BRONX, N.Y. – Having to quickly put together yet another game after the weather forced the cancellation of one already scheduled, the University at Albany baseball team (8-9, 1-2 AE) found itself playing at Fordham (9-11, 1-2 A-10) on the day after its regularly scheduled game at Fairleigh Dickinson was rained out. The Great Danes fell to the Rams by a final score of 7-3, dropping the team below .500 for the first time since March 5.
Fordham was one of the games UAlbany lost earlier this month due to the lingering effects of Winter Storm Stella. When the Fordham Tournament was cancelled, the Great Danes pieced together a three-game series against Hofstra, one of their scheduled opponents at the Fordham Tournament, at a neutral site in Virginia.
UAlbany scored first, having one run cross the plate in the top of the third after the first two innings went by without a run score. Fordham didn’t respond until the bottom of the fourth inning with four runs of its own to take a 4-1 lead. UAlbany scored once in the top of the sixth after a scoreless fifth, and Fordham kept pace with one run in the bottom of the inning. Fordham scored twice in the bottom of the seventh to take a 7-2 lead and UAlbany scored one final time in the top of the ninth to bring the final score to 7-3.
