BOX SCORE

Princeton starting pitcher Zak Hermans walked off the mound after five innings having allowed 11 hits and eight earned runs in the middle game of a weekend series against Richmond at Pitt Field.

He also walked off the mound with a seven-run lead, and four innings later, he picked up his second win of the season.

Hermans will be involved in his share of pitchers' duels this season. Saturday belonged to the offenses, and Princeton's was the dominant one from start to finish.

Every offensive starter had at least one hit, and six of them had multiple ones in a 21-14 Princeton victory. Designated hitter Sam Mulroy had four hits, six RBIs and three runs scored, while shortstop Matt Bowman had four hits and four runs scored for the Tigers, who improved to 3-6 on the season.

First baseman Mike Ford, catcher Tyler Servais, centerfielder John Mishu and third baseman Blake Thomsen each had two hits apiece for Princeton, which matched its seventh-highest run total in a single game (since 1930). The last time Princeton scored as many runs was April 24, 2004, when the Tigers recorded a 21-11 victory over Penn.

Princeton got home runs from Mulroy, Mishu and Thomsen in the victory; Servais added a pair of double for the Tigers, who will look to win the weekend series when Princeton and Richmond square off Sunday at 1.

Mulroy's home run gave Princeton a 2-0 lead three batters into the game, and it set the tone for the rest of the afternoon. It wouldn't be all for the first inning, as Servais drove in a run with his first double and Princeton added runs on a hit by pitch and wild pitch.

Richmond would cut the deficit to 5-3 after two, but Princeton poured on six more runs in the third. Both Servais and Mishu had two-RBI doubles during the inning, which drove Richmond starter Zak Sterling out of the game.

Hermans picked up his second victory by pitching five innings, while Michael Fagan came in for three innings of relief. A.J. Goetz pitched the ninth for Princeton.
