The Colonels tacked on three more runs in the bottom of the second to take a 4-0 lead. A bunt single by sophomore Kyle Connors brought home senior David Stevens, who led off the inning with a base hit up the middle. Sophomore Matt O’Neill later crossed the plate on a throwing error then Connors scored when senior Carlos Cornejo reached on another error. Curry added a single run in the bottom of the fourth to account for the 5-0 final.
Fitzpatrick (4-2) went all nine innings, giving up three hits and five walks while striking out seven. Connors went 2-for-2 at the plate with an RBI. Starter Eric Wolak (0-4) took the loss for Gordon, hurling 3 1/3 innings, allowing five hits, five runs (two earned) and a walk while fanning one.
