Stranded runners and rocky pitching proved to be the downfall for UMass-Boston as the Beacons were eliminated from the NCAA Division 3 World Series after being routed by Wisconsin-Stevens Point, 13-3, in Appleton, Wis.

The Beacons, who left 15 runners on base, finished their season with a record of 32-17.

The Pointers made it tough right from the beginning when they sent 10 batters to the plate in the bottom of the first inning, which resulted in six runs while knocking out Beacons starter Danny Gomez after two-thirds of an inning. Daniel Heefner fared no better in relief as he gave up five runs in four innings pitched.

The Pointers scored three runs in both the fourth and fifth innings to make it a 12-1 lead and the Beacons couldn’t recover.

On the positive side for UMass-Boston, second baseman Ryan Walsh led the offense with three hits in five at-bats. Left fielder Drew Tambling and third baseman Mike Mattei had two hits apiece.

A day earlier, in its first game of the double-elimination tournament, the Beacons lost to Linfield (Ore.), 12-0.
