on an error by the shortstop to begin the bottom of the ninth, Fox retired the next two Curry batters on strikes before he allowed the final Colonels run to come in on a wild pitch (7-4).
- Emerson begins its last NEWMAC series tomorrow, Friday, April 19 hosting No. 10 Babson at 2:00 p.m.
