Baseball Drops Two at C.W. Post

BROOKVILLE, N.Y. - Host C.W. Post swept both ends of a baseball doubleheader with Southern New Hampshire University Saturday afternoon, taking the first game 3-1 and posting a 3-0 win in the nightcap.  The Pioneers improved to 2-11 overall, while the Penmen slip to 1-8.

In the first game, SNHU jumped out to a 1-0 lead in the first inning.  Chris O'Neil (Chelmsford, MA) led off the game with a double, then advanced to third on a groundout by Tim Rines (Merrimack, NH).  O'Neil would score on a passed ball.  C.W. Post then would score three times in the bottom of the second to close out the scoring.

O'Neil had two of SNHU's three hits in the opener, while Eric Pelletier (Beverly, MA) had the other.  Ryan Quinn (Lebanon, CT) started for SNHU and allowed just five hits, not allowing a hit after C.W. Post's rally in the second.  Bobby Kay earned the win on the mound for the Pioneers.

In game two, C.W. Post took a 1-0 lead in the bottom of the second.  Southern New Hampshire threatened in both the fourth and fifth innings, placing runners on first and third with one out in both frames, however, both rallies were snuffed out.  The Pioneers would then score two more times in the bottom of the sixth.

SNHU had five hits in the nightcap, including Curtis Burke's (Bristol, RI) first collegiate hit.  Brad Monroe (Hampton Falls, NH) took the loss on the mound for the Penmen.
