Saints Win Opener

Saints Win Opener

The Mercyhurst North East Baseball team opened up their 2019 season in Myrtle Beach, SC Tuesday afternoon (3/5/19) posting two wins beating York College 5-3, and Ancilla College 10-6. 

Ricky Handel Jr. got the nod in game one for the Saints and after giving up two quick runs to start the game, he settled in nicely to lead the Saints to a 5-3 victory. Despite falling behind early, Korey Shoupe got the party started offensively by hitting a bases clearing double to put the Saints ahead 3-2. The Saints then started clicking as Padraig O'Shaughnessy and Chris Reilly both connected for hits in the 5th to stretch the Saints lead to 4-2. 

Late in the game Dan Klase and Joe Gammon entered in relief to give the Saints their first win of the year.
