RHODE ISLAND COLLEGE AND THOMAS SPLIT DH

Providence, RIóRhode Island College and Thomas College split a doubleheader in collegiate baseball action on Sunday afternoon. Thomas took game one, 10-2, and the Anchormen won the second contest, 6-5. RIC's record is now 11-11, while the Terriers are 7-16 on the season.

 

Thomas plated five runs in the first two innings of game one and never looked back. Senior pitcher Jevon Owens (Clinton, ME) went the distance, striking out five and allowing no earned runs over seven innings of work to improve his record to 2-3. Six Terriers had multiple hit games, led by freshman designated hitter Brandon Connors (Rochester, NH) who went 3-4 with a double, two runs scored and an RBI. Freshman third baseman Jim Pierce (Dorchester, MA) went 2-5 with two runs scored, three RBI and a home run. RIC junior starting pitcher Matt Brannon (Cranston, RI) took the loss, falling to 2-4 on the year.

 

Things looked bleak for the Anchormen in game two as they trailed 5-3 heading into the last of the sixth. Junior centerfielder Glenn Dusablon's (North Smithfield, RI) RBI single capped a three-run comeback to give RIC the win. Dusablon went 2-4 with two RBI and made a diving, over-the-shoulder catch for the last out to preserve the win. Sophomore pitcher Wade Briggs (Woonsocket, RI) picked up his second win (2-1) of the season in relief of starter freshman Caleb Barber (Mystic, CT).

 

In upcoming action, RIC will host UMass-Dartmouth tomorrow afternoon at 3:30 p.m.
