Game 1: Albertus Magnus, 7 Dean College 1
Powered by three hits and three RBI from John Olszyk, Albertus Magnus used three big innings to top Dean College in non-league baseball action.
In addition to Olszyk, the Falcons got two hits and two RBI from Tyrique Harris, including an RBI triple to put them on the board in the bottom of the second.
After Harris himself scored on an error, the Bulldogs sliced the lead in half when Joshua Cerretani (Peabody, Mass.) scampered home on a wild pitch in the top of the fourth.
Olszyk then delivered a big blow – a two-run double to left that made the score 4-1 in the bottom of the fourth.
Harris drove in another run in the fifth when he reached on an error and then another run came home on a Michael Browne fielder's choice. Olszyk capped the three-run fifth and all the scoring when he sent an RBI double to center that brought in Browne, putting Dean away.
Brandon Fowler went the distance for the Falcons, allowing just six hits and one run while striking out six.
Meanwhile for Dean, Trevor Smith (Tsaile, Ariz.) took the loss after going 3.1 innings and yielding seven hits and three earned runs.
Game 2: Dean College 5, Albertus Magnus 3
Colton Fitzsimmons (Fairhaven, Mass.) spun a four-hitter, allowing no earned runs to go along with a career-best seven strikeouts and Dean College won for the first time in 2019, topping Albertus Magnus, 5-3, in the nightcap of a non-league twinbill.
Dean moved in front when Sharnick delivered another single that once again plated Dinsdale, who led off the inning with a single to center.
The Bulldogs doubled their lead in the fifth when Giuseppe Casabianca (Yonkers, N.Y.) opened the inning with a walk and then went to second on another Dinsdale base hit. They both came around to score when Sharnick smacked a single to left center, making the score 4-1.
Landon Fish (New Port Richey, Fla.) tacked on another run when he blasted his second homerun of the trip in the sixth inning.
The Falcons did put two unearned runs on the board with two outs in the top of the seventh to close the gap, but Fitzsimmons shut the door when he was able to induce a game-ending groundout.
Dinsdale collected a career-high four hits and scored three runs from his leadoff spot, while Sharnick had three hits and four RBI.
