Endicott College’s baseball team was defeated 2-0 by Saint Joseph's (Me.) on Tuesday evening, falling to a 4-5 streak in their young season.
Freshman Jonathan Dube got things started for the Monks, as his double to right-center field scored junior Hunter Richardson in the first inning.
The next three innings in the contest were scoreless, with pitchers Matt Bergeron and Cooper Anibal providing comfort to their respective ball clubs.
However, insurance would strike in the fifth inning for the Monks, with Massachusetts native Justin Juliano recording an RBI single to right field.
Despite some stellar pitching and solid defense, Endicott’s offense failed to put runs on the scoreboard. The team left eight men on base, opposed to the Monk’s six.
Although the loss puts the team below .500, Postgraduate Matt Bald (De Pere, Wisc.) was able to continue his hot start in 2020. With another two hits on Tuesday, his average sits at an impressive .355, along with a slugging percentage of the same number.
For the Monks, Dube continues to impress in his freshman campaign. He racked up another two hits in the victory, adding to his already five RBIs in a mere nine contests.
The Gulls return to action against Southern Me. this Sunday, March 15 in Lexington, South Carolina. The first pitch begins at 7:00 p.m.
