Box Score

BRIDGEPORT, CT - The Rhode Island Rams jumped out to a four-run lead in the first inning and never looked back, banging out 19 hits and taking advantage of 11 walks from six Sacred Heart pitchers to run away with a 23-2 non-conference win Tuesday afternoon.

Rhode Island starter Dan Rossignol went six strong innings, allowing just two first-inning runs and two hits. He struck out four and did not walk a batter.

Evan Laude and Oliver Palmer drove in four runs apiece for the Rams.

SHU got RBIs from Jeff Heppner and Rob Griffith for their two runs in the first inning.

The Pioneers are back in action on Friday when they start a four-game series against Mount St. Mary's at Trumbull High School at 4 pm.
