In a game at Brandies University, senior right fielder Keaghan Austin-MacInnis (pictured above) broke out for two HRs on a 3-for-4 game that included two doubles and six RBIs in a 9-7 loss.

Austin-MacInnis leads the team with two HRs and is tied with first baseman Reed Pike for the team-lead with 10 RBIs.

Shortstop Ryan Feeney has continued his successful season, leading the team with a .382 batting average, 29 hits, 12 runs scored and five doubles.

Senior center fielder Travis Ritchie leads the team with his five stolen bases, and sits second in batting average (.329) and hits (25).

On the mound, Shane Surette has posted the lowest ERA on the club at 3.20, and currently sits at 2-2 with six appearances, four of those being starts.
