FISHKILL – Needing one win to clinch the final playoff spot for the Skyline Conference, Mount Saint Mary College (16-16) took both ends of a double-header from NYU-Poly (3-20) on Sunday evening. The Knights qualify as the sixth seed and will take on third-seeded Purchase College.

The Knights would make things interesting in game one, trailing 6-5 as the game headed to the bottom of the seventh inning. In the seventh, the Mount strung together eight hits and took advantage of four NYU-Poly errors for 12 runs, pushing the score to 17-6.

Freshman James Nakashian went 3-for-4 with three runs scored and three RBIs. Freshman Matt Cahill also added three hits and three runs.

Sophomore Matt Schumacher came on in relief in the fourth and pitched four scoreless to earn the win.

In game two, seven Mount pitchers combined on a shutout as the Knights claimed a 9-0 victory. Freshman Sean Betterly pitched the first inning and earned the win.
