Baseball: Eagles Drop Pair To Mitchell In Harvey Woods Field Farewell

Nashua, N.H. – College athletics on the Daniel Webster College campus is now no more.

While the Daniel Webster baseball program still has three games remaining before closing the history books for good, the final home games at Harvey Woods Field went to visiting Mitchell, as the Mariners posted a NECC sweep with scores of 15-0 and 10-1 in NECC action in raw and drizzly conditions Monday.

Kyle Hodgdon (Cheshire, Conn.) became the final Eagle to register a hit on the field, connecting for a leadoff single to center to lead off the bottom of the fifth of game two as he finished 2 for 3 on the day. Mike Pelletier (Pelham, N.H.), meanwhile scored the final Eagle run coming home in the bottom of the seventh on an error, after reaching on an error and stealing second.
