SELINSGROVE, Pa. – The Susquehanna baseball team picked up its 22nd win of the season and ninth victory in the past 10 games with Wednesday's 8-1 win over Albright.

SU (22-10) pounded out 12 hits, seven of which went for extra bases, including a homer off the bat of Mark Weaver in what marked his first career hit.

The Crusaders used 24 players in the game, including six pitchers who combined to give up just one run on four hits.

Justin Cassinelli and Bryan Palsi each drove in two runs including Cassinelli's lead-off home run in the first inning.

That home run gave SU the 1-0, first-inning lead and the Crusaders never looked back. In the third inning, Cassinelli drove in another run with a double to right center and Palsi's double to right center plated two more runs for a 4-0 game.

Albright (5-23) got on the board with a single run in the top of the fourth but that marked the team's lone run of the game.

Taylor Luckenbill's RBI single to center upped Susquehanna's lead to five, 6-1. A sac fly and wild pitch allowed two more runs to score in the seventh before Weaver's eighth-inning home run over the right field fence gave SU the 8-1 advantage.

Liam Conboy then retired the side in order in the ninth to end the game.

Susquehanna remains at home to host Scranton in a three-game series beginning with 1 p.m. doubleheader on April 23.
