He then handed the ball to senior Alex Hodis, who tossed four scoreless innings of relief to earn the save, allowing three hits and one walk with three strikeouts.
Sophomore Nolan Adams paced the offense by going 2-for-3 with a double, a run scored and an RBI. Sophomore Devin Robinson produced a base hit and a run scored, senior Garrett Haley tallied a base hit, and junior Jason Yipp scored once.
