SALISBURY, Md. – The Salisbury University baseball team defeated Manhattanville College 12-6 Sunday to give Head Coach Troy Brohawn his 100th career win.
Brohawn’s overall record is 100-32-1 in four seasons. He becomes the third coach in SU baseball history to win 100 games.
The Sea Gulls scored four runs in the second inning after going down 3-0 early. The first run for the Gulls was scored off a sacrifice fly by Justin Meekins that sent Scott Ardoin home. In the next at-bat, Kyle Canavan sent Jimmy Adkins across off a sacrifice bunt for the second run. Jay Perry stepped up next and hit a two-run homer with Ron Villone on second base.
SU added three more runs in the third inning. Adkins hit a ground out to send Matt Padeway home from third. Ardoin scored two at-bats later off a passed ball. Meekins notched the last run of the inning with a double.
Salisbury’s three runs in the eighth inning deterred any late push by Manhattanville. Perry hit a double to right field to score Canavan and give him his third RBI on the day. Perry himself scored two at-bats later off a Colby Dean single. Dean scored from second on a double steal thanks to a throwing error by the Manhattanville catcher for the Gulls’ final run.
The win on the day went to Jack Cheney, who in relief struck out five in five innings. The Gulls stole nine bases and hit five sacrifice bunts as a team.
Salisbury will host Virginia Wesleyan University on March 13 at 3:30 p.m. The March 12 game against Johns Hopkins University has postponed due to weather; the make-up day has not been announced yet.
