The Friars (1-0) got off to a 6-0 lead after four frames, scoring a run in each of the first three innings, then three more in the fourth. The visitors roared back with a three-run fifth and two more in the seventh before having their rally stopped short.
Max Danielsen (1-0) picked up the win on the mound, tossing four shutout innings while allowing just two hits and striking out seven. The senior also finished 1-for-3 at the plate. Fellow senior Aaron Hunter earned the save and drove in two runs with a double.
Danielsen threw just 59 pitches with 35 strikes and walked just two batters. Lucas Herrmann tossed two innings in relief and Hunter pitched the seventh.
