Suffolk University collected 15 hits off five Hamilton College pitchers and took advantage of six errors by the Continentals in a 17-7 Rams' win at Lake Myrtle Park in Auburndale, Fla., on March 22.
Hamilton (3-4 overall) returns to the same site on Monday, March 23, for a doubleheader against D'Youville College. The first seven-inning game is scheduled to start at 1 p.m.
Suffolk (7-3) grabbed a 2-0 lead in the bottom of the first inning. The Rams scored two runs or more in every inning starting with the fourth and ending with the eighth. Suffolk -- located in Boston -- led 8-0 before the Continentals put one run up on the scoreboard in the sixth. The game was stopped after the eighth inning due to the Rams' 10-run lead and time limitations for the field.
Grady Vigneau '10 helped lead the offense as he went 3-for-3 with a double and a triple, and drove in three runs. Sam Choate '12 added four hits, including two doubles, and scored twice. Justin Atwood '11 chipped in three hits and two RBI, and Michael Matt '11 had two hits. Todd Haylon '12, who came in to catch in the sixth inning, cracked a double.
Max Currier '10 allowed two earned runs in three innings, and took the loss in his first career start. Stephen Wright '12, Zak Cohen '09, Nzaba Fonseca-Sabune '12 and Matt Mancini '10 pitched in relief.
