Baseball Drops Fourth Straight
April 1, 2003
Freshman Tucker Frawley had two hits to lead the Holy Cross baseball team past Siena, 3-1, Tuesday, April 1 at Fitton Field. Play was suspended after 5.5 innings due to snow. The Crusaders' second-straight victory lifted the team to 4-11 overall while Siena dropped to 4-20.
Senior Ben Deane scattered five hits through 6.0 innings of work, giving up one unearned run and striking out three Saint batters.
Siena threatened early. Kevin Roberts, who led off the inning for the Saints, singled, stole second and advanced to third on Blake Hanan's single, was caught attempting to come home by HC catcher Mike Marron on Deane's wild pitch. Hanan eventually crossed the plate on a Crusader throwing miscue to first base to lift Siena up by one after one.
Drew Bigda scored first for Holy Cross in the bottom of the second. The sophomore singled, stole second and advanced to third care of a single by Jim McCloud, then crossed the plate when catcher Matt Mueller's errant attempt to catch McCloud stealing landed in the outfield. Senior Bill Andruskevich drove in McCloud with a groundout for the game-winning run.
Tucker Frawley's double in the bottom of the fifth inning brought home Dan Powers, who tripled to lead off the frame for the final count of 3-1.
Siena begins its home season with a MAAC series against Manhattan this weekend. The Saints and Jaspers square off in a doubleheader on Saturday at noon.
