North Florida Pitcher Tyler Moore was unhittable today, but he could not go the distance. At the point Moore was taken out to star tthe ninth the Bulls had put only one man on base, via a walk in the seventh. Ron Torgalski's squad would make short work of the Osprey's bull pen putting up six hits and three runs in the ninth Inning.
Going into the ninth Northern Florida held a two nothing lead on two unearned runs scored back in the bottom of the 4th.
The ninth would start off with a lead off by Scarcello who was moved along to second by a Kwitzer single. Nick Sinay laid down a perfect bunt which moved the Buffalo batters and put him on first base. After a couple of quick outs the bases were loaded and Buffalo still trailed 2-0.
A Richards single would score two runs and move Sinay to third base. The Tony Mallaro knocked in the go ahead run.
Buffalo handed the ball over to Ben Hartz hoping to hold onto their slight 3-2 lead. Hartz was hit for a double right off the bat and after a bit of small ball North Florida tied the game at 3. Kevin Hughes came in to mop up and send the game into extra innings.
In the extra frames UB was able to get lead off hits but the Bulls could not capitalize. In the 11th a leadoff led to a fielders choice and a double play. In the 12th Mallaro led off with a hit and made it two third on a couple of sacrifice plays. But a strikeout ended the scoring chance.
North Florida made Buffalo pay with leadoff homer by Alex Bacon in the bottom of the frame.
UB went 1-2 on the weekend and sit at 7-3 on the season. Both of their losses are owed to fielding problems which need to be addressed before conference play begins.
