Baseball falls to Moravian to close out three-game Landmark series
(Posted April 26, 2009)
BETHLEHEM, Pa. -- Juniata College senior Adam Spadafora (Asbury, N.J./Pennington School) went 2-for-3 at the plate while senior Dane Ott (South Williamsport, Pa./South Williamsport) drove in both Eagle runs as Juniata fell to Moravian College, 16-2, in Sunday's rubber game of a three-game Landmark Conference baseball series at Gillespie Field.
Moravian (20-17, 12-6 Landmark) used a 10-run second inning, including a grand slam home run by Kevin O'Keefe, to take a commanding 11-0 lead in the contest.
Juniata (13-21, 6-12 Landmark) posted two runs in the top of the third, after Spadafora reached on a walk and Kevin Small (Wheaton, Ill./Wheaton North) got aboard with a single to third base. A wild pitch allowed both runners to move in scoring position, and Ott plated both runners with a single through the right side.
The Greyhounds added three runs in the third, with two runs coming off Eric Shea's single to left field, and single runs in the fifth and eighth frames.
Freshman righthander Matt Regan (Downingtown, Pa./Devon Prep) allowed seven of the Moravian runs, five of which were earned, and fell to 1-3 with the loss. Moravian starter Thomas Fenyak allowed all six Juniata hits in the game and both Eagle runs, and improved to 6-2.
Juniata will face Gettysburg College on Wednesday, April 29, at 3:30 p.m. in Gettysburg, Pa.
