DUNDALK, MD - The CCBC Dundalk Lions fell to the Anne Arundel Community College Riverhawks 8-6 on Thursday April 26. Overpowering the Lions with a six-run third inning, Brady Ward (2-4, 2B, 2RBIs) delivered a two-run double to start the scoring for the Riverhawks followed by a grand slam delivered by Dustin Gosnell (2-4, HR, 5RBIs). Riverhawks LHP Ryan Richardson was in command for most of the game, pitching six innings, allowing only 3 earned runs, and striking out 10 batters to earn the win.

The Lions were down 8-2 until Bryant Gutierrez (Abraham Lincoln | Queens, N.Y., 1-4, HR, 3RBIs) delivered a three-run home run in the sixth inning to cut the lead to three. The Lions were able to score another run in the nonth inning in an attempt to get a late rally going, but it wasn't enough. Despite giving up five earned runs, Antonio Fernandez (John Bowne | Queens, N.Y.) struck out seven batters in six innings and got out of several tough jams in the first and fifth innings. Creed Mourey came in relief for the final 3 innings and gave up 0 runs and struck out six batters.
