Game Box Score
Chris Decembrele had four RBIs for the Jumbos, including a three-run triple

MEDFORD -- An extraordinary sixth inning during which they scored nine runs led the Tufts baseball team to a 9-2 victory over Albertus Magnus College on Thursday afternoon at Huskins Field. Junior Adam Telian (Stoughton, MA) improved his record to 3-0 on the mound, allowing one earned run in seven innings. He picked off four Falcon base-runners in the first three innings.

The Jumbos were trailing 1-0 heading into the bottom of the sixth. The first 11 men they sent to the plate reached base by either a hit or a walk. Senior CF Chris Decembrele (Walpole, MA) smashed a three-run triple to deep center field to start the scoring, and he finished it with a sacrifice fly later in the inning. Five Albertus Magnus pitchers issued a total of eight walks in the inning. Four of the Falcon pitchers in the frame did not record an out. Jumbo senior SS Brian Casey (Milford, MA) also had a two-run single.

The Falcons were cruising along nicely with a 1-0 lead through five innings. Starter Dan Doria (West Haven, CT) had kept the Jumbos off the scoreboard, which included working out of a jam with Jumbos on second and third and one out in the fifth. Albertus scored in the top of the fourth when freshman 3B Matt Rondinone (East Hartford, CT) took a walk with one out, moved to third on singles by Michael Damiani (New Haven, CT) and J.R. Bagley (Middletown, CT), then scored on a ground out by Stephen Carosella (Waterbury, CT).

Telian remained in the game after the one-hour long sixth inning, and gave up an unearned run caused by his own error in the seventh. Senior DH Ray Ricker (Torrington, CT) led off with a single and moved to second when Telian's misplayed a ball tapped out in front of the plate. A single by sophomore catcher Robert Boscarino (Windsor Locks, CT) loaded the bases, and Rondinone was hit by a pitch with two outs to score the run.

Tufts freshman Thomas Hill (Robbinsville, NJ) finished the victory with two hitless innings of relief. Sophomore RF Eric Catalanotti (Grafton, MA) was 3 for 4 with a run and an RBI. The win is the fifth straight up north for Tufts (12-4), who are currently ranked #3 in New England.

Damiani and Ricker both finished 2 for 4 for the Falcons (4-5). Doria ended up as the loser, allowing five hits and two runs with three walks in five innings.
