WINTER HAVEN, FL Freshman Seth Tressler (Howard/Bellefonte) tripled and scored the winning run in the top of the seventh to lead Mansfield to a 5-4 win over Rockhurst in the nightcap of a doubleheader Tuesday at the RussMatt Invitational in Winter Haven, FL.

Rockhurst held on for a 14-12 win in the opener.

In the nightcap, Mansfield scored three runs in the third with two of them coming on a single by Dan Chevalier (Herndon,VA/Herndon), and led 4-2 when Rockhust scored twice in the bottom of the sixth to tie the game. With one out in the top of the seventh Tressler lined a drive off the centerfield fence and used his speed to stretch a double into a triple. The next batter, Mike Hartz (Dauphin/Central Dauphin), ground out to the left side of the infield with Tressler scoring what proved to be the winning run on the play.

Bernard Johnson (Corning,NY/East), who had come into the game in relief of starter Mike Martin (Stevensville/Wyalusing)  in the fifth, returned the side in order , including a strikeout, in the bottom of the seventh to pick up the win. Johnson went 1 2/3 innings giving up two hits and striking out one. Martin scattered five hits over 5 1/3 innings striking out four and walking one.

Chris Coleman (Carbondale/Carbondale) led the offense going 3-3 from the plate with two doubles and a RBI. Tressler went 2-4 including a triple and also had two stolen bases. Kevin Miller (Kenvil,NJ/Roxbury) was 2-4.

In the opener, Rockhurst broke up a 3-3 tie after the first three innings but scoring 11 runs over the next three innings to take a 14-4 lead into the bottom of the sixth.

In the sixth, Mansfield exploded for eight runs on eight hits but could pull no closer. Matt Hamilton (Roundhill,VA/Loundon Valley)paced the offense going 2-4 with a double and home runs while driving in three runs. The home run was his second of the season and came with a runner on in the second.
