Junior thirdbaseman Allen Strick (Glen Burnie, MD) was the only Monarch to have two hits as junior secondbaseman Jesse Schoendiest's (Belcamp, MD) second inning triple was ODU's only extra base hit. Senior outfielder Pedro Pena (Haverhill, MA.) drove in his second run of the season with Schoediest and Derrick James (Terre Haute, IN) adding the other RBI's.
