OTTAWA (Sep. 13, 2016) –
After six lead changes in Wednesday’s game at Heritage Park, the University of Ottawa Gee Gees pulled out a 5-4 win over Carleton after having lost in their first meeting last week.
The Gee Gees finally were the last to grab the lead after a strong sixth inning on an RBI single off Bannon by Austin Flannigan which gave them the late lead and the win.
Carleton’s lineup had no answer for Gee Gees reliever Roberto Suppa who held Carleton hitless over two innings, allowed no earned runs, walked one and struck out six.
Carleton’s Ethan Nodwell continued to bat well including three RBIs on two hits including a two-run homer in the third and a triple in the fifth inning but he was tagged out in scoring position in the seventh to end the Ravens chances.
Carleton starter Mike Bannon ended up on the wrong side of the pitching decision. Two of the runs charged to him were unearned on errors by Heffer and Burnside that could have made the difference.
While the Ravens (3-3) maintain their second place standing in the Northern Division behind a red-hot McGill squad (7-1), they now lead the Division in total errors (14) and average errors per game (2.3). Their gloves will have to match their hitting if they are going to be able to beat Concordia this Saturday in Montreal.
