BROOKLINE, Mass. – Arman Sidhu belted an RBI single in the fifth inning to lift Northeastern University to a 3-2 victory over the University of Maine in a rain-shortened game Tuesday.
The teams waited through a 32-minute delay before the game was officially called.
The Huskies (30-18-1) scored in the first inning when Matt Morizio belted a home run to right center, his fifth of the season and second in the last three games. The Black Bears (24-21) answered back in the second as Bobby Brown hit an RBI single that scored Joel Barrett.
Tied 1-1 in the fourth, Dan Milano drew a walk and scored when Josh Porter doubled down the left field line and left fielder Kevin McAvoy mishandled the ball, allowing it to get by him. Sidhu followed with an RBI single to left that brought Porter in.
Maine scored again in the fifth when Trevor Smith walked in a run, but Curt Smith flied out to right, leaving the bases loaded and ending the threat. The Huskies came out for the sixth inning, but the sky opened up with heavy rain.
The Huskies will play their final game of the regular season when they face Geoge Mason on Thursday.
