Seahawks drop series with Tigers

TOWSON, Maryland – Towson senior righthander Charlie Cononie struck out nine and allowed just two base runners after the sixth inning, to lead the Tigers to a 9-4 series clinching win over visiting UNCW on Sunday at Schuerholz Park.

The Tigers improved to 6-12-1 overall and 2-4 in the league. The Seahawks dropped to 12-8 and 4-2.

For Cononie, it was a career-high eight innings pitched as he evened his record at 2-2. Although he allowed eight hits, he held UNCW to 0-7 at the plate with two out.

UNCW senior starter Justin Bradley (3-1) didn't make it into the third, lasting just two innings and being credited with four runs allowed on five walks and a pair of hits.

Hunter Ridge and Matt Campbell had two hits apiece for the Seahawks.

For Towson, Andrew Parker went 2-for-4 with two runs batted in and two stolen bases.

After UNCW opened the scoring with a RBI single by Ridge in the top of the first, Towson bounced back with a pair of runs in the first and second inning. Winter singled in a run in the first and Andrew Parker doubled in both runs in the second.

Ridge, who would finish with three runs batted in, added two more RBI's with a single in the third and a sac fly in the fifth to cut the deficit to 4-3.

Towson, however, would restore a three-run lead with runs in the sixth and seven innings off UNCW reliever Steven Davis.

UNCW surrendered three runs in the ninth, all unearned due to a pair of throwing errors.

Thomas Pope, who would lead UNCW with three hits, scored the final run of the game after leading off the ninth with a triple and scoring on pinch hitter Ryan LaGrange's sac fly one batter later.

The Seahawks look to get back on track on Tuesday when they visit nationally-ranked North Carolina for a 6 p.m. start.
