The City College of New York baseball team was topped 10-2 by NYU on Saturday. City and NYU were supposed to play a doubleheader, but battling through the weather, the two teams played just one nine-inning game. The second game of the doubleheader does not have a new date yet.
City got things started right off in the first inning. Michael Siklas reached on a fielding error, followed by Adrian Pena recorded a base hit up the middle. Rob Mandich also reached on a fielding error to load the bases. Elmy Antonio then came up to bat and singled and brought in both Siklas and Pena for an early 2-0 lead. Those two runs would be all CCNY would get across in the first inning.
Sasha Urbach led things off for the Beavers on the mound. In his five innings pitched, he gave up seven runs, but only two were earned. Urbach also recorded one strikeout.
CCNY would hold off the Violets until the third inning. NYU would score four runs off of just two hits for a 4-2 lead.
NYU recorded three more runs in the fifth inning for a 7-2 lead.
Coming into pitch for CCNY would be Cal Romano. He would pitch 2.0 innings and give up three runs to the Violets.
The Violets picked up one more run in the sixth inning for a 8-1 lead.
The Beavers could not get anything going for them as they battled through the rain and wind. It would be just those two runs in the first inning that the Beavers would hold onto. NYU came out with a pair of runs in the seventh inning for a 10-2 lead.
Lorenzo Hiaraldo would pitch the final inning for the Beavers. Hiraldo would leave the Violets hit-less as he would also record one strikeout.
At the end of the ninth inning, NYU would take the victory 10-2.
