Game Box Score
|Sophomore Kevin Gilchrist tossed a gem to
give the Jumbos a series-opening win
BRUNSWICK, Me. -- Tufts University sophomore pitcher
Kevin Gilchrist (Medford, MA) tossed a complete-game, one-hit
shutout in a 5-0 Jumbo win over Bowdoin on Friday evening. The
Jumbos take game one of this key three-game NESCAC East Division set
and improve to 20-3 overall (8-1 NESCAC), while the Polar Bears lose
their fourth straight to fall to 20-9 (3-4 NESCAC).
The Jumbos scored four runs in the first inning, as
sophomore 3B Sam Sager (Cranston, RI) scored junior shortstop
David LeResche (St. Louis, MO) with a sacrifice fly to make
it 1-0. One batter later, junior LF Ian Goldberg (Lake Forest,
IL) scampered home on a wild pitch before sophomore 1B Matt
Collins (Hopkinton, MA) laced a hit to right field that appeared
to be caught by Bowdoin's Joe Comizio, but was ruled a hit by the
umpire, allowing two additional Tufts runs to come home.
That proved to be all Gilchrist would need, as the
sophomore did not allow a hit until the sixth, when Bowdoin's
Brendan Garner ripped a double to the left-center gap. Gilchrist
walked five and struck out five in the victory. Tim Welch went 3.1
innings for the Polar Bears, permitted four earned runs before
giving way to Joe Pace, who tossed 5.2 scoreless innings of relief
to keep Bowdoin in the game.
Collins led all players with three hits for Tufts.
The teams will play a twinbill on Saturday beginning
