Saints Split Doubleheader with Glen Oaks
Baseball - Mon, Apr. 20, 2009
A constant drizzle and temperatures only reaching the 50's the Holy Cross baseball team shook off some rust to play a doubleheader against Glenn Oaks Community College Sunday afternoon.
The Saints hadn't played since March 30th with subsequent games cancelled due to poor weather conditions. Kevin Gray gave the Saints an early 2-0 lead with his first of four singles in the game.
Adding four runs in the third and one in the fourth the Saints took a 7-0 lead before Glen Oaks plated three in the top of the fifth inning. The Saints were able to get those runs back in the bottom of the sixth and hold on for a 10-3 victory in game one. Ed Reardon pitched five strong innings to record the win. Tim Mouton held the Vikings scoreless over the last two innings.
The Saints took another 2-0 lead in game two when Nick Roberts' RBI single scored Joe Helfrick in the first and Tim Mouton's RBI single with two outs scored Brad Rhodes. The Vikings came back with three runs of their own in the top of the third, and then blew the game open with six runs in the 5th inning. The Saints eventually fell 9-3. Ed Reardon singled in the fifth to plate Mouton for their only other run.
Doubleheaders on Wednesday, Thursday, Saturday, and Sunday will conclude a busy end of the season for the Saints. Satudays games will be played at Frank Eck Stadium located on the campus of Notre Dame. First pitch is scheduled for 2pm. The Saints will end their season against Indiana University Northwest at the U.S. Steel Yard in Gary, IN on Sunday April, 25th at 1pm.
