Notes: LIU Post, ranked 25th in the NCBWA Division II Poll, advanced to the NCAA East II Regional final with a 4-3 win over Southern New Hampshire on Friday ... trailing, 1-0, the Pioneers mounted a two-out rally in the top of the seventh, with freshman Giovanni Ciaccio (Manalapan, N.J.) drawing a walk, before sophomore Christopher Wasson hit a two-run homer to left that jumped LIU Post in front, 2-1 ... LIU Post would tack on two more runs in the ninth and would need them, as SNHU scored twice in the home half to make it a one-run game ... Wasson finished 2-for-4 with a walk, three RBI and a pair of runs scored ... redshirt-junior Andy Camilo (Bronx, N.Y.) was 3-for-4, while Ciacco went 1-for-3 with a pair of walks and two runs scored ... junior Noah Lorenzo (Massapequa Park, N.Y.) earned the win, allowing just one run on eight hits over eight innings, striking out five and walking one ... freshman Joshua Loeschorn (Butler, N.J.), the ECC Pitcher of the Year, picked up his third save, as he struck out one and allowed two hits in a scoreless inning of work.
