Shorthanded Huskies fall to Marist

Marist 4, Sweet Home 1

Marist topped the Husky baseball team on the road 4-1 on Thursday.

The Huskies scored when Adam Hummer drove Kyle Pettit, who doubled, home in the fourth inning.

Marist scored two runs in the first inning on a Husky error that should have been Marist’s third out, Coach Dan Tow said. Marist scored two again in the sixth on another error and a tough call by an umpire.

“Pettit pitched the whole game,” Tow said. “He pitched a great game. They really had a hard time hitting the ball.”

He gave up a few too many walks early on, with five in the first two innings, Tow said. He had six total on the game, and struck out three or four batters. He gave up three hits.

Tyler Horner led the Huskies hitting going 2-3. Pettit hit a double and scored the Huskies’ only run on a single by Hummer. Chaz Davis, Greg Sipe and Brad Valloni also hit singles.

“Marist is a really good team, and I really thought we played pretty well,” Tow said. “Our defense wasn’t that bad, but the errors we committed really hurt us. I thought it was the best we’ve played so far.”

The Huskies were shorthanded again for this game though, Tow said. Skyler Bascom was away taking a required test.

Of five games so far, the Huskies have only had everyone playing in the game against South Albany, Tow said, and they won that one.

If they can keep everyone healthy and eligible, Tow said, he’s optimistic about this team.
