QUINCY, MASS. >> Trailing by one going into the seventh inning, the Southern Vermont College baseball team scored five runs before finishing off an 8-1 non-conference victory over Eastern Nazarene on Wednesday afternoon.
SVC's offense struggled early on as the Lions' starting pitcher had a no-hitter going after the sixth.
That changed quickly, however, when sophomore shortstop John Arancio hit a two-run homer that gave the Mountaineers a 2-1 lead.
SVC tacked up on three more runs in the frame and then scored three more runs in the top of the ninth to finish the win.
Freshman right-hander Joe Braim had a stellar performance on the rubber for SVC, going eight strong innings, giving one run on eight hits as he let up just the one run on eight hits to pick up his first collegiate win.
Arancio had a team-high two hits and two RBIs in his 2-4 performance at the dish for the Mountainners victory.
Senior RJ Pingitore had an RBI and a run score for SVC in the win as well.
SVC improves to 6-11 on the year with the win and will look to win a fourth straight game today when they travel to face MCLA at 3:30 p.m.
