Baseball Doubles up Nyack, 4-2


- Score: Assumption 4, Nyack 2

- Records: Assumption (2-4, 0-0 NE10); Nyack (3-2-1, 0-0 ECC)

- Location: Winter Park, Fla.

- The Lead: The Assumption College baseball team rebounded from its extra innings loss to Nyack yesterday, scoring all four runs in the first three innings to split the two games.


- Senior Tom Horstkotte (Milford, Mass. / St. John's) recorded a quality start on the mound for Assumption, tossing 7.0 innings while allowing two runs on six hits and eight strikeouts to earn the win. Freshman Brendan Desautels (Holden, Mass. / Holy Name Central Catholic) came on in relief and shut the door on Nyack, pitching 2.0 innings unscathed to earn his first collegiate save, not allowing a baserunner.

- The Hounds took a 2-0 lead in the second inning when junior Hunter Tralli (Berlin, Conn. / Northwest Catholic) worked a two out walk to start the rally. Classmate Kevin Quinlivan (Shrewsbury, Mass. / St. John's) then roped a double to drive home Tralli, before freshman Andrew Moccia (Lynn, Mass. / Lynn Classical) subsequently singled to send home Quinlivan, giving the freshman his first collegiate RBI.

- Assumption doubled its lead just an inning later as senior Quinn Moynihan (Worcester, Mass. / Lipscomb University) led-off with a single and sophomore Derek Adamson (Chelmsford, Mass. / Chelmsford) bunted him over to second. Senior Andrew Jaehnig (Quincy, Mass. / Boston College) then tattooed a double to record an RBI, which was followed by a single by classmate Jake Byrne (Grafton, Mass. / Saint John's) which sent Jaehnig home, pushing the Hound lead to 4-0.

- That was all Horstkotte needed, as the senior allowed a single run in the fourth, before surrendering one more in the sixth to earn the win.


- Moynihan finished the game going 2-for-3 with a walk and a run, while sophomore Jared Brescia (Brentwood, N.H. / Exeter) went a perfect 2-for-2 to go with a pair of walks.

- Byrne connected on a two singles to go 2-for-4 with a RBI, while Quinlivan and Jaehnig each tallied a double, a RBI and a run.
