A-Sun: Ursine Showdown
By Bryan App - May 24, 2007
Here's your vocab lesson of the day, per Merriam-Webster:
Main Entry: ur-sine
Etymology: Latin ursinus, from ursus bear -- more at ARCTIC
1 : of or relating to a bear or the bear family (Ursidae)
2 : suggesting or characteristic of a bear
Of course the word can be applied to tonight's game between the Mercer Bears and Belmont Bruins. The score is still tied at 0 in the bottom of the third.
Belmont had a scoring opportunity in the top of the second but stranded runners at first and second. Kane Simmons was hit by a pitch with one out. Daniel Wagner then reached on a fielder's choice that put Simmons out at second. He advanced to third as Brady Manifold singled to left, but a Brandon McCall fly out to rightfield ended the inning.
