How it Happened

Rhode Island (27-20, 12-5) took a 1-0 lead in the top of the third when Tim Caputo scored from second on a two-out RBI single by Jeff Cammans. However, Fordham (20-30, 11-9) got the run back in the bottom of the fourth and went on to plate three more the following inning to take a 4-1 lead after five complete frames.

Rhode Island responded with a five-run seventh and managed to keep Fordham off the board the rest of the way, holding on for the 6-4 comeback win.
