Monmouth dominated the ballgame, allowing only three runs and scoring 10. It was a good all-around game for Monmouth while Seton Hall struggled throughout, having to switch its bullpen five times in the first five innings.
Junior James Kelly did allow one run in the 1st inning but for the rest of the game, he only allowed three hits until the fourth where he was relieved. He was definitely one of the key reasons why Monmouth took an easy lead at the beginning of the game and never let the Seton Hall batters get any rhythm.
