HAMDEN, CT - Senior Chris Gloor kept the Sacred Heart baseball team hitless before Paul Schmidt broke up the no-hitter with one out in the eighth inning, and the Quinnipiac bats gave the lefty plenty of support to help the Bobcats to a 10-3 win Friday afternoon.
Gloor lasted 8 1/3 innings, allowing two runs on five hits while striking out eight. He retired the first nine batters he faced before he hit Mike Drowne with a pitch. He then retired the next 10 batters he faced before walking Jeff Hanson in the 7th inning.
The Bobcats got all the runs they would need when they erupted for five runs on six hits in the second inning. Michael Marmo singled up the middle to leadoff the inning before moving third on a double by Gabe Guerino Joe Poletsky then singled home Marmo for the game's first run as Poletsky picked up his team-leading 26th RBI of the season. After Ben Farina struck out for the first out, Mickey Amanti (Waterford, Conn.) flew out to right field, scoring Guerino from third.
Ryan Ullrich singled to put runners on first and second. Migani singled to right field to score Poletsky from second base as Ullrich advanced to third. After Migani moved to second on the throw to the plate, Doyle singled to left field to score Ullrich and Migani to give Quinnipiac a 5-0 lead.
The Bobcats, 14-26 overall and 7-10 in the NEC, scored three more times in the third off SHU starter Chris Barthel to make it 8-0.
Schmidt stole second after his single in the eighth inning and went to third on an infield single by Hunter Phillips. Steve Tedesco's sacrifice bunt scored Schmidt as Sacred Heart put their first run of the game on the board to make the score 8-1.
The two teams will continue the four-game series tomorrow with a doubleheader starting at noon.
