Northeastern faced William & Mary this weekend in its opening CAA series in Williamsburg, Virginia and earned a 2-1 series win. The Huskies won the first two games of the series but fell to the Tribe in the final game.

The Huskies (12-11) and Tribe (15-6) battled back-and-forth in their first game, with NU eventually taking a 7-6 win.

The game kicked off with a scoreless first inning for the Huskies, allowing William & Mary to pull ahead with two runs in the bottom half. Both teams continued to add runs and the Huskies briefly took the lead in the top of the sixth.

William & Mary again pulled ahead in the bottom of the sixth, but a three-run inside-the-park home run by Ian Fair in the ninth inning with the Huskies down to their last strike drove NU to victory.

The Huskies had a more definitive win on Saturday, taking the lead in the first inning and keeping it to earn a 9-4 win.

As usual, pitcher Sean Mellen stood out amongst the Huskies, as he struck out nine batters in six innings.

Both Michael Geaslen and Jake Farrell compiled three-hit games while Fair and Jake Rosen both added two hits.

The momentum did not continue into Sunday, however, as the Huskies took a 15-4 loss in the series finale. With William & Mary already ahead 7-3 going into the sixth, their seven runs in the bottom of the sixth only served as insurance.

The Huskies will be back home Wednesday to face off against Rhode Island at Friedman Diamond.
