DANVERS, Mass. (March 17, 2018) – First on Saturday afternoon, the Franklin Pierce University baseball team built a 4-0 lead on the road. Then it let it all get away. Next, it put itself in position to succeed, by loading the bases in a tie game in the ninth. Finally, the Ravens utilized a pair of Merrimack missteps to cash in two runs and let senior right-hander Ryan Covelle (Medford, Mass.) close the door in the bottom half of the inning. It all added up to a 6-4 win for the Ravens over Merrimack, in non-conference play on the campus of St. John’s Prep.

DANVERS, Mass. (March 16, 2018) – Battling the elements on a frigid New England afternoon and, at one point, being literally battered on the mound as well, senior right-hander John Amendola (Wallingford, Conn.) kept hanging up zeroes on Friday. The only blemish came in the bottom of the third, as he otherwise spun eight innings of six-hit ball. The offense of the Franklin Pierce University baseball team evened things in the fifth, but struggled with execution for portions of the proceedings on the road against Merrimack, though the Ravens ultimately found enough to get the job done. Junior left fielder Brad Roberto (San Diego, Calif.) cashed in sophomore second baseman J.R. DiSarcina (Barnstable, Mass.) with the go-ahead run in the top of the ninth, and senior right-hander Ryan Covelle (Medford, Mass.) shut things down in the bottom half of the inning, as the Ravens dealt the Warriors a 2-1 defeat in non-conference play.
