ISU falls to Canisius in first of three-game road series

BUFFALO, N.Y. — The Indiana State baseball team fell behind early and never could get the lead as host Canisius posted a 3-1 victory in the opener of a three-game series Friday at Demske Sports Complex.

The Sycamores (24-11) and Griffins (21-13) will meet again at 2 p.m. today, but the venue will switch to Dwyer Stadium in Batavia, N.Y. The same two teams also will play Sunday back at Demske Sports Complex in a noon start.

Junior left-hander David Staggs (5-3) went 7 2/3 innings in giving up three runs on seven hits while striking out seven batters and walking three. Nick Kolarik took over and got the final out in the bottom of the eighth inning on a groundout.

The game remained scoreless until the bottom of the fourth when Canisius scored with two outs as Jose Torralba was hit by a pitch, Anthony Massicci walked and Connor Panas singled in Torralba. The Golden Griffins added one more in the fourth on singles from Jesse Pushcheck, Jimmy Luppens and Mike Krische.

ISU had its chances, putting runners in scoring position in the first, second, sixth and seventh innings. However, it was not until the eighth that the Sycamores finally scored. Mike Fitzgerald hit a one-out double to deep center field and advanced to third on Manuel Estevez’s single. Fitzgerald tallied the Sycamores’ only run on a wild pitch.

Canisius added one more run in its half of the eighth. Massicci and Panas walked and advanced on Shane Zimmer’s sacrifice bunt, with Massicci later scoring on Puscheck’s groundout.

Fitzgerald finished 4 for 4 at the plate. He’s now hit safely in seven straight at-bats. The Sycamore catcher had two doubles and two singles for the day. Estevez added two singles.
