How it Happened
Rhode Island (14-13) took a two-run lead in the top of the first before CCSU evened it up in the bottom of the second. Rhode Island then plated three in the third for the 5-2 advantage but the Blue Devils (15-10) came back once again, tacking on two in the fourth and another in the sixth to knot the score at 5-5.

Pat Quinn then drove in the go-ahead run in the top of the eighth, scoring Jeff Cammans from second on a hit-and-run single through the left side. The Rams added four more runs in the top of the ninth for the 10-5 victory.
