FISHKILL – The Marist baseball team split a Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference doubleheader against Siena at Dutchess Stadium on Monday. The Red Foxes earned a 1-0 victory in the seven-inning first game, but the Saints bounced back for an 8-4 win in the nine-inning second game.

Freshman third baseman Ben Moller (Warrington, Pa.) led Marist offensively by going 3-for-6 with two RBIs on the day.

Game One

The game was scoreless until the bottom of the sixth. With two outs and no one on, sophomore center fielder Graham McIntire (Concord, N.H.) reached on an infield single, and advanced to second when junior catcher Mark Swertfager (Katonah, N.Y.) drew a walk. McQuail then singled on a fly ball into the gap in right-center to bring home McIntire with the only run of the game.

Three Marist pitchers combined on a four-hitter. Freshman right-hander Scott Boches (Feasterville, Pa.) went the first 4.1 innings, and allowed two hits with one strikeout. With Siena having runners on first and second with one out in the fifth, junior right-hander Evan Davis (Little Falls, N.Y.) relieved Boches and pitched out of the jam.

Freshman right-hander Ryan Thomas (Ringoes, N.J.) came in for Marist with runners at the corners and one out in the top of the sixth. The Saints tried a double steal, but McQuail threw out lead runner John Rooney at the plate to preserve the scoreless tie. Thomas then struck out second baseman Mike Allen on a 3-2 pitch to end the inning. He then pitched out of a first-and-second with one out jam in the seventh to earn his first collegiate win, which ran his record to 1-3.

Siena starter Ed Lewicki absorbed the tough-luck loss. Lewicki (1-4) pitched a complete game, allowed five hits, and struck out two. Andres Ortiz led the Saints offensively by going 2-for-3.

Game Two

The game was scoreless through the first three innings. In that time, Marist junior left-hander Rich Vrana (Lindenhurst, N.Y.) allowed just one hit and struck out five. Vrana struck out the side in the third.

Siena broke through with a run in the fourth, another in the fifth and then five in the sixth. In the sixth, Siena sent 10 hitters to the plate and had just three hits, but the Saints were hit by two pitches and drew two walks.  

The Saints maintained their 7-0 lead until the bottom of the eighth, when the Red Foxes sent nine hitters to the plate and scored four runs on five hits, which included a two-run single by Moller, an RBI single by senior right fielder Pat Welsh (Millersville, Pa.) and a sacrifice fly by senior left fielder by Zachary Passerelle (Sparta, N.J.). However, Siena added an insurance run in the ninth to make the final margin 8-4.

Vrana (0-5), who had five strikeouts in 5.1, took the loss. Siena starter Bryan Goossens, who went the first 7.1, earned the win and improved to 1-3. Kyano Cummings, who entered with the tying run at the plate with one out in the eighth, retired all five hitters he faced for his first save of the season.

Siena was again led offensively by Ortiz, who went 3-for-5 with two RBIs and a run scored. Catcher Dave Hoffmann went 2-for-3 with three RBIs, including a two-run double in the Saints’ five-run sixth. For Marist, Moller was 2-for-4 with two RBIs.

Siena captured the opening game of the series on Saturday, and took two out of three in the series. The Saints are now 5-18 overall and 5-1 in the MAAC. Marist fell to 7-16 overall and 1-5 in MAAC play.
