Due to inclement weather and improper field conditions, the 24th-ranked Le Moyne men’s baseball team was forced to play a doubleheader against the Franklin Pierce Ravens to conclude their weekend trek up North.

The Dolphins dropped the first game of their two-game series against the Ravens by a score of 2-1. Le Moyne opened the scoring in the bottom of the fifth when senior catcher/third baseman Gabe Levanti singled up the middle. Levanti advanced to second base on an infield single by sophomore outfielder David DiNorcia. With runners on first and second, sophomore shortstop Josiah Gray ripped an RBI double down the left field line, Levanti scored from second to give the Dolphin’s the 1-0 lead.

The Le Moyne bats went quiet for the remainder of the game as the Ravens claimed a 2-1 victory, scoring both runs in the seventh inning. ‘Phins pitcher Damian Powers took the loss in the game, giving up two runs, one earned, on eight hits and nine strikeouts over eight innings pitched.

The Dolphins were quick to put the previous game behind them as they connected on five hits, which scored five runs in their 5-2 win of the rubber-match. The Dolphins got on the scoreboard in the fourth inning when Levanti singled up the middle, scoring sophomore Camillo Spinoso. The Ravens centerfielder, unable to come up with the ball cleanly, allowed both Levanti and junior outfielder JT Pittman to race around the bases to give the Dolphins an early 3-0 lead.

Franklin Pierce rallied in the top of the fifth to cut the lead to 3-2. In the bottom of the stanza, Brian Cox delivered two runs for the Dolphins via the ‘Big Fly’ route, scoring Tim Corapi. Le Moyne pitcher Sean Pisik delivered another gem for Le Moyne, going the full nine innings, striking out nine while allowing seven hits with two earned runs.

The Dolphins (13-8, 1-1 NE-10), travel to American International for a weekend series with the Yellow Jackets before returning for a one-game homestand with East Stroudsburg University on Tuesday, April 4.
