Sean Phelan scored the winning run for Penn on Sunday
A Sean Phelan double to left to open the eighth inning coupled with a Brendan Bean fielders-choice pushed Penn past Brown in the weekend series finale on Sunday afternoon in Providence, RI., 9-8.

The Quakers offense erupted for 16 hits on the afternoon.

George Washington 8, La Salle 2
The Explorers surrendered five runs in the third frame and never bounced back.
