            The Ashland University baseball team ended its spring trip in Florida Sunday morning (Mar. 11) with a 2-1 loss to Mansfield.  The game was played in Auburndale, Fla.

            The Mounties scored twice in the fourth inning and that was enough to win on this day.

            For the Eagles, catcher Mickey Manser (Salem, Ohio/West Branch) rapped an RBI double.  Shortstop Matt Gundlach (Monroeville, Ohio/Sandusky Perkins) and third baseman Tyler Gray (Plain City, Ohio/Jonathan Alder) both doubled.

            Starting pitcher Brad Thomas (Orrville, Ohio) had to depart in the second inning after suffering an injury on a play at first base.  Freshman right-hander Zach Wolfe (Williamsport, Ohio/Westfall) took the loss.

            The Eagles are 6-5.
