Notes: Southern New Hampshire has won 23 of 28, including 15 of 16 and seven straight, advancing to host Championship Weekend following a 3-2 come-from-behind victory over Bentley on Tuesday ... the Penmen trailed 2-0 with the bases empty and one out in the bottom of the ninth when freshman Dakota Mulcay (Goffstown, N.H.) laced a single to left before senior Caleb Potter (Mentor, Ohio) came through with lined shot over the fence in left that tied the game ... SNHU added two more hits and was issued an intentional walk to load the bases before redshirt-sophomore Joshua Goldstein (Haverhill, Mass.) hit a ground ball to short and the throw home was wide of the plate, allowing the Penmen to walk off ... senior Mitchell Powers (Portland, Maine) allowed one run on four hits over seven innings, while striking out six and walking three ... redshirt-junior Jake Walkinshaw (Seymour, Conn.) gave up one run on one hit in two innings, punching out three and not walking a batter, to earn the win and improve to 5-0 ... Potter finished 2-for-4 with a pair of RBI and a run scored ... freshman Idelson Taveras (Lawrence, Mass.), who scored the winning run, was 1-for-1, while sophomore Ethan Harris (Middleton, Mass.) went 1-for-3 ... Mulcay (run) and grad student Taylor Olmstead (Greenwich, Conn.) were each 1-for-4 ... Potter extended his hitting streak to nine games ... Mulcay was voted as the league's Rookie Hitter of the Year on Wednesday.

Notes: New Haven snapped a two-game slide and avenged those two losses by sending home the team that dealt them, edging Adelphi, 3-2, in the NE10 Championship first round Tuesday ... the Chargers had won 10 straight before Adelphi took the final two games of the regular season, but New Haven would walk off in the ninth on a bases loaded walk to advance to Cnampionship Weekend ... UNH jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the second before Adelphi knotted it with two in the seventh ... grad student Jack Zagaja (walk, run) and sophomore Matt Chamberlain (walk) were each 2-for-3 ... junior James Myers went 1-for-2 with an RBI, while senior Joe Caico was 1-for-3 ... grad student Tom Walraven turned in a 1-for-4 performance and scored a run ... senior David Palmer allowed two runs on seven hits, while striking out five and walking one, over six-and-a-third innings ... senior Kellen Croce notched the victory to improve to 5-0 by entering with one out in the ninth and inducing an inning-ending double play.
