Central Michigan sweeps UB

College Roundup

AMHERST — Central Michigan hurlers Ty Dunham and Josh Collmenter each threw shutouts Saturday as the University at Buffalo baseball team dropped a Mid-American Conference doubleheader to the visiting Chippewas at Amherst Audubon Field. CMU won the opener 5-0 and then shutout the Bulls 8-0 in the second contest.

Collmenter allowed only two hits and struck out 14 batters in eight innings of work in the second game after Dunham tossed a two-hitter in the opener.

Freshmen Jacob Rosenbeck (Medina) and James Piazza (Williamsville North) had the only hits on the day for UB. They both singled in each game.

Freshman Steve Geltz (Wilson) took the loss in the second of the twin bill as he allowed five earned runs in five innings of work.

On Sunday, Kurt Lauscher pitched seven innings of four-hit baseball to send UB to its third straight loss by shutout, as Central Michigan prevailed 12-0.

Lauscher (4-1) struck out seven for the Chippewas (12-9 overall, 3-0 Mid-American Conference). UB (4-17, 0-3) got two hits from Mike Folli in defeat.

This is the first time in UB baseball history that the team has failed to score a run in three straight games.

The Bulls open their Big 4 schedule at 2 p.m. Wednesday when they meet Canisius at the Demske Sports Complex.

Niagara (10-10 overall, 3-0 MAAC) ran its winning streak to six games, outscoring the Gaels 28-8 in the series.

Niagara is at Binghamton at 4 p.m. Tuesday for a non-conference doubleheader.
