JERSEY CITY-The Broncs won the rubber game and the series with a Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference victory at Saint Peter's Sunday afternoon. "It is nice to win the series, especially when you split on Saturday," said Rider head coach Barry Davis.

Rider (16-27, 9-9 MAAC) scored four runs in the eighth inning on four hits, a walk and a double steal (second and home) to take an 8-2 lead. "We were able to put together a big inning there," Davis said. "Jerry (Mulderig) had the big hit that inning. That gave us the cushion we needed."

The Broncs took a 3-2 lead in the sixth inning on three hits and an error, including a hit and a run scored by sophomore Jerry Mulderig (Langhorne, PA/Council Rock South).

Freshman Kurt Sowa (Bensalem, PA/Fr. Judge) pitched six and a third innings, allowing just one earned run while striking out two for his third win. "Kurt threw very well," Davis said.

Freshman Justin Thomas (Richboro, PA/Council Rock South) had three of Rider's 13 hits. "Justin swung the bat," Davis said. "He's coming around and played a solid third base today. I thought our approach at the plate was pretty good today. We hit a little better today."

A sacrifice fly by graduate student Ryan Murphy (Yardville, N.J./Steinert) in the second inning gave the Broncs a 1-0 lead.

Mulderig, junior Adam Wayman (Wilkes-Barre, Pa./G.A.R. Memorial) and Murphy each had two hits and an RBI.

A Saint Peter's (17-26, 8-6 MAAC)  solo home run tied the score at 2-2 in the fifth.

Wayman singled and eventually scored on a wild pitch in the top of the fourth inning to give Rider a 2-1 lead. Wayman's bases-loaded walk in the seventh gave Rider a 4-2 lead.

Wayman moved from third base to left field today as the Broncs were without their top two hitters, junior left fielder Ian Lindsay (Oaklyn/Haddon Twp.) who is batting a team-high .317 but is out with a concussion and senior Brandon Cotten (Wiconisco, Pa./Williams Valley), who leads Rider with 44 hits, 28 runs scored, nine doubles and 13 stolen bases who is out with a foot injury.

"We persevered today," Davis said. "I don't think Wayman has ever played left before and Thomas did a nice job at third. We overcame some obstacles today. It was a good win for us."

The Broncs host Lafayette Wednesday. "They beat us early in the year," Davis remembered, "so hopefully we'll play better this time."
