AUBURNDALE, Fla. – A pair of three-run innings keyed a doubleheader sweep for McDaniel, which notched a pair of 6-2 non-conference baseball victories over Rhode Island College at the 2012 RussMatt Central Florida Invitational in non-conference baseball action on Thursday.

James Chiorello (East Windsor, Md./Lawrenceville Prep) keyed the game two win, going the distance on the mound, allowing three hits while striking out seven while adding two hits to the offense for the Green Terror (8-3), who ran its current winning streak to seven games – the squad's longest since 2002.

Brett Hopkins and Kevin Carey led the Anchormen (5-5) with two hits each.

In game one, Joe Fiore (Point Pleasant, N.J./Point Beach) led off the third inning with the first of his three singles. After moving to second on a Garret Nemser (Hartsdale, N.Y./Edgemont) sacrifice, an error put runners at the corners before Fiore scored on a Ricky LaSota (Burtonsville, Md./Paint Branch) single.

With one out in the fifth, Fiore rapped another single before Nemser drew a walk to put runners at first and second.

Brandon Hayward (Salisbury, Md./J.M. Bennett) singled home Fiore before Tyler Jackow (Colonia, N.J./Colonia) knocked n Nemser.

LaSota followed with an RBI groundout to plate Hayward and stretch the lead to 4-0.

A Chris Longo (Monroe, N.Y./Monroe Woodbury) walk, Fiore single and a rundown play stretched the advantage to 5-0 in the sixth.

Singles from Kyle Allaire and Alex Verrecchia coupled with an error and Hopkins RBI groundout led to a pair of unearned runs in the bottom of the frame.

Hayward walked with one out in the seventh before stealing second and taking third on a groundout.

A passed ball on a third strike allowed Hayward to score top set the final margin.

Danny Snight (Silver Spring, Md./St. John's College) struck out five and allowed five hits in six innings for his second win of the season.

In game two, Rhode Island took a 2-0 lead after an error and Dan Hopkins home run in the top of the first inning.

Jimmy Najera (Fort Washington, Md./DeMatha) responded in the bottom of the frame with a two-run single that plated Hayward and LaSota, who singled and wlaked, respectively.

A LaSota walk and singles from Chiorello and Marshall Betts (Berlin, Md./Stephen Decatur) gave McDaniel a 3-2 lead in the third before breaking the game open with three in the fourth.

Hayden Athey (Potomac, Md./St. John's College) drew a walk to lead off in the inning before moving to second on a groundout.

Jackow and LaSota each drew walks to load the bases before an error allowed Athey to score and keep the bases loaded for Betts, who rapped a two-run single.

Chiorello improved to 3-1 on the season with the win.

The Green Terror concludes its eight-game trip to Florida against Drew on Friday. Game time is 11:30 a.m.
