FLEMINGTON-The Broncs banged out 19 hits to defeat Lafayette in a game played at the Jack Cust Baseball Academy Field. "It went well today," said Rider head coach Barry Davis. "We swung the bats. 19 hits is a pretty good day."

Rider juniors Mason Heyne (Shrewsbury, Pa./Susquehannock) and A.J. Albee (Ashley, Pa./Hanover Area) each had four hits and freshman Adam Wayman (Wilkes-Barre, Pa./G.A.R. Memorial) had three hits.

Senior Nick Wojnowski (Baldwin, Md./Calvert Hall) hit a solo home run in the fifth inning to break a 6-6 tie.  Senior Eric Woodrow (Hamilton, N.J./Hamilton West) hit a two-run single and scored on Albee's fourth hit of the day to make it 10-6.

Senior Matt McCollum (Tabernacle, N.J./Shawnee) hit a two-run home run to give Rider a 6-3 lead in the third inning.

Albee doubled in the second inning and scored on an error to give Rider a 4-2 lead. Albee's four hits was a career-high.

"We were aggressive at the plate today," Davis said. "We got pitches to hit and put good swings on them."

Heyne hit a two-run home run in the first inning to give the Broncs a 2-0 lead and junior John Ralston (Annandale, Va./Paul VI) hit an RBI double to make it 3-0. The home run was the first of the season for Heyne and the 18th of his career. Heyne had four hits for the second year in a row against Lafayette.

Ralston had three hits, including two doubles on the day.

Freshman pitcher Sean Kuberiet (Branchburg/Somerville) entered the game in the fourth inning with one out and retired both batters he faced and was credited with the win, his first at Rider. Freshman Joe Calogero (Cherry Hill/Cherry Hill HS West) pitched two scoreless innings and was the most effective of the six Bronc hurlers.

"Our bullpen was one of our strengths today," Davis said. "Kuberiet got us out of the inning and Calogero threw well."

Lafayette (0-7) cut the lead to 3-2 in the bottom of the first inning with a two-run home run, and added a two-run home run in the ninth inning for the final score.

Rider (5-3) travels to Salem, Virginia to take on Radford in a three-game series beginning Saturday night. From there Rider travels to Virginia Tech for two games and to Longwood for a four-game series. "Next week will be a good test for us," Davis said. "We will certainly be challenged. Virginia Tech plays in the ACC which is a pretty tough league and they're on an eight game winning streak right now. Radford is in the Big South which is a very good baseball league and Longwood is independent so they play a tough schedule. We've got our work cut out for us, but we're swinging the bat pretty good, so that's a good sign."
