AUBURNDALE, Fla. – Fredonia scored five runs in the fifth inning en route to a 9-3 win over McDaniel at the RussMatt Central Florida Invitational in baseball action on Monday.

Jon Morrison went 3-for-4 for the Blue Devils (7-1) and was one of five players with multiple hits.

Trailing 3-1, Daniel Goodbread led off the fourth inning with a double before Morrison followed with a double of his own to draw Fredonia within one.

An error and fielder's choice allowed Morrison to score the tying run before a Kevin Yirinec RBI single put the Blue Devils in front, 4-3.

An RBI groundout and two-out Patrick Sheehan double to left capped the five-run frame.

Morrison was hit by a pitch with one away in the seventh before a Joshua Crocetti double put runners at second and third.
