Uniondale, N.Y.-The University of Bridgeport baseball team saw its record fall 9-8 both overall and in the East Coast Conference on Saturday afternoon, as the Purple Knights fell in both ends of doubleheader at Molloy College, losing game one, 17-4, and dropping the nightcap, 5-0. With the two wins, Molloy is now 16-7 overall and 12-2 in the ECC.
In game one, senior Stephen Giambra (Milford, Conn.) had two hits and two runs batted in, and sophomore Jacob Rich (Northwood, N.H.) also had two hits and one RBI. As a team, UB had a total of 13 hits in the opener, but the host Lions scored five runs in the bottom of the first innings and never looked back.
In game two, junior Ryan Donnelly (Fairfield, Conn.) had two hits, as Bridgeport was limited to only a total of five in the contest. Donnelly finished with four total hits on the afternoon.
Up next, the Purple Knights will look to salvage the final game of the three-game conference series when they host Molloy on Sunday afternoon in Seaside Park. First pitch is set for 12 noon.
