BucBall Splits with Johnson & Wales; Earn Second Win of Season

BUZZARDS BAY, Mass – The Buccaneer baseball team capped off a six game in six days run of games with a double header against Johnson & Wales on Saturday afternoon on Taylor's Point. While game one did not go the way the Bucs wanted it to, falling 14-6, they bounced back in game two, winning 2-0.


Game One

How It Happened

JWU scored two or more runs in five of the seven innings in game one of the double header. Opening the scoring in the top of the first with two runs on an Armani Henderson (Johnston, R.I.) double that plated two runs.

The second inning was fruitful for both teams, the Wildcats scoring three runs, two on a Retsyn Ooton (Pawtucket, R.I.) single. Maritime scored two runs in the bottom of the inning on back-to-back hit by pitches with the bases loaded, RBI credited to Michael Doyle (Boston, Mass) and Ben Paine (Dartmouth, Mass).

Johnson & Wales continued their scoring in to the third adding three more runs to take an 8-2 lead which they extended to 11-2 two innings later, in the fifth, on an Ooton bases clearing double which scored three runs.

The fifth, sixth and seventh for Maritime were productive, scoring one in the fifth on an infield hit, one in the sixth on a fielding error and one in the seventh on a wild pitch. During that time, however, the Wildcats added three runs in the top of the seventh inning which sealed their 14-6 game one win over the Bucs.
