Bridgeport, CT – The Sacred Heart Pioneers battled back from down 4-0 to cruise by Fairleigh Dickinson, 11-4, Sunday afternoon at the Ballpark at Harbor Yard. Sacred Heart swept all four games against FDU, rebounding from losing three of four last weekend to Monmouth. The Pioneers improve to 19-9 in the Northeast Conference this season.

Freshman Jesus Medina (New York, NY) went 3-5 at the dish with a couple of RBI of his own. Medina's single in the third inning, scoring Brian Lamboy (Manalapan, NJ) tied the game at four. Lamboy doubled in two Pioneers earlier in the inning. The freshman second baseman, Lamboy, went 7-16 with 7 RBI in the four game sweep.

 

Freshman Jayson Sullivan (Valatie, NY) knocked in the game winning fifth run with a sacrifice fly to score senior John Murphy (Seymour, CT).
