WALTHAM -- Junior right fielder Chase Rose (Scottsdale, Az)
had four of his team's 22 hits and was one of ten Tufts University
players to score at least one run as the Jumbos recorded a 13-7 win
over Bentley University in non-conference college baseball Tuesday
afternoon at DeFelice Field.
Junior third baseman Ross Curley (Lexington, MA) drove in four
runs for Bentley, which finished its season at 21-25. Tufts, ranked
20th nationally in Division III, set a school record for victories
in a season, improving to 28-5 with its seventh consecutive victory.
They broke the eight-year old wins record of 27 set by the 2002
Four of the first five Tufts batters in the game had hits, but a
Bentley double play helped the Falcons get out of the opening inning
with just one run allowed. That came in on a double down the left
field line by sophomore Matt Collins (Hopkinton, MA).
While the defense came through for Bentley in the first, that was
not the case in the second. A throwing error on a routine ground
ball that would have ended the inning instead opened the door for
four unearned runs. There were three straight hits after the error,
including a two-run double by Jumbo sophomore third baseman Sam
Sager (Cranston, RI).
Bentley cracked the scoring column in the fifth, scoring twice to
cut the deficit to 7-2. Senior DH Charlie Pagliarulo (Medford, MA)
had an RBI single for the first run and the second scored on an
A four-run sixth by Tufts broke the contest wide open, putting
the visitors up 11-2. Six straight batters reached after sophomore
left fielder Mark Lane (Tyngsboro, MA) made a diving catch for the
inning's first out.
A bases-clearing three-run double by Curley in the sixth made it
an 11-5 game, and Bentley scored its final two runs of the 2010
season in the seventh. Senior catcher Mike DeCoste (Chelmsford, MA)
had a double, Curley followed with his second two-bagger of the
game, and Curley later scored on a throwing error.
In addition to the four by Rose, Tufts' 22 hits included three
apiece by Collins and junior shortstop David LaResche (St. Louis,
MO). Rose, Sager and senior DH Corey Pontes (Milton, MA)
each scored twice, and Sager and junior DH Ben Walkley (Trumbull,
CT) both had two RBI.
Bentley's nine hits included two apiece by Curley and Pagliarulo,
who finished his career with 218, third most in the program's
Senior righty Tom Hill (Robbinsville, NJ), the first of
seven Tufts pitchers, was credited with the victory, his fifth of
the season without a loss, after allowing one hit in two scoreless
innings to open the game.
Freshman JP Ashline (Clinton, MA) was the most effective of four
Bentley pitchers, striking out two and allowing two hits in two
