SPRINGFIELD, Mass., March 29, 2003- Babson College junior right-hander Jason Kosow (Exeter, N.H.) gave up just seven hits and two earned runs in nine innings as the Beavers defeated Springfield College, 4-2, in the first game of a doubleheader on Saturday at Berry-Allen Field in the New England Women’s and Men’s Athletic Conference (NEWMAC) opener for both schools.

With the score tied 2-2 in the top of the ninth, Babson junior catcher Joe Kehoe (Hyde Park, Mass.) opened the inning with a double and, two batters later, scored the decisive run on an SC error. Babson junior center-fielder Mike Muccio (Northboro, Mass.) went 1-for-3 and drove in two runs.

In game two, Babson junior shortstop Matt Bigda (Shrewsbury, Mass.) went 2-for-4 with four RBI and three runs scored to help lead the Beavers to an 11-5 victory over the Pride. Bigda’s three run triple sparked a seven run fourth inning. Junior right-hander Jeff Heighington (Dracut, Mass.) went the distance and struck out eight to improve to 1-1 on the season.

SC’s Toby Cole went 2-for-4 with two RBI, and junior second baseman Dan Samia (North Adams, Mass.) collected two hits and scored twice.
