August 5, 2012 - Futures Collegiate Baseball League (FCBL)
Old Orchard Beach News Release

Lynn, Massachusetts- The Mavericks fall to the Navigators in a 7-inning affair in Lynn on Sunday afternoon 3-2.

Crayton Bare, the left-handed pitcher from Baylor University, threw six innings of two-run baseball. Bare gave up seven hits, three walks, and struck out six in a no decision. The game was tied at two when Bare left the game at the end of the sixth inning. Bentley University's Nate Witkowski picked up the win after shutting down the Mavericks in the top half of the seventh. Witkowski gave up two walks and struck out two batters.

Tim Hendricks (Benedictine) hit the game-winning walk-off RBI in the seventh on a sacrifice fly ball. Aaron Silbar of Columbia University had a strong 2-for-3 performance driving in a run in the second inning with an RBI triple. Patrick Raley (Charlotte) enjoyed a 2-for-3 game as well, hitting an RBI double in the second.

The Mavericks starter, Anyelo Roman (Dakota State), pitched six and two thirds innings in a loss. Roman is known for his bat around the FCBL, but on Sunday, he pitched marvelously for the Mavs giving up all three runs scored by North Shore while striking out five batters. He also walked three batters in his first FCBL start on the pitching mound.

Luke Fernandes (Boston College) enjoyed his best night in his short FCBL career going 2-for-3 on Sunday afternoon. Luke also had his first career stolen base wearing the collegiate Mavericks jersey. Of course, Luke rose up through the USA Mavericks AAU program on his way to dawning the Seacoast Mavericks jersey this summer. Scott Dejong (UConn) went 2-for-4 on Sunday collecting the team's lone RBI. With Sunday's RBI, Dejong now has 30 RBIs on the season.
