BENNINGTON, Vt. – Southern Vermont College fell 7-0 to SUNY Oneonta Wednesday afternoon in a rain-shortened, six-inning, non-conference contest at Bill Epstein Field.
The visiting Red Dragons scored four times in the second before adding another three in the next two frames. The 7-0 tally stood into the seventh when Oneonta put up a lone run in the top half of the box; the rain would become too heavy, however, for the inning to complete as the game was called with the frame in progress getting cancelled out.
SVC (7-17) continues its four-day home stand on Thursday with a 1 p.m. New England Collegiate Conference doubleheader against Becker College.
Southern Vermont senior righty R.J. Henle (Plantation, Fla.) took the loss (0-1) while striking out three through the six official innings.
After a scoreless first, the Red Dragons put up four runs on three hits and a Mountaineer miscue. DuBois tallied a two-out single to right-center in the bottom of the second before moving around to third on an ensuing Oneonta error. That's where he would get left on base, however, for the visitors to keep it at 4-0.
A two-run dinger to right extended the Oneonta separation to six in the third, and the Red Dragons then put up another run in the fourth with a two-out double down the right field line. SVC stranded two runners in both the bottom of the fifth and sixth innings, and the game would then get wrapped up after Oneonta scored a run in the seventh that would end up not counting.
