UAlbany Sports Information   03-31-2018

Game One Score: Maine 10, UAlbany 2

Game Two Score: Maine 4, UAlbany 1

Location: Mahaney Diamond in Orono, Maine

Records: UAlbany (9-10, 1-4 AE); Maine (7-19, 3-2 AE)

Short Story: The UAlbany baseball team dropped both games in the series-opening doubleheader at Maine on Saturday in their second America East series of the season.

Coach Mueller: “We had a tough time generating offense all day today.  I thought our defense was good, I thought we pitched pretty well in the second game, but this is what conference baseball is all about.  We gave them too many free passes in that first game, but we have a big game tomorrow and we’re looking forward to it.”
