Temple held Fordham hitless into the fifth but in the sixth the Rams went up 2-0 with a hit into left center by junior Brian Kenny. The Rams pitching kicked in with Javier Martinez striking out 14 batters. Martinez and closer James Sammut set a school record for a combined 19 strikeouts. Fordham took Game 1 by a score of 2-0 and Game 2 by a score of 6-2.

The Rams hope to keep up their first-place status heading into the Atlantic 10 tournament in May.
