Heidelberg Edges Baseball, 5-4

Port Charlotte, Fla. (3/9/18) – Heidelberg University used a two run seventh frame to edge the Kean University baseball team by the final of 5-4 on Friday afternoon at the Snowbird Classic.

Matt Krupa was 1-for-3 with two runs scored and a double to lead Kean (6-4).

The Cougars scratched a single run across in the second as Krupa roped a one out double.  He would move to third on a groundout and crossed the plate on a wild pitch. 

The Berg (6-2) tied things up in the sixth with a bases loaded fielder's choice from Marc Ochoa.  Kean regained the lead in the same inning as Krupa reached on an error and promptly stole second.  Two sacrifices brought him home for the 2-1 lead.

Heidelberg took their first lead with a two spot in the sixth, but Kean answered again taking the lead back with two in the same frame.  Nick Polizzano registered an RBI single and John Carello added an RBI double to go ahead 4-3.

Matt Psychas gave Heidelberg the lead for good with a two RBI single in the seventh.

Kean returns right back to action on Saturday morning against Baldwin Wallace.
