From a Trinity College Release

April 28, 2007

AMHERST, MA –The Amherst College baseball team dropped a pair of games in a doubleheader at Trinity College this afternoon. The Jeffs dropped game one 3-0, before a rain delayed second game loss of 7-1. Amherst falls to 12-12 on the year, and will now look to gain momentum heading into the final stretch of the regular season with a doubleheader against St. Mike's College tomorrow.

Amherst first-year Will Lawton (Newton, MA) led Amherst offensively in the double dip, going 2-for-5 at the plate with the lone RBI of the series. Lawton also had a double against Trinity.

Amherst first-year Andy Thal (McLean, VA), sophomore Brendan Powers (Walpole, MA) and junior Evan Bruno (Williamsburg, VA) were held hitless by the blazing Bantam pitching, combining to go 0-for-19 at the dish.

Junior Chris Edgar (Massapequa, NY) pitched six innings in game one for the loss, striking out four and surrendering three earned runs. Senior hurler Nick Kehoe (Washington Depot, CT) took the losing decision in the nightcap, going the distance and giving up all seven earned runs.

Amherst returns to action tomorrow afternoon at 1 p.m. when the Jeffs face Saint Michael's College for the last pair of regular season home games.
