KISSIMMEE, Fla. -- The baseball Musketeers used a four-run sixth inning and strong pitching performances to earn their fourth consecutive win with a 4-1 victory over Miami (Ohio) Thursday afternoon at the Walt Disney World Baseball Complex.
Xavier (7-6) beat up the RedHawks in the top of the sixth scoring four runs. Senior first baseman Ben Thomas got the ball rolling with a leadoff single to left center. Senior catcher Ryan Bellamy brought Thomas home with a RBI single.
