CMS Baseball Tripped Up at Redlands
REDLANDS, Calif. - The Claremont-Mudd-Scripps baseball team got out of a two-out tenth inning jam as a suspended league game was resumed at Redlands, but ended up falling on an unearned run in the 11th, before dropping a regularly-scheduled non-league game 14-1 on Saturday afternoon at The Yard.
With the losses, CMS is now 5-6 overall and 2-4 in the SCIAC, while Redlands improves to 10-7 overall and 4-2 in league play.
The SCIAC game at Redlands was suspended on Friday, Feb. 28 due to darkness, with CMS and Redlands deadlocked at 8-8 in the bottom of the 10th inning. The Bulldogs had runners on first and third and two outs when the game was halted, with first-year pitcher Jarrett Korson on the mound. Korson remained in the game when play was resumed and got a big strikeout to leave the winning run on third base and push the contest into the 11th.
CMS was retired in order in the top of the 11th, and the Bulldogs were able to push across an unearned run in the bottom half to earn a 9-8 win. The loss spoiled a game in which sophomore third baseman Marco Castillo had five RBI on a two-run homer and a three-run double back on Feb. 28.
The regularly scheduled game saw Redlands keep up the momentum from its walk-off win, scoring one run in the first, two in the second, three in the third, and two in the fourth on the way to their 14-1 win. Miles Cook had the lone multi-hit game for CMS, finishing 2-for-4 with an RBI. Leadoff hitter Jonah Advincula was 3-for-4 with three runs scored and three RBI for Redlands.
The Stags will be back in action tomorrow for another non-league contest, taking on Whitman at 10:30 a.m. at Arce Field.
