Head Coach Denny Bowers used 20 different players Wednesday afternoon and 11 players combined to produce 16 hits as the Susquehanna University Baseball team scored a 10-1 win over King's College in a non-conference tilt on Harold Bollinger Field in Selinsgrove.

Susquehanna (11-11) opened the scoring with a single run in the second inning as Ben Burman produced a sacrifice fly to score Dylan Jenkins from third.

King's (10-8) tied the game in the top of the third but the River Hawks took the lead for good with another run in the fourth inning as Cole Luzins and Burman each doubled in the inning with Burman knocking in his second run of the game.

Susquehanna added two more runs in the first and one in the sixth before pouring it on with a three-run seventh and capping the scoring with two more runs in the eighth.

Taylor Luckenbill, Zach Leone, Jenkins, Luzins, Cory Fallon and Burman all had two hits each in the balanced attack. Luzins scored a pair of runs while Burman, Leone and Connor Pelletier had two runs batted in each.

Ryan Beckwith started and went five innings and James Panzarino threw three innings to earn the win and Liam Conboy threw the final inning. The trio combined for seven strike outs and did not allow an extra base hit.

The River Hawks are scheduled to play a three-game Landmark Conference series at Moravian with a doubleheader Saturday and a single game Sunday.
