YU Baseball Team Produces at the Plate But Drops Two Games to Purchase

(yumacs.com) The Yeshiva University baseball team’s bats came to life on Sunday afternoon, but it was not enough as the Maccabees dropped both games to the host Panthers of Purchase College by scores of 15-4 and 6-1.

In the opening game, Yeshiva (0-12, 0-9 Skyline) trailed 4-1, but had runners on second and third with one out in the top of the fourth. Sophomore third baseman Charles Bendheim lined an 0-2 pitch over the center fielder’s head and all the way to the wall. Not only did his hit drive in sophomore catcher Shai Rosalimsky and junior first baseman David Kreisberg, but Bendheim also ended up scoring thanks to an error in the outfield. Just like that, the game was tied at four runs apiece.

However, the Panthers (13-15, 7-11 Skyline) responded with seven runs in the home half of the fourth to take a commanding lead that would not be surrendered. Purchase added one run in the fifth, and three more in the sixth, to secure the game one victory.

For the Maccabees, Kreisberg had two singles in three at-bats, while sophomore shortstop Ari Rosenberg went 2-for-4 with a double and added a stolen base. Rosalimsky scored two runs, produced a single and drew a pair of walks, while also throwing out a runner trying to steal second. Sophomore right fielder David Price earned a base on balls.

On the mound, senior pitcher Cody Hennequin earned his second victory of the season for Purchase.

In game two, senior pitcher Dovie Solomon had a solid outing on the mound, pitching a complete game and giving up just four earned runs on seven hits and striking out a batter. However, it was sophomore pitcher Ryan Kozersky who ended up earning the win, for Purchase, by going six innings and giving up no earned runs.

The Panthers tacked on two runs in the bottom of the second and added four more runs in the home half of the sixth, to put the game out of reach for Yeshiva. The Maccabees got one run back in the top of the seventh, thanks to Rosalimsky’s two-out RBI single to left center that scored Kreisberg from third. It was not enough as Purchase went on to earn the game two victory, 6-1.

Bendheim had a strong game at the plate, going 2-for-3 and stealing a base. Senior center fielder David Hanelin hit a single and drew a walk, while second-year left fielder Joey Kalish reached base via a walk. Junior infielder Judah Blonder and Price each reached base with a single.
