MSC faces Lincoln in baseball showdown

April 10, 2011

Lincoln's Joe Hamilton

WOONSOCKET — It’s a little early for Mount St. Charles to start circling the wagons.
The two-time defending Division II champions have played just one game in Division I this season, a 6-5 loss to Smithfield, and this afternoon they host powerful Lincoln High in a 4 p.m. game that could be an eye opener for the Mounties.
Lincoln, which has scored 10 runs in each of its first two league victories (over St. Raphael and Cumberland), is led by Ryan O’Dell and a strong nucleus of players who should take the Lions deep into the playoffs in early June.
“Ryan O’Dell is one of the best players in the state,” Mount coach Tom Seaver admitted on Sunday. “One thing we know is there are no easy games in Division I.”
The Mounties will send righthander Collins Utterman, a competitive senior, to the mound. He pitched four scoreless innings in the Smithfield game last Thursday after ace lefthander Garrett Hayward gave up six runs in two innings of work.
Seaver has been preaching all along that the transition to Division I is a huge challenge for the Mount program.
“It’s one of the biggest challenges we have ever faced,” the coach admitted. “Baseball is a great game and the thing we need to keep in mind is that baseball should be fun, too.”
