An upset-hungry D'Youville baseball team returned to the field on Senior Day to begin their final regular-season series, but fell twice to No. 20 St. Thomas Aquinas in East Coast Conference action Saturday evening in Gowanda, N.Y. After the Saints grabbed a quick two-run advantage at Gowanda High School in game one, the Spartans responded by scoring 15 of the game's final 16 runs for a 15-3 victory. The nightcap featured a pitching duel between senior Adam Lampman and three Spartan pitchers, as STAC edged the Saints, 2-1, in 10 innings. 

The pair of setbacks saw the Saints fall to 2-24 overall and 0-20 in conference play while the first-place Spartans improved to 22-3 overall and maintained a one game lead over Molloy in league play with a 16-3 mark. 

Game One Recap 

The Saints struck for two early runs in the home half of the first, as an infield single by freshman Alex Dzimian scored senior Renato Quinones from third, and, three batters later, senior Brendan Burke placed an RBI single into right field that doubled D'Youville's advantage.  

STAC answered with an RBI double from Andrew Guerra and an RBI single from Danny Di Marzo in the top of the third inning to deadlock the game at two. Sophomore Josh Battaglia got another run across for the Saints in the bottom of the third, scoring sophomore Jeremy Glinski once more after he reached on an infield single and then advanced to second base on a throwing error from the Spartan shortstop. 

The flood gates opened up for the Spartans in the top of the fifth, as they plated 10 runs on six hits to jump out to a 13-3 lead. STAC would also tack on insurance runs in the sixth and seventh innings to make it 15-3.

Alex Mack picked up the winning decision for STAC, tossing six innings in the start and striking out eight while allowing two earned runs on four hits. Three relievers combined to throw three scoreless innings for the Spartans.

Dzimian started on the hill for D'Youville and lasted 4.1 innings, only getting tagged with two earned of the nine runs scored by the Spartans. The freshman right-hander did fan five batters while issuing four walks and seven hits. Sophomore Jared Glowniak (1.2 innings), Burke (1.0 inning)senior Nick Jank (1.0 inning), and Quinones (1.0 inning) also made appearances in relief for the Saints in the opener. 

Game Two Recap 

In his final D'Youville start on the mound, Lampman shined, tossing all 10 innings for the Saints and kept his team in the running for an upset of the ECC leaders. The nightcap remained scoreless for the first five innings, with Lampman holding the Spartans to one hit before STAC finally broke the deadlock in the top of the sixth inning on a solo home run to left center by James Versage. 

With six outs remaining, Glinski wasted no time in the home half of the sixth inning, answering Versage's blast with a solo shot of his own off the left field scoreboard. Glinski's second career homer knotted the game back up at one run apiece, a score line that would force the seven-inning game into extras. 

Glinski struck again in the bottom of the eighth with a single to left field, placing himself as the winning run on first base. D'Youville filled the bases with no outs on the next two plate appearances as Dzimian walked and junior Alex Liem was hit by a pitch. The Saints were unable to advance Glinski the final 90 feet as the next three Saints batters all struck out in order. 

Lampman prevailed in the ninth despite a leadoff single and a sacrifice bunt to move the go-ahead run to second base, getting a lineout to center and strikeout looking to end the threat. 

Another leadoff single in the top of the tenth proved costly as a triple landed just inside the right field line for Anthony Maisano, plating the go-ahead run for the Spartans. Lampman limited the damage by the getting a strikeout and a fly-out to right to keep Maisano stranded at third base. 

Needing a run to keep the marathon running into an 11th inning, Dzimian got himself on base with a leadoff walk but another trio of strikeouts sent the Saints home with their second defeat of the day.
