NORTHBOROUGH, MASS: The Anna Maria College baseball team lost 7-4 to visiting New England College on Sunday afternoon at the Baseball Sports Complex in Northborough, Massachusetts.
- Date: Sunday, March 21, 2021
- Score: NEC 7, Anna Maria 4
- Records: NEC (1-5), Anna Maria (6-4)
HOW IT HAPPENED:
- Senior Nick Genatossio (Sutton, MA) got the AMCATS on the board first in the first inning with a ground-ruled RBI double to give Anna Maria a 1-0 lead. Then in the bottom of the third, trailing 3-1, Genatossio continued to spark the offense by plating two more runs off a single to the right side to tie the game at 3-3. Genatossio now has six RBI in just the last two games.
- Trailing 6-3 in the bottom of the sixth, senior Greg Gehring (Southold, NY) singled down the leftfield run to plate another run. But that would prove as close as the AMCATS would get.

- Six Anna Maria pitchers totaled 13 strikeouts against N.E.C.
- Anna Maria returns to action on Thursday when they host Rhode Island College in a 3:00 p.m. game.
