Hartford Hawks top Mason baseball 4-3 in game 3, but Patriots take series 2-1 over weekend

The Hartford Hawks defeated the Mason baseball team today 4-3 in 12 innings. The rain, which started in the 8th inning, did not stop these teams from finishing this one off.

Hartford outfielder Ryan Lukach drove in the game-winning run with a short fly ball over the outstretched glove of Mason’s Tucker Tobin. The Patriots had a chance in the bottom of the 12th when Ray Toto reached base. A fly ball to right field ended their hopes to win the game but they still took the weekend series 2-1.

Game 2 called in seventh inning as Mason baseball tops Hartford, 1-0

Incoming cold weather shortened the second leg of the double header to seven innings, but it yielded another 1-0 Mason win.

Third Basemen Blaise Fernandez put the Patriots ahead in the first inning with a line drive double into right-center field. Josh Leemhuis came around to score after he had walked earlier in the inning. This was a pleasant surprise from the game before where it took until the 6th inning for Mason to plate their first run. However, a couple of double plays ensured that this would be their only run in the game.
