Eastern Connecticut Pours It On RIC, 12-0

Game Two is rained out

Providence, RI—Eastern Connecticut junior starting pitcher Ryan DiPietro (Kensington, RI) held the Rhode Island College batters hitless through six innings before rain ended the game just as the top of the seventh was to begin with the Warriors earning a 12-0 victory.  

 

The Warriors needed just two innings to score their runs, putting five runs on the board in the top of the fourth and seven more in the top of the fifth. Junior third baseman Zach Mehrbach (Lyme, NH) led the way at the plate by going 2-for-3 with a run scored and three RBI. Sophomore center fielder Randy Re (Danbury, CT) also contributed to the Warrior cause by going 2-for-4 with a run scored, two RBI and a home run in the top of the fifth inning. DiPietro improved his record to 6-1 on the season as he struck out 11 of the 20 Anchormen he faced. 

 

Senior Day wasn’t kind to RIC starting pitcher James Milano (Johnston, RI) as he went just 4.1 innings, giving up eight hits and seven runs. However, only three of his runs were earned. The loss drops Milano’s record to 1-5 on the season.

 

Game two of the scheduled doubleheader was rained out and will be played on Monday, May 2 at 3:30 pm.

 

In upcoming action, RIC will play a doubleheader at Thomas College tomorrow, Sunday, May 1 at Noon.
