The Endicott College baseball team beat Wentworth on Wednesday, 10-3, at North Field. Seniors and graduate students were honored after the game.
One of those seniors, Cooper Anibal, earned the victory on the mound. The righty tossed three strikeouts while allowing zero hits.
Six other pitchers saw action for Endicott, and only five hits were recorded against them.
The Gulls were up by a mere two runs after the second inning, but a seven-run barrage catapulted them to a blowout victory.
Senior Justin Bailey and sophomore Jake Nardone each had two hits on the evening. Nardone collected his fifth home run on the season, batting in two runs in the process.
Brennan Quigley had one career hit heading into Wednesday. The Braintree native went 2-4 in this one, sending one over the wall for his first home run as well.
For Wentworth, only four players recorded hits while 11 balls flew past the plate for strikeouts. Their season comes to a disappointing end with a 6-11 record.
Anibal, Bailey, Quigley, Kyle Brennan, Anthony Macchia, Matthew McKinley, Nikolas Perkins, Matthew Robida, Brady Baldinger, and Vincent Walker were all honored after the contest for their time and commitment to the Endicott baseball program.
Despite saying goodbye to these players once the season is over, there’s still lots to look forward to for the program. 31 players on the current roster are underclassmen.
The team is now 13-6 overall, 9-3 in the CCC, and 10-4 at North Field this season. 148 total runs were scored, 18 of them being home runs.
Endicott will take on Suffolk in the CCC Tournament on Saturday, May 1. The double-header of games begin at noon and 3:00 p.m. The two teams will play Sunday at noon if necessary.
