Later that inning, Mitch Barrick and Braydon Venus drove in runs in back-to-back at-bats to put Lafayette on top 5-0.

Bruton scored a run in the bottom of the second as Kevin Zamudio scored on a passed ball by Lafayette.

After adding a run in the top of the third inning, Lafayette blew the game open with four runs in the fourth.

Keane started the inning with an RBI single, which was followed by an RBI double from Chase Bauer. Later in the inning, the Rams added runs on a bases-loaded hit batter and a fielding error.

Three more runs in the top of the fifth allowed the Rams to reach the 10-run threshold and end the game.

On Wednesday, Lafayette (12-4) will host Grafton and Bruton (3-13) will host Poquoson.
