Dartmouth used a five-run third and a four-run fifth to break free from Siena in a 15-7 non-league win Wednesday in New Hampshire. Vincent Citro had three hits for the Saints, and Brian Fay homered for the second straight game.
Dartmouth (12-1) led 3-0 after two innings, but Siena (6-16) exploded for six runs in the third to take an early 6-3 lead. Citro tripled home Siena's first run, and Mike Fish and Larry Balkwill followed with RBI singles. Fay's three-run blast with one out highlighted the rally.
The Big Green answered right back with five runs in the bottom of the third to retake the lead for good. They put the game away with four runs in the fifth, and added three more in the eighth.
Matt McDowell had three hits and three RBI, Dustin Seltzer had three hits and two runs scored and Jeff Keller and Nick Ruppert each had two hits and two RBI for Dartmouth. Nick Lombardi drove in four runs, three coming on his eighth inning home run.
Dartmouth's last five pitchers combined to allow just six hits and two runs over the last 6.2 innings.
Fish's average rose over .350 with a 2-for-4 day at the plate for Siena.
The Saints have their home opener Thursday at 3 p.m. against Marist.
