Misericordia Drops Opener Of Super Regional
DALLAS — The scenario couldn’t have played out any better for the Misericordia Cougars. Seven innings from starter Ian McCole, a fresh bullpen and a tie game.
On the other side of the field, Washington & Jefferson was in the same situation. A solid outing from starter Ben Marsico, two outs from the middle man before turning things over to relief ace Mitchell Taufer.
For the Cougars, though, closer Kyle Melahn struggled with his command and paid the price in the bottom of the eighth when the Presidents scored five times to win the first game of the best-of-three South Super Regional, 8-3, on Friday afternoon at Tambur Field.
