Shipley had a single and a double with one run scored, while Robeson added a single, double and two runs scored. David Burnside added two RBIs and a double.
In the nightcap, sophomore Trever Bruno and senior Dan Connolly allowed no earned runs in a 6-1 victory. Bruno tossed 7.1 scoreless innings, allowing five hits and one walk with two strikeouts. Connolly did not allow an earned run in his 1.2 inning stint to complete the win.
