Game Box Score

Junior Ian Goldberg had three RBI in the game, including the game-tying

MEDFORD -- The Tufts University baseball team scored three runs without a hit in the bottom of the eighth inning to go from trailing 8-7 to winning 10-8 against Colby College in the opener of a three-game NESCAC East Division series on Saturday afternoon at Huskins Field.

The visiting Mules had an 8-4 lead in the game thanks to a five-run fifth inning. In that frame, senior co-captain Ryan Conlon (Ridgefield, CT) singled home a run and scored, sophomore 3B Mike Mastrocola (Soutbury, CT) doubled home a run and scored, and senor 2B John LaMantia (Gates Mills, OH) had an RBI single and scored.

Tufts battled back to 8-7 with three runs in the sixth. Junior 2B Frank Petroskey (Dallas, TX) struck the big blow with a two-run single.

After Tufts junior reliever Ed Bernstein (Foxborough, MA) came on and got the Jumbos out of a jam in the top of the eighth, Colby pitchers hit four Jumbo batters with pitches and walked two others during the bottom of the eighth. Junior LF Ian Goldberg (Lake Forest, IL) was hit by a pitch to force in the tying run, and sophomore 3B Sam Sager (Cranston, RI) worked a walk to bring in the game-winning ninth run.

Goldberg's two-run double to left-center in the third had given the Jumbos a 4-2 lead. He finished the day 2 for 4 with three RBI and a run scored. Petroskey was 2 for 3 with two RBI and a run out of the ninth spot. Junior CF David Orlowitz (Wakefield, MA) was 2 for 4 and scored two runs for Tufts.

Colby out-hit the Jumbos 16-10. Conlon was 3 for 5 with two RBI and a run, Mastrocola went 2 for 5 with two RBI and a run, sophomore SS Brandon Nieuw (Port Chester, NY) finished 2 for 5 with two runs and an RBI, and senior LF Ken Kaufman (Lexington, MA) was 2 for 5 with a run and an RBI.

Bernstein got the win for Tufts, which improved to 13-3 overall and 3-1 in the NESCAC East. Sophomore Chris DeGoti (Miami, FL) secured his fifth save, allowing just a two-out single in the ninth. The Jumbos have won nine out of their last 10.

Freshman Nathaniel Sugarbaker (Milton, MA) took the loss for Colby, which dropped to 9-6 overall and 0-4 in the conference. A six-game winning streak by the Mules came to an end.

The teams will play a double-header tomorrow at Huskins beginning at noon.
