The Hilbert College baseball team fell in a double header to Frostburg State University by scores of 15-4 and 18-0. The losses drop the Hawk's record to 3-17 overall and 1-7 and in AMCC play.
Game 1 was going Hilbert’s way through the fourth inning, as the Hawks held a 2-0 over the Bobcats. However, the tide would turn on Hilbert, and fast. Frostburg plated 7 runs in the fifth to go ahead 7-2. The Hawks would, try and mount a comeback; with two more runs in the bottom of the sixth, to pull within three runs at 7-4. But an eight run seventh inning, grounded the Hawks for good.
Junior Matt Begeal (Northville, NY/Wells) was 3-3 at the plate and scored two runs for Hilbert. Senior Brandon Brown (Rochester, NY/Irondequoit) was 2-3 with two runs scored and also recorded an RBI for the Hawks.
In game two, the Hawks managed just three hits and could not mount a charge against the Bobcats.
The Hawks return to action April 14 to host local rival Medaille College.
