Canisius College took an early lead, but errors proved costly as the Golden Griffins dropped a 6-2 decision to Marist in the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference Championship at Sal Maglie Stadium in Niagara Falls.
Chris Conley had a two-run double in the first inning to put the Griffs up early. But Marist responded with three runs in the sixth off two Canisius errors and a sacrifice fly. A two-run home run from Frankie Gregorie in the seventh extended the Red Foxes’ lead to 5-2 with an insurance run in the eighth.
The Griffs play again at 5 p.m. Friday in the double-elimination tournament.
