Hofstra Vs. Delaware, 2012 CAA Baseball Tournament: Blue Hens Roll Over Hofstra

The No. 3 seed Delaware Blue Hens rolled to victory against No. 2 seed Hofstra on Thursday afternoon in Harrisonburg. Delaware starter Eric Young went the distance, pitching nine innings while allowing just three runs. Young scattered ten hits to lead the Blue Hens to the 11-3 win over Hofstra.

Delaware's offense exploded early, putting up ten runs in the first three innings. A huge seven-run 3rd inning removed all doubt early on, and Young simply salted it away from there. Nick Ferdinand had a huge game for the Blue Hens, driving in three runs and scoring two. Tyler Powell and Alex Maruri also added two RBIs each as they simply poured it on. They move on to face No. 1 seed UNC-Wilmington on Friday at Noon ET. Hofstra will face the winner of the Towson and VCU game.
