Fordham wins big over Temple on the diamond

Fordham took two of three games against Temple with a 21-5 victory on the baseball diamond Sunday.

The Rams had split the first two games with Temple over the weekend, and needed to win the rubber match to stay tied for third place in the Atlantic 10.

Fordham attacked the Owls with both offense and defense. Third baseman Jordan Lert rocked a two-run dinger in the sixth, and went 2-3 on the day with three RBIs. His homer put the Rams up 17-1.

The 17-1 lead was more than enough for Rams hurler Javier Martinez, who went six innings, gave up only one run on seven hits and struck out two.

Fordham took the series with the 21-5 victory.
