Poughkeepsie, NY - A single to rightfield in the seventh inning by sophomore Jeff Dietz lifted Brown to a 7-6 come from behind victory over Marist on Tuesday. In a shortened game two, the Red Foxes defeated the Bears 5-1. Senior Danny Hughes tied the game at six all with a single to leftfield earlier in the seventh inning of the night cap after Marist tied the game with a run in the fifth.
