May 1st, 2004 by Adam

            PROVIDENCE, R.I. – The Plymouth State University hitters banged out 27 runs on 30 hits Saturday afternoon, but it wasn’t nearly enough as the Panther baseball team got swept by Rhode Island College in a Little East Conference doubleheader, 27-18 and 32-9.

            PSU had 17 hits and scored 18 runs in the opener, but Panther hurlers allowed 27 runs on 31 hits.  Freshman Trevor Hall (New Boston, N.H.) and junior Matt Gabellieri (Lincoln, R.I.) each had a career-high four hits for PSU, Hall going 4-for-7 with three RBI and Gabellieri going 4-for-6 with a double and five RBI. Sophomore Adam Kobeski (Walpole, N.H.) added three hits and two RBI, and senior Jay Morgan (Laconia, N.H.) drove in three runs.

            Hall added three more hits and two RBI in the nightcap, raising his team-leading batting average to .343.  He also legged out his team-high 11th double.  Kobeski and freshman Nick Jaskolka (Manchester, N.H./Memorial) each had two hits and two RBI in the second game, and junior Derek Guimond (Lewiston, Maine) had two hits in each game.

            Plymouth State, 5-26 overall and 1-11 in the Little East, will try and regroup for a non-conference doubleheader Sunday at Panther Park against Lyndon State College (12:00 p.m.).  RIC, 17-14 overall and 4-8 in the LEC, plays at Johnson & Wales on Monday (3:30 p.m.).
