The Spartans lost both of their games on Friday, April 19 when they took on #3/4 Southern Maine for their first home games of the season.

Southern Maine, who improved to 11-2 in the LEC with the sweep, won the first game9-5, and the second game 9-7.

Castleton was up early in game one. The score was 4-2 after three innings. The first inning saw Junior first-baseman Davis Mikell crush one out of the park for his fifth homer of the season.

The fourth inning saw Spartans pitcher Joe Gratton give up four runs to give the Southern Maine Huskies the lead and they never looked back.

The Spartans fought back, scoring one run in the sixth inning, but it wasn’t enough to fight back. Southern Maine reliever Henry Curran earned his first save of the season by closing out the game for the Huskies.

Game two saw a pitcher’s duel until the fourth inning. The Huskies posted a five-run inning to open the scoring in the fourth.

Castleton scored two runs in the fifth inning but found themselves down 8-2 going into the bottom of the eighth inning. But the Spartans weren’t going down without a fight.

Castleton proceeded to score five runs to bring the score within one heading into the ninth inning.

The big blow came off of the bat of Freshman infielder Brayden Millet. He hit a two-run home run to cap off the Spartans’ monster inning.

It was once again not enough though, as the Huskies scored another run in the ninth. The game ended 9-7.

The Spartans have been dealing with a rough patch as of late, going 3-7 over their last ten games. They sit in sixth place in the LEC with a conference record of 5-6.

There are eight more games left before the LEC conference tournament. The Spartans will look to improve their record and momentum heading into the last leg of the season.

The Spartans return to action tonight as they travel to Colby-Sawyer. First pitch is scheduled for 3:30 p.m.
