In the first game, Ricciardone allowed just three Dartmouth hits and did not surrender a walk through seven innings. The junior had one hit. Game 2 was no different as Ricciardone and Morgan Groom combined to hold Dartmouth without a hit through the first five innings. The Slidell, La., native posted four k’s.
