Baseball sweeps pace
Mike Neville – Sports Editor
The Owls baseball team got their first sweep of the season vs. Pace University this past weekend at the Ballpark at SCSU.
For the Owls, everything seemed to come together with both the bats and bullpen being a factor in both wins.
Pace mustered four runs in both games for a total of eight on the day. The Owls scored eight runs in the first game and 10 in the second.
The scoring opened in the first inning when Jack Drewry singled home Zack Bedryczuk for the first run of the game. A double by Peyton Farina in the fourth opened the game to 3-0 before Pace tied it in the fourth.
Tyshaun Diaz and Berdryczuk each went 2-4 in the first game, and both scored rubs on top of that.
Outfielder Andrew Eng would break that tie, hitting his fourth home run in four games as his hot streak continues.
Pete Phillips had a strong showing in relief for the win in game one to back up a good performance by lefty Joe Nemchek. Brandon White recorded the four out save to put a close on game one for the Owls.
Game two was even better for the Owls. Tony Zambito had an impressive game going 2-4 with two stolen bases, two hits and three runs batted in. His quest to break the Owls stolen base record continues.
Izaiah Walker had an almost perfect 3-4 at the dish, driving in two runs and recording a double also.
The scoring for game two started in the first inning with a Drewry RBI single and a sacrifice fly by Farina that would later score Chad Fedeli.
Tommy Hughes and Zack Rodgers had solid outings out of the bullpen to cap the Owls victory. Hughes allowed Pace to score just one run through 1 ⅓ innings. Rogers was stellar and pitched two perfect innings to cap off the sweep for the Owls.
The Owls travel to Adelphi University today to make up games that were postponed on March 28.
