Bangor, ME - Husson baseball used two solid pitching performances Friday afternoon at the Winkin Complex en route to 1-0 and 2-1 victories. Game two featured a 1-0 Husson lead heading into the seventh, where UMF tied the game and Husson scored in the bottom half on another Beaver miscue to walk off with the win.
The Eagles took game one by a final of 1-0. The Eagles scored the lone run of the game, that took just an hour and sixteen minutes, in the bottom half of the third. Dylan Foster singled to third advancing Cody McInnis who scored on the same play on a throwing error by the first baseman and moved Foster all the way to third.
Dennis O'Neil went the distance on the mound for the Eagles, giving up just four hits and a walk while striking out two. O'Neil improves to 2-2 on the year.
Jimmy Neal picked up the tough loss for the Beavers to fall to 2-1. Neal allowed just the one run (unearned) on three hits and three walks and struck out six.
Dylan Foster picked up two more hits in three at bats along with J.T. Whitten's solo hit. Cody McInnis' two walks led the lone Husson run.
The story of game two came down to the final two innings. Husson plated a run in the bottom of the sixth to go ahead on a wild pitch. Jory Humphrey, now 0-4, threw a wild pitch that scored the Husson slugger for a 1-0 lead.
UMF didn't allow Husson to feel comfortable very long, scoring in the top half of the seventh to knot the game at 1-1.
Centerfielder Tom Grady doubled to left with one out to start the final inning charge for the Beavers. Grady advanced in the next at bat on a wild pitch and scored on a Dustin McCrossin single to right moments later.
In the bottom half of the final frame, after a Brandon Gendreau fly-out to center, Andrew Curran singled to center. McInnis laid down a bunt in the next at bat to move Curran to second and then scored on an RBI single by none other than Dylan Foster to win the game in walk-off fashion.
Tim Nason improves to 4-0 with the win, giving up one earned run on five hits and a walk while fanning two.
Jory Humphrey falls to 0-4 in 6.2 innings after giving up two runs on seven hits and two walks while striking out one.
Foster and Whitten led the charge yet again for the Eagles with three hits and two hits respectively.
Manager Jason Harvey said after the wins: "We got two great pitching performances today and it was nice to earn two conference wins. I'm proud of the way the guys found a way to win in both games."
Husson improves to 16-9 and 11-4 in conference while Farmington drops to 6-18 and 5-9 in the NAC.
The Eagles took little time before turning their focus on Saturday's opponent, Endicott College. Husson boarded a bus for Beverly, MA just over an hour after Friday's double dip. First pitch for Saturday's twin bill is 12:00 noon.
