Notes: Southern New Hampshire, ranked No. 17 in the latest NCBWA Division II Poll, advanced in the winner's bracket with a 4-3 walk-off victory against Assumption on Thursday ... after seeing Assumption erase a 2-0 lead, the Penmen went back in front in the bottom of the eighth on a mammoth blast from redshirt-senior Kevin Alexy (Newton, Mass.) ... Assumption again tied it with two outs in the top of the ninth, before SNHU rallied to win it in the home half ... after two quick outs, redshirt-sophomore Marcus Chavez (Queens, N.Y.) doubled toward the right-field line and went to third on an errant throw from the right fielder, before sophomore Sam Henrie (Middleboro, Mass.) jumped on the first pitch he saw, driving it into left to send the Penmen to victory ... freshman Alex Kennedy (Braintree, Mass.) went 3-for-4 and scored a run ... junior Jake Coro (Johnston, R.I.) also turned in a multi-hit performance, going 2-for-4 with an RBI ... Alexy was 1-for-3 with a walk, RBI and run scored ... graduate student Jake Walkinshaw (Seymour, Conn.) worked the first six innings, allowing one run – unearned – on six hits, while striking out five and walking a pair ... sophomore Jeffrey Praml (Bridgewater, N.J.) earned the win to improve to 5-0, relinquishing a run on one hit, while striking out one in an inning-and-a-third ... Praml had his scoreless innings streak snapped at 22-and-a-third ... SNHU is now 24-15 (.632) all-time in eight NCAA Championship appearances.

Notes: LIU Post, ranked 25th in the NCBWA Division II Poll, moved on in the East II Regional with a 7-2 triumph over Felician on Thursday ... the Pioneers scored three unearned runs in the first and repeated that feat in the third, and then cruised from there ... senior James Varela made it all stand up, improving to 10-3 with a complete-game effort ... he gave up just two runs on seven hits, while punching out 15 and walking a pair, in nine innings ... sophomore Anthony Vaglica (Franklin Square, N.Y.) was 1-for-2 with a pair of walks, an RBI and two runs scored ... senior Jimmy Mendyk finished 1-for-3 and knocked in a pair, while freshman David Franchi was 1-for-4 with the RBI and run scored ...
