Mammoths, Polar Bears Settle for Suspended 1-1 Tie

BRUNSWICK, Maine -- A suspended game from Saturday afternoon will not be finished on Sunday due to poor field conditions, and the Amherst College and Bowdoin College baseball teams will settle for a 1-1 tie after six innings completed in non-conference baseball action at Pickard Field.

The Mammoths (14-11-1) had grabbed a single run in the third inning, while Bowdoin (5-19-1) tied the game in the fifth inning. 

Both starting pitchers had thrown fantastic outings for their respective teams. Andrew Ferrero '19 tossed six innnings and struck out seven, allowing just three hits, no walks and one unearned run.

Brandon Lopez struck out five over six innings for the Polar Bears. His one allowed run was also unearned and he too did not walk an opposing batter.

Daniel Qin '22 had two of the Mammoth's six hits. Nick Nardone '19, who led off the third inning with a single, scored the lone run when he crossed the plate on a fielding error by Bowdoin. Amherst had three hits in the third, but left two runners on base.

Bowdoin struck with two outs in the fifth when shortstop Eric Mah doubled home Nick Merrill, who had reached on a fielding error to start the frame.

Amherst heads to Clark University tomorrow night for a 6:00 PM non-conference game before next weekend's NESCAC series against Middlebury.

The Polar Bears host Southern Maine on Tuesday at 4:30 PM.
