Auburndale, FL --- Sean Kelly's (Shrewsbury, MA) hit early tied the game and a walk helped keep WPI close as the Engineers dropped a 5-3 decision to Husson on Tuesday in the RussMatt Central Florida Invitational. WPI dips to 2-3, while the Eagles improve to 3-1.
Husson lit up the scoreboard first on a double. WPI would tie the game in the second on a Kelly hit. The Eagles put up four unearned runs in the top of the fourth for the 5-1 lead.
Alex Julian (Sterling, MA) suffers the loss as he struck out seven and allowed one earned run in six innings.
WPI will enjoy an off-day tomorrow and is back on the diamond Thursday morning to face Thomas More.
