Baseball Splits AMCC Twinbill with Penn State Behrend
03/29/2003

ERIE, PA — Frostburg State used a six-run first inning and another strong pitching effort from sophomore Billye Hollister (Thomas Stone/Waldorf, Md.) to down host Penn State Behrend, 13-1, in the first game of an Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference doubleheader Saturday at Behrend Field.

The Lions forged a split with a 12-1 win in game two.

In the opener, the Bobcats (10-6-1, 2-2 AMCC) got all the runs they needed in the first inning. Senior Mark Teson (Shaker/Latham, N.Y.) reached on an error to start the game and scored on a double by junior Sean Davis (Sherwood/Olney, Md.).

Juniors Taylor Dixon (Robinson/Fairfax, Va.) and Ryan Hamerski (Sherwood/Olney, Md.) later walked to load the bases, and senior Jake Mannon (Lenape/Southhampton, N.J.) drove in Davis and Dixon with a single.

Senior Tim Wilkins (Mervo/Baltimore, Md.) blew the game open with a two-run triple and also scored on the play thanks to a Lion error.

Frostburg State tacked on five runs in the third, before adding two more in the fifth and a final run in the sixth.

That was more than enough for Hollister, who allowed just three singles and struck out six to improve to 3-0 on the year.

The crafty lefthander allowed a run on a ground out in the third inning, the first earned run he has allowed in 24 1/3 innings of work this season.

Davis, Hamerski and Mannon paced the Bobcats with two hits each, while Mannon and Wilkins drove in three runs apiece.

Penn State Behrend (12-6, 1-2) earned the split with the big win in the second contest. The Lions jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the first and added two runs in both the second and third innings. The hosts put the game out of reach with a five-run fourth.

FSU scored its lone run in the seventh on an RBI-single by freshman Kyle Mahan (Potomac/Woodbridge, Va.).

Lion freshman Brent Gabel held the Bobcat offense in check, scattering six hits and striking out eight in a complete-game effort.

The Bobcats return to action on Monday when they host Mount Aloysius in a doubleheader beginning at 1:00 pm.
