FORT MYERS, Fla. --- The Colby College baseball team finished up a trip to Florida with a 5-7 record and almost came away with six wins after earning a 2-1 win over Plymouth State in the first game Saturday and then losing a rough 10-8 second game on a walk-off grand slam home run by the Panthers in the bottom of the seventh inning.

Connor Sullivan went the distance in the first game, allowing six hits and just the one run for Colby. Sullivan and Plymouth State starter Bobby Chatfield both threw four scoreless innings to start the contest. The Mules scored two runs in the bottom of the fifth inning, one coming in on an RBI single by Jake Kramer.

Plymouth State (4-10) led 5-2 going into the seventh inning of the nightcap. The Mules rallied for six runs to take an 8-5 advantage and were three outs from finishing the trip at 6-6 and a win in the finale. The Panthers loaded the bases without the benefit of a hit after two hit batters and a walk. A Plymouth State single brought home one run and then Rew Wilson followed with the grand slam to end the contest.
