BLACKSBURG, VA-The Broncs defeated Radford of the Big South Conference Friday in the first game of a three-game series held at Virginia Tech's English Field. "It was a bit chilly today, 34 degrees and flurries, but I'm certainly happy with our performance," said Rider head coach Barry Davis.

For Rider (3-1), every batter collected a hit, as the Broncs banged out 14 hits. "I guess that's a sign of consistency up and down the lineup," Davis said.  "We had good approaches at the plate."

Rider senior Tyler Smith (Westmont/Haddon Twp.) pitched seven scoreless innings, tying his career-high with eight strikeouts. Smith allowed no walks and six hits. "Tyler was in command from the start," Davis said. "He looked good and said he felt good. It was a pretty good outing."

Smith is now 2-0 on the season. A Preseason All-American closer last year, Smith is now 6-4 as a starter, 16-12 overall with 27 saves.

The Broncs broke open a scoreless game by scoring eight runs in the fourth inning on six hits, the biggest hits begins a two-run home run by senior Ian Lindsay (Oaklyn/Haddon Twp.) and a two-run double by sophomore Mike Parsons (Liverpool, NY).

It was Lindsay's 98th career hit and fourth career home run. "It was nice to see him (a left-handed batter) hit that against a left-handed pitcher." Davis said. "He did a good job."

Junior Jerry Mulderig (Langhorne, PA/Council Rock South), junior Ken Kremer (Hershey, PA/Hershey) and sophomore Greg Fazio (Far Hills/Ridge) also hit RBI singles in the fourth inning for Rider.

"We bunched five hits together that inning," Davis said. "Anytime you can do that you are going to have success."

Mulderig had two hits and three RBI and Kremer had two hits on the day, as did senior Adam Wayman (Wilkes-Barre, Pa./G.A.R. Memorial) and sophomore Justin Thomas (Richboro, PA/Council Rock South).

Thomas doubled and scored on a single by Mulderig to give Rider a 10-0 lead in the seventh. "Jerry had a good day and I thought Justin swung the bat well today," Davis said.

In the eighth inning junior Nick Crescenzo (Hammonton, NJ/Hammonton) hit an RBI double, scored on an RBI single by sophomore Eric Strano (Robbinsville) and Strano scored on an RBI single by Wayman for a 13-0 lead.

Rider freshman Brian Donnelly (Churchville, PA/Council Rock South) hit an infield single in his first collegiate at bat.

Rider and Radford (5-3) play a doubleheader Saturday at 12 noon. "I'm sure Radford will be ready to go tomorrow," Davis said. "We'll have to be ready to go as well."
