U-Mary baseball splits low-scoring doubleheader

U-Mary battled Southwest Minnesota State and settled for a split in Friday’s doubleheader at Municipal Ballpark.

Game one was the definition of a pitcher’s duel, as the Marauders lost 1-0 in nine innings.

U-Mary freshman pitcher Jonathan Draheim was almost unhittable for the Marauders. He went 8 2/3 innings and racked up 12 strikeouts, all while allowing just five hits and one unearned run.

The only problem was that one run proved to be the difference, as the Marauders couldn’t muster any offense themselves. SMSU pitcher John Bezdicek shut down U-Mary’s hitters over 8 1/3 shutout frames. He struck out nine and allowed just five hits.

U-Mary scored quickly in the opening frame of game two, courtesy of a Jesus Payan RBI single to score Connor Doll.

SMSU’s Brady Lanoue got the Mustangs on the board with a solo home run in the fourth inning, but U-Mary took the lead right back in the bottom of the frame, thanks to an RBI fielder’s choice from Chris Scott.

Relievers Alec DeMaria and Charles Bielejeski allowed just one hit over the final three innings to secure the 2-1 win for the Marauders.

U-Mary’s rubber match with SMSU is set for Saturday at 12 p.m. at Municipal Ballpark.
