Collins' seven-RBI day leads FAU in rout

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. -- Junior Roman Collins tallied seven RBI on two extra-base hits as No. 20 Florida Atlantic shut out Bethune-Cookman 15-0 on the road on Wednesday.

The Owls (19-3), who have won 12 of their past 13 games, built up a lead while sophomore Sean Labsan dealt a no-hitter into the fifth inning. The southpaw struck out five and allowed just one hit on the night.

Nine players had hits and nine had runs for FAU, including Stephen Kerr who drew three walks and scored three times on the night. Brendon Sanger went 3-for-4 with three runs and a pair of walks, along with two RBI.

After scoring two runs in the second, the Owls loaded the bases on four walks and a single in the fourth, scoring two runs and leaving the bases loaded for Collins. The centerfielder then hit a double off the wall to clear the bases, increasing the FAU lead to 7-0.

The Owls tacked on two more in the fifth as Kerr doubled and he and Kevin Abraham came in to score in the inning.

Christian Dicks walked and CJ Chatham and Abraham each singled to load the bases in the seventh. Kerr drove in a run on a fielder's choice and a wild pitch let Chatham score to push the advantage to 9-0.

In the top of the ninth, Randy Oliva and Ryan Miller walked before a Brett Lashley single plated Oliva. Sanger walked to load the bases for Collins once more. He sent a 1-2 pitch to the warning track for his second triple of the season, clearing the bases once more for his fifth, sixth and seventh RBI of the game.
