Red Foxes Outhit North Carolina A&T Aggies

Steve Laurino was 4-for-5 with three RBIs on Sunday against North Carolina A&T.

GREENSBORO, N.C. – The Marist baseball team came back from deficits on three separate occasions in a 14-10 non-conference victory at North Carolina A&T in the finale of a three-game series on Sunday.

The Red Foxes outhit the Aggies, 15-12. Junior Steve Laurino went 4-for-5 with two doubles, three RBIs and a run scored. Senior Zachary Passerelle was 3-for-5 with two doubles, two RBIs and two runs scored. Freshman Jamari Moore went 2-for-6 with three runs scored, and senior shortstop Nick McQuail was 2-for-4 with two runs scored and an RBI.

Senior right-hander Chris Thorsen pitched the final three innings to earn the victory. Thorsen, now 1-0, allowed three hits, one run and one walk while striking out two.

After four innings, Marist trailed 5-1. The Red Foxes responded with a six-run fifth inning, highlighted by a three-run homer off the bat of sophomore Joey Aiola. The Aggies then scored in each of the next three innings, and a two-run seventh gave North Carolina A&T a 9-8 lead heading to the eighth. A sacrifice fly by Laurino in the top of the eighth tied the game, but North Carolina A&T took the lead back with a run in the bottom half of the frame.

Passerelle led off the ninth with a double, and advance to third on a pinch-hit bunt single by senior Jake Berry. Freshman Ben Moller had a two-run single to bring home both Passerelle and Berry, which gave the Red Foxes the lead for good. The Red Foxes also received a two-run, pinch-hit single from sophomore Matt Pagano and a sacrifice fly from McQuail in the inning.
