DELAND, Fla. – Stetson responded to an 8-run loss with a 10-run victory Saturday, beating Yale 11-1 to even up the series at one game apiece.


Yale couldn't get things going at the dish, with seven hits – all singles. This came just one day after a 14-hit parade against Stetson on Friday, which Yale won 10-2.


After scoring one in the second inning and three in the sixth, Stetson piled on with five runs in the bottom of the seventh, all with two outs. With Yale starter Chasen Ford removed from the game, Stetson's Josh Powers hit his second double of the day to score a run. Garrett Russini followed with a two-RBI single, and Kyle Pitts' two-RBI double broke the game open and made the score 9-0.


Yale's lone run came in the eighth inning. Jacob Hunter singled up the middle, and David Toups matched him with a single through the right side. Green Campbell then hit an RBI single to center field, putting the Bulldogs on the board.


Eric Hsieh and Robert Baldwin each ended their hitting streaks (eight and six games, respectively) in the loss.


Head Coach John Stuper said it was "not a good day for us. We need to be better tomorrow, and I think we will. It would be nice to take the series."


Yale plays Stetson one last time for the rubber match Monday at 1:00 PM EDT.
