STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. – The Quinnipiac University baseball team lost to Wagner, 10-1, in the fourth and final game of its Northeast Conference series at Richmond County Bank Ballpark in Staten Island, N.Y.). With the loss, Quinnipiac drops to 2-11 overall and 1-3 in the NEC while Wagner improves to 6-12 overall and 3-1 in league play.
Kyle Nisson (Wallingford, Conn.) continued to swing a hot back, going 2-for-3 with a run scored as he finished with a team-best .700 (7-10) for the series with three-straight multiple-hit games. Zak Palmer (Mahwah, N.J.) was also 2-for-3 with an RBI, as he turned in his fourth multiple-hit game in his last five outings, giving him 11 hits over his last five games. Freshman shortstop Scott Donaghue (Marlboro, N.J.) was also 2-for-3, for his second straight two-hit game.
Sophomore Nick Fabrizio (Peabody, Mass.) was perfect for three innings, retiring Wagner's batters in order over the first three frames. He was then tagged for six runs over the next 1 2/3 innings as the Seahawks wrapped-out eight hits.
In the top of the 6th, Donaghue led off the inning with a single, before freshman Vincent Guglietti (East Haven, Conn.) hit into a double play. Nisson then followed with a single up the middle before moving to second base on a single by Gabe Guerino (Milford, Conn.). Palmer's single up the middle scored Nisson with Quinnipiac's lone run of the game.
