Johnson allowed three walks and struck out five batters during seven innings of work.

Stevens freshman Owen Taylor hit a triple in his second consecutive game to pace the Cardinals offense. Drew Grenier, Derrick Stanhope, Aidan Cahill and Brendan Bean all provided hits.

The Cards led, 6-0, before tacking on four more runs during the seventh. James Aiken, a senior newcomer to the squad, got things started with a two-run single for his first varsity hit.

“He’s a hard-working kid,” Silva said. “It was pretty special.”
