Softball game controversially called in the middle of sixth inning

The second game of the double header between Assumption College and Merrimack College ended early due to fading sunlight. Merrimack had the opportunity to bat in the top of the sixth inning before the umpire called the game, as it was too dark to continue play. The official final score at the end of six and a half innings was 3-0 in favor of Merrimack.

Officially when a game is called, in reference to the NCAA official rulebook rule 14.33, if a regulation game (five or more complete innings) is called, the record of all individual or team actions up to the moment the game ends shall be recorded. According to the rule, if the scoring in an incomplete inning has no bearing on the outcome of the contest, then all individual and team statistics must be included. And if a called game is a tie, the winning and losing pitchers shall not be designated.

Baseballl drops two games at Le Moyne

Following a three-game home sweep of Saint Michael’s College at the end of last month, the Assumption College Men’s Baseball team traveled to Syracuse, New York to take on the Le Moyne Dolphins.

While the Greyhounds have found success at home this season, they cannot seem to get a rhythm going when they compete on enemy territory. Unfortunately, that trend continued on Saturday, April 2, when the Hounds dropped two games in their double-header against Le Moyne.

The Dolphins were the first to find the scoreboard in the first game, as first-year Nick Place drove in junior Gabe Levanti with a single to center field. A solo home-run by senior Pat Wright made the score 2-0 at the bottom of the fourth inning.

Senior Colin Clancy broke the ice for the Hounds when he crossed the plate on an unearned run in the fifth. However, Le Moyne kept their foot on the gas and answered with five runs of their own through the next three innings.

Although the Assumption College Men’s Lacrosse team sports a 2-6 record, they have been playing with a great deal of tenacity and resilience.

Looking to rebound off the overtime loss and prove their worth, the Hounds traveled to Rindge, N.H. to take on the Franklin Pierce University Ravens.

It was the Ravens who would open the scoring, with sophomore Sean Delea finding the back of the net at the 13:39 mark. Delea would go on to assist the next goal scored by sophomore Ben Lassow to make the score 2-0 in favor of Franklin Pierce.
