LANTANA, Fla. Looking for revenge on another team they lost to earlier in the week, the University of Pennsylvania baseball team was done in by six errors in a loss to Maine, 17-2, Thursday at the Santaluces Athletic Complex. The Black Bears scored in five different innings and scored multiple runs in four of those innings.
Maine (4-2) knocked out Penn starter Reid Terry (0-2) thanks to a three-run fifth inning. Terry’s final line read five runs allowed, but he was only charged for two earned runs. The Black Bears added one more run in the sixth to make the score 6-0.
Penn (3-3) got back into the game in the top of the seventh when they got their first two men on base. Kyle Armeny singled to right scoring Alex Nwaka. Two batters later, Joey Boaen scored on a fielder’s choice to cut the deficit to four runs.
In the bottom half of the inning Maine blew the game wide open scoring seven runs. The Black Bears explosion was capped off on a grand slam by Kevin McAvoy. Maine added four more runs in the eighth.
Tim May had a stellar day for the Quakers going 3-for-3 with a walk.
