RPI Baseball Now 2-0 at DIII Regional
The RPI baseball team moved another step closer to the ultimate goal of advancing to the Division III World Series in Appleton, Wisc. by beating SUNY Old Westbury, 12-2, on Thursday night.
After beating Keystone 2-0 on Wednesday, the big win was a nice relief for the Engineers.
RPI scored first, putting up a run in the second. Old Westbury countered, tying the game in the third before RPI put up two more in the fourth to take a 3-1 lead. But the home squad scored in the bottom half to make it 3-2, but from there, it was all RPI.
The Engineers scored nine unanswered runs, using a big five-run fifth inning to take total control. They'd add an insurance run in the seventh and three in the ninth.
Jared Jensen went 3-5 with two RBIs, Tim LeSuer went 3-5, Nick Palmiero went 3-4 with two RBIs and Jason Ramos also had two RBIs in the win.
RPI will take on No. 1 Cortland State today at 4:30 p.m.
