Keyed by senior Riley Stesiak's two-run triple, Albion scored six runs in the seventh inning and, for the third straight game, came from behind Tuesday to win -- this time 13-7 over Waynesburg University in Winter Haven, Fla.

In its first three games, all late-inning victories, Albion has scored 10 runs in the seventh inning and nine in the eighth.

And so it was again Tuesday when, trailing Waynesburg 7-6 heading into the bottom of the seventh, the Britons erupted for their rally. Junior Kellan Huang got it started by driving in a run with a bases loaded walk. Junior Andrew Arszulowski then deivered a run-scoring single and junior Alex Cull hit an RBI sacrifice fly. Stesiak followed wth a two-run triple and the sixth run scored on a Waynesburg throwing error. Cull also added an RBI single in the eighth.

Sophomore Matthew Althoff earned the win in relief of Huang, pitching 2 1/3 scoreless innings, allowing just two hits and striking out five.

Junior Drew Olszewski, who pitched the final two innings, also went three for five at the plate with a run scored and two RBI. Cull finished with three hits, two runs scored and two RBI and Arszulowski went three for five with two runs scored and an RBI. Stesiak finished with two runs scored and two RBI and freshman Mark Lauro also knocked in two runs.

Albion looks to run its opening-season winning streak to four Thursday when it plays Rose-Hulman in Auburndale, Fla.
