PUNTA GORDA, Fla. – Mount St. Mary's built an early lead and never looked back on the way to avoiding a sweep in the finale of a three-game series with the St. Bonaventure baseball team in a 16-6 decision Thursday afternoon.
The Mount (2-4) led 6-0 after two innings to seize control.
The Bonnies (2-3) got a run back on a double off the bat of Brandon Henshaw that scored Jake Miknis who had walked to lead off the inning. Another Bona run crossed the plate on a wild pitch in the fourth.
Mount St. Mary's added four runs in each the fourth and sixth innings, however, to end thoughts of a Bonnies rally.
In all, 21 players saw time for the Brown and White.
The Bonnies return to action Friday morning in the first of a three-game series with Western Michigan in the Sunshine State.
