A late inning home run by No. 19 Davenport (Mich.) was the difference, as the Union College baseball team dropped their 2015 season opener on Friday, 3-2, at Jerry Carey Stadium.
In the first three innings of the contest, Bulldog starting pitcher Matt Hasenbeck (JR/Eureka, Mo.) was terrific, wiggling out of jams in both the second and third innings to keep things scoreless. Equally impressive was Davenport starter Corey Murphy, who held Union scoreless through three, as well.
In the fourth, Davenport broke the scoreless tie with a run, making it 1-0. However, Union answered in the bottom of the frame, as Zach Dillman (SR/Cincinnati, Ohio) knocked home Justin Elder (SR/Seven Mile, Ohio) on an RBI single with one out, knotting the game up at 1-1 after four innings.
