Middlebury baseball bested in extra innings

HOBOKEN, N.J. — The Middlebury College baseball team dropped its opener on Saturday to host Stevens Institute, 5-4, in 10 innings. 
The Panthers rallied to tie with two runs in the ninth inning and took the lead in the 10th, but host Stevens scored twice in its final at bat, tying the game on a sacrifice fly and scoring the winning run on a throwing error. 
Middlebury will play on Thursday at Rensselaer before heading to Atlanta this weekend for a three-game series with Emory, starting with a doubleheader on Saturday and a single game on Sunday.
On this past Saturday, Middlebury took the lead in the first, when Justin Han reached on an infield single and scored on a Sam Graf sacrifice fly.
The Ducks (2-4) took the lead in the bottom half of the first with two runs off starter Colby Morris, the only runs he surrendered in a six-inning stint. Stevens made it a 3-1 game in the seventh on a bases-loaded walk; the run was credited to Conor Himstead.
In the top the ninth, the Panthers scored when Ryan Hanrahan singled in Brooks Carroll, and a Gray Goolsby sacrifice fly plated Henry Strmecki.
The Panthers took the lead in the 10th when Carroll drove home Han from third base with an infield hit.
The Ducks then rallied for the win with the one-out sacrifice fly and error. Colin Waters (0-1) took the loss in three innings of relief. He allowed one earned run on four hits.
