Greyhounds Play Hawks to 4-4 Tie in 13 Innings

Worcester, Mass. (April 19) -- The Assumption College baseball team played Saint Anselm College to a 4-4 tie in 13 innings at Rocheleau Field on Thursday afternoon in a game that was cut short due to darkness.

The game could not be decided after more eight pitchers had been used and four hours had passed.

The Greyhounds scored once in each of the first four innings, and had 15 total hits as six Assumption players had two-hit games, but could not push any runs across for the final nine innings.

Each starters line looked remarkably similar, as Kevin Mayone (Saugerties, N.Y./Saugerties) worked the first six innings for Assumption, allowing 10 hits and four runs, three earned. He faced 27 batters, while striking out five.

For Saint Anselm, Zachary Brian worked six innings, allowing the same 10 hits and four runs, three earned, he also faced 27 batters, striking out four.

Each starter gave way to the bullpen, and each bullpen pitched seven innings of scoreless baseball.

For Assumption, it was seven innings of no-hit baseball, as Adam Camilleri (Chester, Conn./Valley Regional) pitched 2.1 perfect innings as the first reliever out of the pen.

Starting centerfielder Ysander Figueroa (Worcester, Mass./Worcester Tech) replaced Camilleri with one out in the ninth, and worked 2.2 innings of hitless baseball, striking out and walking four, before giving way to freshman Santi Palmer (San Juan, P.R./Colegio San Ignacio), who worked the final two innings without allowing a runner to reach base.

Assumption moves to 10-19-1, while Saint Anselm College goes to 18-19-2. The Greyhounds will return to action on Friday, April 20 at Southern Conn. State University. The game will begin at 3:30 p.m.
