Short Story: UAlbany baseball falls 1-0 in the series finale against UMass Lowell to start America East play.

Coach Mueller: “Today was another tough ball game, just like all weekend.  Runs were tough to come by.  If you had told me we’d only give up four runs this weekend I probably would have said we were going to get a sweep, but unfortunately we were a little short today.  Defensively we were good, and I thought John Clayton pitched great.  Jack McClure came back and threw the ball outstanding in the last inning.  UMass Lowell was just a little better today, and you have to tip your cap to them when they score one more run than you.”

Key Stats

  • John Clayton lasted 7.0 innings, allowing one run with six strikeouts
  • Jack McClure made his season debut, throwing one shutout inning with two strikeouts

How it happened

  • UMass Lowell scored the game’s only run in the bottom of the second inning
  • UAlbany threatened in the top of the third, loading the bases with two outs, but could not come away with a run
  • UAlbany put runners on second in the top of the fifth and top of the ninth but could not score
