UMass gave up 22 hits, seven walks and committed three errors on Friday against Charlotte. It lost the game, 18-3.
It only got worse for the Minutemen Saturday.
This time, Charlotte pounded out 29 hits, drew 10 walks and UMass committed six errors. For those counting at home, that adds up to 45 baserunners.
And a 24-6 beat down.
Rob Lyerly had one of the best games you'll ever see for the 49ers: 6-for-6, 6 RBI, 4 R, 3 HR, 2 2B, 3B and a walk.
In the ninth inning, with three home runs already, Lyerly drove a ball into deep left-center field. At first it appeared that he had his fourth home run of the afternoon, but it fell into the gap for a triple.
These teams meet up again Sunday at noon.
