Buffalo headed to North Eastern with a chance to get back above .500 but despite a near perfect showing by Alec Tuohy the best they can hope for is getting back within a game should they win the next two.
Tuohy, a junior, went seven innings allowing just two hits and striking out a seven batters. Logan Harasta also put together two hitless innings before closer Mike Kaelin came in and pitched the final 2.2 innings.
But the Bulls' batters were unable to sting together enough offense to take advantage of Tuohy's day.
UB managed only five hits and never did they manage two string two hits together in an inning. They were also stumped by a Northeastern pitching staff that struck out 12 UB batters and allowed only one walk.
Despite that UB twice, in extra innings, had a man on third with one out and both times failed to score a run.
The Huskies won the game in the 12th inning when Kaelin walked Northeastern's Cam Walsh to open the inning. After he stole second base Zach Perry hit a two out single up the middle to score Walsh from second and give Northeastern their eighth win of the season.
The two teams square off tomorrow afternoon at 1pm for the second game of their three-game series. Charlie Sobieraski (2-1, 7.06 ERA) will take the mound for the Bulls.
