How It Happened

  • The Seahawks and Marymount would end inning one with a tied score of 1-1. Sophomore shortstop Brandon Snow (Owings, Md./Northern) would double to centerfield to bring in first-year designated hitter Jay Hammett (Coltons Point, Md./Chopticon), who ran in from first base.
  • The Saints would answer in the third inning, going on a three-run rally and taking a 4-1 lead over St. Mary's.
  • After four scoreless innings and MU leading 5-1, the Seahawks would gain momentum and score two runs in the bottom of the sixth to close the gap to 5-3. Senior second baseman Zach Rowe (Davidsonville, Md./Calvert Hall) scored off a balk and soon after Snow would capitalize on a Saint error for the Seahawks' third run of the game.
  • However, it would not be enough to shut down the Saints as they went on a three-run rally in the seventh and tacked on another in the ninth.
