The Flyers trailed 3-0 heading into the eighth inning, but scored three runs to tie it and took the lead in the ninth. Juniors Ben Jones and Rochester’s Keagan Calero each picked up three hits on the afternoon, with Jones also driving in two runs for Dayton.
Redshirt freshman Andrew Casey made his first career start at first base in the contest, reaching in his first four plate appearances and scoring the first run of the game, while Curtis picked up a key stolen base in the ninth inning that put him in scoring position for Maloney’s single.
