Baseball splits with Southern

The Chargers honored their five graduating seniors in their doubleheader slate against cross-town rival, Southern Connecticut State University, on Saturday.

The Chargers took game one of the doubleheader, honoring their seniors with a 4-3 win. Dylan Chiaro and Andrew Bianco each delivered clutch hits, driving in runs for the Chargers when it mattered the most.

Brandon Lamana grabbed the win on the mound, shutting the door on the Owls in the sixth and seventh after pitching himself out of multiple runners in situations.

The Chargers looked to carry the momentum into game two but struggled to get the big hit with runners in scoring position. The Blue and Gold stranded 11 runners throughout the game, with at least one in each inning.

Multiple times the Chargers inched back into the games, getting within one run, but were unable to grab a lead after surrendering four runs to the Owls in the fourth. The Owls managed to continue to pull ahead and push runs across on their way to a 10-3 victory with five Owls scoring in the ninth.

The Chargers return to action next weekend as they travel to Pace for two Southwest divisional doubleheaders against the Setters, with first pitches coming at noon on Saturday and again on Sunday.
