Notes: Southern New Hampshire opened World Series play Saturday with a 5-2 loss to fifth-seeded Augustana (S.D.) ... the Penmen made three errors in the first inning, as Augustana jumped out to a 2-0 lead ... it was 3-0 in the second inning when senior Kyle Pangallo (Ft. Lauderdale, Fla.) hit a two-runer homer - his first of the season - that made it a one-run game ... SNHU would not muster another hit until the eighth inning, however, and Augustana tacked on two more in the sixth ... Pangallo finished 2-for-3 with a pair of RBI and a run scored, while senior Caleb Potter (Mentor, Ohio) and graduate student Thomas Buonopane (Peabody, Mass.) were each 1-for-4 ... redshirt-junior Jake Walkinshaw (Seymour, Conn.) was charged with three runs – two earned – on four hits over one-and-a-third innings, while striking out two and walking a batter ... sophomore Wesley Tobin (Portsmouth, N.H.) tossed four innings, allowing two runs on four hits with three strikeouts ... senior Mitchell Powers (Portland, Maine) fired three-and-two-thirds scoreless frames, giving up a pair of hits, while fanning five and walking one.
