Cards Down Green Terror 3-0
CUA improves to .500 on the season
WESTMINSTER, Md. - The Catholic University baseball team improved to .500 on the season with a 3-0 win over the McDaniel College Green Terror (1-3) Wednesday afternoon. With the win the Cards improve to 4-4 and have won their first two games after returning from spring break.
The Cardinal offense methodically took control scoring in the second, third and fourth innings while stalling any Green Terror attack. In the second Tommy Little (Hyattsville, Md./DeMatha) got the Cards on the board with a homer over the right field fence to make it 1-0.
After forcing McDaniel to go three and out for the second consecutive inning, CUA once again used a big hit to cross the plate as Mike Goodman (Brookville, Md./Sherwood) tripled to right center and was brought home by Tommy Bowles (Davidsonville, Md./Mount Saint Joe) on a sac fly to give the Cards a two-run lead. In the fourth, the Cardinals took advantage of two Green Terror field errors to put men on base and Joe Devine (Medford Lakes, N.J./Shawnee) brought in the run to make it 3-0 which would be the final.
Kevin Sweeney (Bethesda/St. Anselm's Abbey School) got the win on the mound pitching seven innings with four strikeouts while Billy Robbett (Springfield, Va./Bishop Iretan) was awarded the save. Both squads had five hits in the game but six McDaniel errors proved to be the difference. Little led the Cards at the plate with two hits.
The Cardinals will have two days off before hosting Juniata in their first conference game of the year on Saturday at noon.
