SALISBURY, Md. – The No. 4 Salisbury University baseball team lit up the scoreboard again on Monday, as it took on Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in a non-conference game, defeating the Engineers, 11-5.
The Sea Gull offense opened up in the bottom of the fourth, scoring three runs to take a 4-0 lead, including a solo home run from junior Tyler Hrycak, his third long ball of the season.
Shockley carried his no-hit bid into the sixth inning, but the Engineers (0-3) would close the gap in the inning scoring two runs on the only two hits the Salisbury junior would surrender. In the bottom of the sixth the Gulls tallied six runs to put the score at 10-2. The scoring was highlighted by a two-run homer from Hrycak, his second of the contest, and a solo home run from senior Danny Breen.
The Sea Gulls will turn around tomorrow to travel to Newport News, Va. to take on the Apprentice School in a single game at 2 p.m., before coming back home to compete against Christopher Newport University in a Capital Athletic Conference game on Wednesday.
