Baseball falls on road to Lions to split regular-season series

HARRISBURG, Pa. – The Marymount (Va.) University baseball team suffered a loss to Penn State University-Harrisburg on Wednesday afternoon, 8-3, in a Capital Athletic Conference matchup to split the regular-season series.  

Junior Collin Bazemore, who was fresh off a complete game in his last start on the mound, got the start on the bump for the Saints. However, he would only last four and two-thirds innings for the afternoon, as the Lions found the board early on against MU. 

The Saints started off strong in the top of the first inning where senior Brandon Orbe knocked a two-run homer, his second of the season, scoring fellow senior Brandon Savage. However, the Lions would strike back with authority in the second inning, which resulted in four runs. 

The Lions extended their lead by one in the third inning with a home run courtesy of Zachary Koroneous, and then again in the fifth inning with another two runs. 

The Saints would only add on one more run in the top of the sixth coming from a sacrifice fly by Orbe to score senior Lorenzo Calderon

David Klein and the Lions would tack on an additional run in the sixth inning as well, as David Klein singled to score Denniston. 

The crew returns to action again this weekend, Saturday, April 1, travelling to St. Mary's College of Maryland for a CAC doubleheader. First pitch is set for 12 p.m.
