Senior right-hander Alex Kalogrides (1-0) earned his first win of the season, tossing three shutout innings. Senior right-hander Doug Murray earned the first save for USF on the year with a scoreless ninth.

Derek Poppert, Stephen Yarrow and Matt Chavez all drove in a run for the Dons, while Connor Bernatz and Chavez each collected a pair of hits.
