ABOUT THE PIONEERS
Northeastern University scored three times in ninth to tie the game and then once in the 10th to earn a come-from-behind victory, 7-6, over the Bryant University baseball team on Wednesday afternoon at Conaty Park. The Bulldogs took a three-run lead to the ninth thanks to a three-run eighth inning home run from redshirt sophomore Ryan Ward but Bryant's sixth error of the game allowed the tying run to score in the top of the ninth. Bryant left the bases loaded in the bottom of the 10th. Ward finished 2-for-5 with a home run, three RBI and two runs scored. Classmate Jimmy Titus and junior Chris Wright also finished with two hits.
