Baseball Falls to Maine in America East Elimination Game; Finish Season 28-23

Lowell, Mass – The UMBC Baseball team ended the 2016 season with a 28-23 record after falling to Maine in the America East Championships Elimination Game on Wednesday night in Lowell, Massachusetts.

Maine jumped out to an early 2-0 lead on two unearned runs in the first and never looked back in an 11-1 win. UMBC committed four errors and seven of Maine's 11 runs were unearned. Senior Nick Naumann had the Retrievers first hit on a fifth inning single, but the Retrievers bats were mostly silent the rest of the night. The Retrievers got on the board in the eighth when Tim Kelly pinch-hit and reached second on a dropped fly ball, moved to third on a wild pitch and scored on a Mitchell Carroll single.  

The game marked the final collegiate appearances for Naumann, Kevin Lachance, Anthony Gatto, Denis Mikush and Conrad Wozniak.
