Goldey-Beacom opened things at Richie Ashburn Field in Philadelphia with a 17-4 Central Atlantic Collegiate Conference victory over University of the Sciences before a 9-6 loss in the nightcap.
 
Goldey-Beacom in the second inning of game one plated three runs on an RBI double from sophomore Jeff Gillis (DMA) and a two-run blast from junior Tevin Thomas (Dover).  Freshman Connor Megginson (Hodgson) in the third inning lined a two-run double for a 5-0 cushion.
 
Sophomore Trent Hearn (Sussex Tech) lined a two-run double in the fourth, Gillis added an RBI single and Thomas contributed a run-scoring single for a 9-0 margin.
 
The Lightning then got six runs in the fifth for a 15-2 margin, led by Gillis' two-run double.  Senior Brandon Abdul (Old Bridge, NJ) and junior Ivan Solis (La Chorrera, Panama) each got bases-loaded walks in the seventh for the final.
 
Gillis rapped three doubles to tie the school record, also finishing with four hits and four RBI.  Solis, who this week made the CACC Weekly Honor Roll, stayed red hot with four hits.  Hearn, Megginson, Thomas and freshman Mason Maxwell (Newfield, NJ) each had three hits for the Lightning, who had 22 hits to break the school record.
 
Greentown, PA sophomore Mitch Guerrieri (1-3) got the win, yielding four runs – three earned – and six hits over five innings.  Hearn made his first appearance on the mound and got the save, striking out four over three innings.
 
Joe Duffy had three hits for the Devils.
 
The Lightning in the second inning of game two got three home for a 4-2 lead.  Thomas smacked a leadoff homer, junior Justin Hill (Sussex Tech) lined an RBI single and Solis lifted a sacrifice fly.
 
With the score tied 4-4 entering the last of the fifth, the Devils erupted for three runs.  Chris Anderson had a two-run single through the left side with Nick Amicon getting an RBI single and Joseph Jachimiak credited for an RBI following an error.
 
The Lightning (9-25, 8-12 CACC) were down 9-4 entering the seventh before getting two runs to make things interesting.  Abdul homered and junior Zach Roseman (Tatnall) got a one-out RBI single for a 9-6 contest, but the Devils got the final two batters out with each representing the potential tying run.
 
Solis notched two more hits, giving him hits in nine of his last 10 contests with six multi-hit games in that span.  He is batting .541 (20-for-37) in that time with 13 RBI.
 
Ryan Johnson (2-2) tossed five hitless innings with three strikeouts for USciences (12-21, 8-12).
