Falcons swept in doubleheader

After picking up a win to start its spring break invitational, the Falcons ran into strong pitching from Northeastern as the Huskies took two games from BG.

On day after a 25-0 loss to the Boston Red Sox in an exhibition game, the Huskies received two fantastic outings from their starting pitchers. In a game one, 4-3 win, Northeastern starter Andrew Leenhouts went the distance, throwing seven innings, allowing three runs out eight hits, striking out four.

In game two, a 5-2 Huskies win, Dylan Maki one-upped his counterpart, also going the distance, allowing two runs — one earned — on five hits in seven innings.

T.J. Losby hit his first home run of the year in game one, while Logan Walker and Brian Bien each drove in a run for BG in game one.

The Falcons only mustered five hits in the second game, but three came off the bat of Jake Thomas, who returned to the leadoff spot after sitting game one. While Thomas has only appeared in five of BG's nine games, his his hitting 9-for-17 (.529) with three RBI.

Ethan McKenney started game one for BG and went the distance, throwing six innings and allowing four runs on seven hits with six strikeouts.

Pat Martin started game two, but did not fare as well as McKenney. He lasted only three innings, allowing four runs — three earned — on three hits and three walks.

Now at 2-7, BG returns to action Monday afternoon as it takes on Georgetown.
