CMCC 4, NEW ENGLAND 3: Rolando Rodriguez scored on a passed ball to give Central Maine Community College a walkoff win over the University of New England’s club team in Auburn.

In the bottom of the seventh inning, Rodriguez was hit by a pitch, then stole second. With Jimmy Reed at-bat and two outs, Rodriguez stole third base. Reed drew a walk, and UNE’s Riley Frost’s fourth ball went past the catcher, allowing Rodriguez to run home for a stand-up, game-winning run.

The Mustangs tied the game with a pair of runs in the bottom of the sixth. Caden Truman singled in Jake Arel, and Corey Armstrong popped into a double play, but Stefan Lesco to make it 3-3.

Arel (team-high two hits) also scored in the first inning to give CMCC an early 1-0 lead, but the Nor’easters responded with three runs in the third on an RBI single by Clayton Nyiri and a two-run single by Ben Lehane.

Rhen Trinadade pitched the final three innings, holding UNE hitless and striking out two batters, to earn the win.
