FT. LAUDERDALE, Fla. – Palm Beach Atlantic baseball hit I-95 again Tuesday evening to travel once again to Nova Southeastern. Unfortunately for the Sailfish, the results of their second trip south in three days was also unsuccessful, with the host Sharks winning 10-3 from the NSU Baseball Complex.
Fans were treated with a tight contest early on, with neither team having much luck at the plate through the first three innings. NSU, however, came alive in the middle portion of the game, using back-to-back three run innings in the fourth and fifth frames to jump ahead, and then adding on four more runs over the next three innings for insurance.
Palm Beach Atlantic mustered together some offense in the last few innings, with Andres Vazquez lacing a two-run single to right field in the eighth inning and Joel Buchko coming through with an RBI single in the ninth.
Junior Brian Walker led PBA at the plate with a 3-for-5 ballgame, and also had help from senior Ryan Drew (2-for-4, 2B) and freshman Mac Hessney (2-for-3, BB, R) along the way.
The end of a six-game-in-six-day swing begins Wednesday at high noon as Palm Beach Atlantic travels north to take on Rollins College in Winter Park, Fla.
