UMBC Falls in Series Finale with Miami, 20-1 on Sunday Afternoon

Coral Gables, Fla.-- UMBC baseball dropped a 20-1 decision in the series finale to Miami on Sunday afternoon. Blaze O'Saben (Warrenton, Va.) had the lone hit and run scored in the contest in the first inning. Miami hit five home runs in the game to help propel them to victory.

The Retrievers fall to 2-4 on the year while the Canes improve to 9-2.

UMBC got things started in the first inning once again. Blaze O'Saben led off the game with a four pitch walk and would advance on a failed pick off attempt all the way to third. He would later score on an AJ Wright (Cherry Hill, N.J.) sacrifice fly to give the Retrievers a 1-0 lead.

The Hurricanes would answer right back in the bottom of the inning, getting a pair of runs on back-to-back hits to give them a 2-1 lead after one.

They would continue to add to their lead, getting two in the second, one in the third and six in the fourth to take a commanding 11-1 lead.

From there, the Retrievers would muster just three more hits, as the Hurricanes took the series finale, 20-1 after adding nine more runs in the final four innings.

Five different Retrievers recorded hits on the afternoon with O'Saben scoring the lone Retriever run in the first inning. Peter Godrick (Millersville, Md./Archbishop Spalding), Joey Goodwin (Rockville, Md./Good Counsel), Joe Milkowski (Lackawanna, N.Y.) and Raven Beeman (Somerset, Pa.) also had hits on Sunday.

The Retrievers will return north to take on Coppin State and Navy on the road on Tuesday and Wednesday this week.
