Merrimack baseball team suffers heartbreaking loss

WALTHAM — Down 5-0 with two outs and nobody on in the seventh, Bentley University rallied for six runs, including two with two out in the ninth, for a 6-5 walk-off win over Merrimack College.

Merrimack (14-13, 2-4 NE-10 NE) jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the first after stringing together four consecutive hits and added to its lead with three runs in the fourth, the last two unearned.

The Bentley bullpen kept the Warriors off the scoreboard over the final five innings, including 2.2 scoreless innings by freshman Nick Taber.

(Eastham/Nauset Reg. HS), who survived four hits and two walks. Classmate and former high school teammate Ray Rowell (Wellfleet/Nauset Reg. HS) came in to record the final out in the ninth, stranding a runner on second, and he earned credit for his first career win.

Hedden’s effort for naught

NORTH ANDOVER — The Merrimack College women’s lacrosse team fell to 2-10 overall on the season, as the Warriors dropped an 11-5 final to Mercy College in non-conference play at Martone-Mejail Field.

The Warriors got on the board in the early minutes of the contest as sophomore Shealyn Anthony tallied her 10th goal of the season off a free position shot. Just five minutes later, freshman Clare Blomberg found the back of the net off a nice pass from sophomore Aubrie Stouffer.

However, Mercy battled back. Senior Inna Hedden (Woodbine, Md.) made nine saves in the loss, while Jillian Rocco had five stops to pick up the victory.

Merrimack returns to action on Saturday as the Warriors host No. 4 New Haven. Opening draw is scheduled for 12 p.m
