Explorers drop finale to KState; Doty impresses again for Villanova

Chase Arnold had the hot bat again for La Salle
Chase Arnold collected two hits and drove in La Salle's first run, but the Explorers dropped the series finale Sunday to Kansas State, 5-1.

Ben Faso and Tommy Toal also recorded two hits apiece in the losing effort.

Colin Kennedy scattered just three earned runs and six hits over five innings of work, striking out a career-best 10 batters.

The Explorers finished the weekend with 39 hits and are averaging 12 hits per game through their first 11 contests.

Wofford 5, Penn 4
Penn scored two runs in the ninth in a comeback effort but fell to Wofford, 5-4, on Sunday afternoon.

Chris Adams and Andrew Murnane each drove in two runs for the Quakers.

Mitchell Holcomb pitched five innings, surrendering four runs on six hits in the losing effort.

Northeastern 1, Villanova 0
Ryan Doty scattered five hits and just the one run in seven innings of work while walking three and striking out four.

Josh Kim reached base three times in his first career start, going 1-for-2 with a double and two walks for the Wildcats.

Doty escaped jams in the bottom of the first and second innings to keep the game scoreless early on, then settled into a groove where he retired six straight and 10 of 12 before Northeastern broke through after there were two outs and nobody on in the fifth. He finished strong after the Huskies scored their run and retired six of the final eight batters he faced.

East Carolina 8, Saint Joseph's 0
Justin Aungst took the loss for the Hawks, allowing three earned runs on eight hits in five and 2/3 innings.

Matt Mull finished 2-for-4 on the afternoon for Saint Joseph's.
