CORSAIRS CLIP ANCHORMEN IN MID-WEEK LITTLE EAST CONFERENCE CLASH

North Dartmouth, Mass.--Junior right fielder Edward Apice (North Kingstown, RI) picked up two hits, while junior first baseman TJ Lynch (South Kingstown, RI) drove in the only run, as Rhode Island College fell to UMass Dartmouth, 13-1 (7 innings) in a mid-week Little East Conference clash played at Corsairs Field.

 

The Corsairs (11-15, 3-4 LEC) used an eight-run second inning to build a lead they would never relinquish as they cruised past the Anchormen (11-16, 1-6 LEC). UMD tacked on two runs in the third and three more in the fifth to end the game early via the 10-run rule.

A solo homer by Lynch in the third was the only offense RIC could muster in the loss. Lynch went 1-for-3 with a run scored and an RBI, while Apice went 2-for-3.

 

The Anchormenís defense was tagged for seven errors on the day. Sophomore starter Daniel Greaves (Warwick, RI) took the loss (1-2), allowing 10 runs (four earned) on eight hits in 3.0 innings of work.

 

Four Corsairs registered multiple hits on the day, led by junior left fielder Taylor Cacciola (West Greenwich, RI) who went 3-for-5 with a run scored, five RBI and a double. Senior starter Aaron Chouinard (Swansea, MA) picked up the win (2-1), allowing one run on five hits to go along with eight strikeouts in a complete game effort.

 

In upcoming action, Rhode Island College will host Framingham State on Thursday, April 21 (3:30 p.m.).
