BOSTON, MA--Old Dominion (21-12/9-2) rallied for five runs in the seventh inning and held off a late rally in the ninth to defeat Northeastern (8-8/4-6), 7-6 in a CAA contest Saturday afternoon.

The Huskies took a 4-2 lead into the top of the fifth inning. Cameron Scott got the Monarch rally going with a one-out single. John Malbon followed with a walk and Gerard Hall's bunt single loaded the bases. With two outs and reliever Ryan Quigley on the mound, Mike Zahm singled to score Scott and Malbon. McAloose then walked to reload the bases. David Burns then singled in Zahm and Hall to give ODU a 6-4 lead. Tyler Belcher then singled off reliver Dan Zehr to score McAloose for a 7-4 lead.

In the top of the ninth and one out Frank Compagnone and Mike Tamsin each got RBI hits to cut the Monarchs lead to 7-6, but reliver Ross Fetterly retired the next two batters to hold on for the win and his third save of the year.

Sophomore righthander Anthony Shawler remains unbeaten at 7-0. He fanned ten batters, walked two and only two of the four runs he allowed were earned. Shawler now leads the CAA with 75 strikeouts in 60.1 innings, and his ERA is at 2.83. Jeff Thomson fanned six in six-plus innings of work for Northeastern.

David Burns, who knocked in three runs yesterday had four RBI today with three hits. He tripled in a run in the first, singled in a run in the sixth and singled in two runs in the seventh.
