2008 Baseball Spring Blog - 3/8/08 - Game Underway

BOCA RATON - 12:53 p.m. – We have completed four innings on field two at the Santaluces Sports Complex. Penn and Lehigh are tied 3-3. The Mountain Hawks took a 1-0 lead in the top of the first when Austin Borden scored from second on a Logan Marshall single. The Quakers answered in the bottom of the second when two errors by Borden allowed the first two batters to reach. Dan Williams followed with a single to score one run. Steve Gable scored two with a single to right. In the third inning, Lehigh took advantage of an error by Williams that would have been the third out of the inning. After the miscue, starter Andy Console walked three batters in a row to score one run and then hit Dan Clauson to force in the third run for Lehigh’s third run.
