The Duke baseball team salvaged their series finale on Sunday at home against Towson with an 8-6 victory. Down 4-3 heading into the bottom of the 7th inning, the Blue Devils turned that deficit into an 8-4 lead after the eighth.
Chris Marconcini hit his third homerun of the season and his second in as many games to put the Blue Devils on the board in the 2nd inning (one of his two hits). Unfortunately, that lead did not last, as Towson scored three runs in the top of the 3rd inning against Duke starter Robert Huber.
Huber allowed four runs on five hits over 6.2 innings. He walked three and struck out seven. Remy Janco earned the win with 1/3 of an inning of relief. He struck out the only batter he faced with a runner on base.
Duke pounded out 13 hits. Catcher Mike Rosenfeld went 3-for-3 with three RBIs. He hit a double and had a sac fly. Jeff Kremer went 2-for-2 with three walks and Jordan Betts went 2-for-5.
Towson collected eight hits, with Peter Bowles going 3-for-3 in the loss.
The Blue Devils welcome Penn to town for midweek games on Tuesday and Wednesday before heading to Miami for their first ACC series on Friday.
