How it Happened
Northeastern (12-11) used a bases-loaded walk to score its only run of the game and take an early lead in the top of the first. Rhode Island (13-13) then evened things up in the bottom of the frame, before plating five runs on five hits – all with two away – in the bottom of the second. Rhody added another in the bottom of the fifth for the 7-1 win over the Huskies.

Inside the Box Score

  • The win was Jim Foster's 200th as the head coach of the Rams. He now owns a 200-154-2 career record in his seventh season at Rhode Island.
  • Liam O'Sullivan picked up the win on the hill – his second in as many starts. He allowed just one run over 6.2 innings while striking out three batters.
  • Rob Curran took over for O'Sullivan in the top of the seventh and did not allow a hit the rest of the way. He closed out the game with 2.1 scoreless innings of relief.
  • Offensively, Chris Famiglietti led the way, going 3-for-4 with a run and an RBI. He also reached once on a walk and finished with eight putouts in left field.
  • Jeff Cammans and Pat Quinn each drove in a pair of runs for the Rams while Jeff Roy – who reached three times on a hit and two walks – crossed the plate twice in the win.

What's Next
The Rams return to action on Wednesday afternoon when they travel to Central Connecticut for a 3 p.m. game vs. the Blue Devils.
