UMBC BASEBALL HEAD COACH JOHN JANCUSKA REACHES CAREER WIN 599 WITH 5-2 VICTORY OVER VERMONT
Steve Evans earned his first conference win of the season going 6.2 innings on Sunday.
The Catamounts took an early 2-0 lead taking advantage of four UMBC errors. With one out in the second, Kyle Brault went from second to third on a wild pitch and came home on a throwing error by catcher Alex Laddbush. A wild throw to second base on a failed pickoff attempt by Laddbush on James Chapman in the third inning led to the second UVM run.
UMBC countered in their next at bat loading the bases with no outs on a hit batter, an error by Chapman and a walk to Kyle Wildasin. Fowler cleared the bases with a long triple over the head of center fielder Kyle Massie and he came home with the fourth run on a sacrifice fly by Laddbush. The Retrievers would add insurance run in the ninth as Wildasin was hit by a pitch, sacrificed to second and scored on a single to center by Laddbush.
The offensive support was more than enough for UMBC starter Steve Evans (2-2) who scattered just six singles and walked one hitter in six and two thirds innings. After giving up three straight two-out singles in the seventh, Zach Clark relieved Evans and retired Raymond Montanez to end the inning.
Other than the fourth,
Fowler finished 1-for-3 with three RBI and a run scored while Laddbush went 2-for-2 with two RBI and a walk.
