STANDISH, Maine - In their first games played in the state of Maine this season, the Bowdoin College baseball team struggled in a doubleheader sweep at the hands of St. Joseph's College on Tuesday evening. The Monks took game one, 12-3, before completing the twinbill with a 10-0 decision in game two.
Down 3-0 in the third inning of game one, Bowdoin mustered a pair of runs on RBI singles from Brendan Garner and Reid Auger. That would prove to be all the scoring for the Polar Bears on the day, as St. Joseph's scored four times in the bottom of the third and fourth innings to put the contest out of reach. Joe Pace took the loss for Bowdoin by allowing six earned runs in three innings. Auger and Matt Ruane each had two hits for the Polar Bears.
Bowdoin could only scrape three hits together in game two, as the Monks led 1-0 entering the fourth and tagged on nine runs in the final three innings to take the win. Auger accounted for two of the team's hits in the defeat as Steve Hall took the loss by going 4.1 innings and giving up three earned runs.
Bowdoin will return to action this weekend with a three-game set against Tufts. The team is hoping that Pickard Field will be clear of snow and ready to host the series this Friday and Saturday, but a decision will be made on the location later this week.
