Game Box Score
NORTH DARTMOUTH -- Four Tufts pitchers scattered ten hits and the Jumbos
hit three home runs and went on to defeat the University of Massachusetts
Dartmouth's baseball team, 7-2, in a non-conference game at the UMass
Dartmouth Athletic Complex Tuesday afternoon.
Brian McDonough's (Hanover, MA) two-run homer in the first staked the
Jumbos to a 2-0 lead. Chris Decembrele (Walpole, MA) slammed a solo shot
off the back off the Cressy Field stands in the fourth inning, and Jim
O'Leary (North Easton, MA) hit a solo homer in the fifth inning.
Kevin Casey's (Milford, MA) RBI single in the seventh drove in two
more runs for Tufts.
Senior first baseman Dan Mancini (Marlboro, MA) provided the offense
for the Corsairs. Mancini's solo homer in the bottom of the sixth
inning accounted for UMass Dartmouth's first run, and his eighth-inning,
run-scoring double that drove in junior designated hitter Will Mahoney
(Mattapoisett, MA) accounted for the other.
Carlos Lopez (Brooklyn, NY),
the first of four Tufts pitchers, allowed three hits in five
scoreless innings and earned the victory, improving to 3-0. Senior
right-hander Jason Thompson (West Bridgewater, MA) pitched the first
5 2/3 innings for the Corsairs. He allowed four earned runs and
struck out seven and took the loss, falling to 0-3.
UMass Dartmouth fell to 5-20 with the defeat, while Tufts
improved to 13-11 with the victory. The Corsairs will return to
action when they host Roger Williams in a non-conference game
Tuesday afternoon. Tufts hosts a critical three-game set against
NESCAC East Division rival Trinity College beginning with a single
game on Friday at 3 pm.
