HAMPTON, Va. – The Tufts University baseball team scored in each of the first seven innings and in eight of nine overall while taking a 17-2 victory over Marymount early Sunday evening at War Memorial Stadium.

John Moschella led Tufts with four hits and four rbis

The win, which wrapped up Tufts' four-game stand at War Memorial to open their spring trip, was a measure of revenge for Saturday's 10-4 loss to the Saints. The Jumbos improved to 3-1 while Marymount dropped to 7-7.

Junior DH John Moschella led Tufts with a 4 for 5 day with four rbis and a run. He singled home a run in the first, singled and scored in the third, hit a two-run double in the fifth and doubled again in the eighth.

Senior 1B Nick Falkson was 2 for 4 with four rbis and a three runs scored, including a two-run double in the seventh. Freshman 2B Ryan Daues was on base five times with three singles and two walks, and added two rbis. Junior Casey Santos-Ocampo and senior 3B Tommy O'Hara both homered and scored three runs apiece. Senior RF Malcolm Nachmanoff walked four times and scored twice.

The Jumbos had 12 hits, earned 10 walks, took six hit-by-pitches and benefited from six Marymount errors.

Senior Kevin Galasso earned the win in relief for Tufts, pitching 5.2 shutout innings allowing five hits. Freshman starter Owen Copps gave up just one hit in his 3.1 innings, but struggled with control.

Marymount's lone runs came in the fourth. With one out, Conner Hall doubled then the Saints earned three straight walks against Copps to force home a run. Galassso came on, and Cal Berman followed with an rbi single.

The Saints used seven pitchers with starter Kenny Sysyn taking the loss (2IP, 4H, 4ER).

The Jumbos will play at Guilford on Monday. Marymount is next in action on Wednesday for a single game at home against Frostburg State.
