Panther Baseball drops two to Lyndon State

May 2nd, 2004 by Adam

            PLYMOUTH, N.H. – Lyndon State College used strong pitching in the first game and solid hitting in the second contest Sunday afternoon at Panther Park, and swept a non-conference baseball doubleheader from Plymouth State University, 5-1 and 11-3.

            Lyndon State senior Joe Parrotte (St. Albans, Vt.) allowed only three hits and two walks over seven innings in the opener to register the complete-game win (2-3).  He struck out three and lost his shutout in the seventh inning when PSU pushed across an unearned run.

            Freshman Mike Swan (Southington, Conn.) was the hitting star for the Hornets in the opener.  He was 3-for-3 with three RBI, including a double and his first home run of the season.

            The Panthers took a 3-0 lead after two innings of the nightcap, but the Hornets came back with 11 unanswered runs, including three in the fifth inning and six more in the sixth.  Senior Nick Libera (Cromwell, Conn.) had a pair of singles for two of PSU’s five hits.

            Senior Greg Rose (Derby Line, Vt.) picked up his first win of the season with five-and-a-third innings for work for LSC.  Rose, junior Matt Durso (Concord, Vt.) and senior Jeremy Lawrence (Northfield, Vt.) had two hits apiece to lead the Hornets’ offense, and senior Nick Merrill (Windham, Maine) cracked a three-run homer to right.

            PSU freshman Trevor Hall (New Boston, N.H.) went 1-for-2 in the nightcap, and has hit safely in 12 of his last 13 games to improve his team-leading batting average to .346.

            Plymouth State, 5-28 overall, wraps up the season with five games this week – a non-conference doubleheader Wednesday at Castleton State (2:00 p.m.), a non-conference single game Thursday at Daniel Webster (2:00 p.m.), and a Little East Conference twinbill Saturday at Panther Park against Western Connecticut (12:00 p.m.).

            Lyndon State, 5-16, visits UMaine Presque Isle for Sunrise Conference games next Saturday and Sunday (12:00 p.m.).
