Freshman Tiffany Agostini (Rehoboth, Mass.) added six hits, including four in the nightcap, while driving in five runs for the visiting Rams (9-11, 2-0 MASCAC), who collected 39 total hits on the day, including 11 for extra bases. Senior Alysia Morrissette (Ware, Mass.) chipped in with four hits and five RBI for Framingham State, which also received four hits and four RBI from sophomore Alyssa Begin (Salem, Mass.) as well as three hits and three RBI from sophomore Molly McKinnon (Framingham, Mass.). Sophomore Kyle Fortin (Candia, N.H.) added four hits for the winners, who also received three hits each from senior Alyssa Shea (Lakeville, Mass.) and sophomore Jalesia Rookard (Cambridge, Mass.).
