(DeLand, Fla.) –Seven different Hatters drove in runs as Stetson completed a two-game sweep of Quinnipiac with a 13-5 win Tuesday night at Melching Field. 


The Hatters (15-6) strung together seven consecutive hits on the way to six runs in the seventh to put the game away.  Quinnipiac (2-4) had taken a 2-0 lead before Stetson rallied for a 5-2 advantage.  The Bobcats clawed back to within a run when the Hatters erupted in the seventh. 


Shane Jordan started off the big seventh with a single to center.  After Adam Tindle doubled, Braedyn Pruitt drove home Jordan with a single.  That prompted a pitching change and Justin Bass greeted Tyler Brett with an RBI single.  Aaron Crittenden doubled in another run and Brian Pruitt and Jeremy Cruz delivered back-to-back RBI singles for the sixth and seventh consecutive hits. 


Andy Mauldin (1-0) earned the win in his first start of the year.  The right-hander went 5 1/3 innings, allowing three runs on eight hits with no walks and two strikeouts. 


Crittenden finished 4-for-4 with 2 RBI.  Braedyn Pruitt, Bass and Cruz each tallied three hits. 


A sacrifice fly from Justin Bass put Stetson a head 3-2 in the third.  Braedyn Pruitt provided a run-scoring single earlier in the inning and Josh Clendenin drove in the Hatters first run in the second. 


The Hatters picked up a couple of insurance runs in the eighth thanks to a double from Bass and a sacrifice fly to the wall in center from Crittenden. 


Stetson’s 18 hits were their second-highest total in a single game this year.  Every Hatter in the starting lineup had at least one hit and seven of the nine scored. 


The Hatters will take two days off before beginning conference play Friday night at North Florida.
