Notes: Southern New Hampshire battled on with a 3-0 victory against Southern Indiana on Sunday ... a pair of RBI singles in the third inning was all the Penmen would need, though they would add an insurance run in the ninth ... graduate student Shane McDonald (Blue Point, N.Y.) improved to 8-2 on the year, as he tossed seven-and-a-third shutout innings, allowing just two hits, while striking out three and walking one ... classmate Andrew Lalonde (Bedford, N.H.) earned his first career save with one-and-two-thirds scoreless frames, giving up one hit, striking out one and issuing a walk ... senior Kyle Pangallo (Ft. Lauderdale, Fla.) went 2-for-3 for the second straight game, drawing a walk and scoring a run ... grad student Thomas Buonopane (Peabody, Mass.) was 2-for-4 with an RBI, with redshirt-sophomore Joshua Goldstein (Haverhill, Mass.; walk, run) and freshman Sam Henrie (Middleboro, Mass.; RBI) each going 1-for-3 ... sophomore Tom Blandini (Bow, N.H.; RBI) and redshirt-senior Ryan Sullivan (Hopkinton, Mass.; run) both went 1-for-4 ... SNHU, which has won 21 of its last 25 contests, reaches the 40-win plateau for the fifth time in program history ... over his two NCAA postseason starts this year, McDonald has thrown 16-and-a-third scoreless innings, allowing just three hits, while striking out 18 and walking three.
