The Eagles took an early lead at the bottom of the second inning with a Spencer Levine’s RBI double into left-center field to score Corey Fehribach, who led off with a single.
The Scarlet Knights’ Jawuan Harris then scored on a solo home run with two outs, but the Eagles reciprocated with three more runs, making it a 4-1 game.
Rutgers crossed home plate on another solo home run when Tom Marcinczyk smashed one over the opposite field at the top of the fourth inning.
