The wind and some uncharacteristic poor Husky defense lead to a 16-9 Huskies loss Monday vs. EWG. Joe Simeone started for the Huskies and went 2.1 inning.
Simeone appeared to pitch himself out of a jam in the second, when with 1 out and the bases loaded, induced two grounds balls; both led to errors opening the way to an 8 run second. The Huskies mounted a comeback with 4 runs in the fourth on doubles by Josh Hunt, Matt Natale and a fielders choice by Brent Millard.
The Huskies added an additional run in the fifth on a single by Jared Ramos but that was the end of the scoring.
Matt Natale and Cody Stanzione pitched well in relief. Joe Simeone had two more hits to lead the Huskies.
