NSIC Midweek – Mary Likes It On Top – 4/9/09


We’ve just finished our first set of mid-week Northern Sun Conference D2 college baseball games and we are down to 1 team being undefeated in Conference play.  It’s the Mary Marauders who sit alone at 2-0!  Yes, they got there by beating lowly Minnesota Crookston but nevertheless they are #1 in the NSIC and they can feel a sense of pride no matter how the season ends.  Clip this graphic out Mary – nicely done!

In games over the past 2 days –

  • As mentioned, Mary beat Crookston by scores of 19-4 & 11-4 and were led by 3 home runs by Tyler Liffrig who was 6 for 7 with 6 RBI’s.  Liffrig Launches Marauders
  • Minnesota State swept a doubleheader from Minnesota Duluth by scores of 2-1 and 9-4.  They were led in game 1 by another excellent outing by pitcher Patrick Lenton who moves to 7-1 on the season.  Mavericks Subdue Bulldogs
  • Upper Iowa got a sweep over Winona State who had previously been unbeaten in Conference play.  They won the first game 16-15 in 9 innings after trailing 15-5 entering the bottom of the 6th inning.  They then completed the sweep with a 5-0 game led by pitcher Gavin Mason who went all 7 innings giving up just 3 hits.  Peacocks Sweep Warriors
  • Bemidji State was demolished by Southwest Minnesota State in the first game of their doubleheader yesterday by a score of 17-0.  They then returned the favor winning the nightcap 16-10 which included 9 runs in the top of the 7th inning.  SMSU had 11 home runs in the 2 games but only gained a split.  Big Comeback Earns BSU Split

    I know Mary has lost several pitchers to injury. They do make contact on the ball regularly and will make you play defense. I am sure the lack of pitching depth will show up sooner rather than later.
