Lasell Tops Falcons 4-1

The Albertus Magnus baseball team fell to Lasell College 4-1 in game one of the Saturday evening Great Northeast Athletic Conference (GNAC) doubleheader. With the win, Lasell snaps the Falcons' five-game winning streak.

Lasell (6-11, 2-3 GNAC) scored three runs on five hits in the top of the second then one in the fourth to take a commanding 4-0 lead.  David Long struck out four consecutive batters to begin the game and retired the first seven he faced before Albertus' Patrick Dornfried (Berlin, Conn.) doubled to left center. Albertus loaded the bases with two outs thanks to the double and two walks but a sliding catch in centerfield by Lasell's Rob Madden ended the frame with the Falcons still off the scoreboard.

Albertus put a run on the board in the bottom of the fifth inning as Nick Sedia (Bronx, N.Y.) scored on an RBI single by Anthony Pellegrino (Branford, Conn.).

Lasell's Corey Michell and Billy Uberti both recorded two hits to lead the Lasers. Lasell's Long allowed three hits and four walks in five innings of work. Gary Trotteir earned the save as he struck out two in two innings of work.

Matthew Finkenzeller (Wolcott, Conn.) went 5.1 innings as he allowed four runs on nine hits.  Mike Hughes (Norwalk, Conn.) came in out of the bullpen and faced five batters in 1.2 innings of work. He recorded one strikeout.
