NCAA Regionals
Swarthmore put up a solid showing against the No. 1 team in the nation on Friday, but Eastern Connecticut State pulled away with a 10-7 victory in an opening game of the NCAA Regional Tournament in Rochester, NY. 

The Garnet overcame a two-run deficit in the third via a Luke Mutz RBI double and an Austin Burgess three-run homer. Nate Jbara added a solo homer in the fourth to extend the lead, but the Warriors answered with seven runs over the following three frames to take the contest. Three of the runs in the sixth were unearned, stemming from a throwing error by Garnet shortstop Max Roffarg. 

The Garnet collected 13 hits on the day, with five players collecting at least a pair. Edward Berry took the loss, surrendering six runs over five innings. He walked a pair, gave up six hits, and struck out five. 

Swarthmore will face host Rochester on Saturday in an elimination game. The Yellow Jackets fell to Middlebury on Friday, 10-5. 

A sacrifice bunt in the eighth evened the contest before a two-run ninth broke a tie on Friday as Keystone knocked off host Immaculata in the first game of the NCAA Regional Tournament, 7-5.

Trevor Wagner was saddled with the loss, surrendering three runs on five hits over 1 2/3 innings in relief of starter Jason Hughes. 

The Macs' starter tossed seven innings, allowing four runs on nine hits. Louis Sharp led the Macs at the plate, finishing 2-for-3 with four RBIs. Josh Crowding chipped in with two hits. 

The Macs will play the loser between Ithica and Montclair State on Saturday in an elimination game. 

A four-run sixth inning and some solid work out of the bullpen led Arcadia to a 10-5 victory over Husson on Friday in an NCAA Regional Tournament game at Skip Wilson Field in Ambler. 

 Alex Madera led the Knights at the plate, finishing 4-for-5 with a pair of RBIs. Ryan Smollen and Justin Massielo finished with two hits each. Zach Sekelick chipped in with three RBIs. 

Nick Fossile earned the win, allowing five runs (two earned) on seven hits across six innings with three walks and five strikeouts. Nadell Booker earned his first save of the season, allowing one hit over three innings with zero walks and six strikeouts.
