GRANVILLE, Ohio--  Denison pounded out 18 hits and Will McManaman pitched five innings of one-run baseball to lead the Big Red to a 12-4 win over Ohio Northern. The victory improves Denison's record to 15-2, marking the best start in program history through 17 games.

The Big Red set the tone early, with four runs in the first inning off ONU starter Blake Lester.  Grady Paine drove in Cam Farren with an RBI single and the red-hot Max Lahn stroked a single to left-center, scoring Will Krushena and Paine.  Freshman catcher Daniel Spencer closed out the scoring in the first with an RBI single to left.

The Polar Bears plated a run in the second inning on a base hit by Tyler Randick.

Denison responded with one run in the third, one in the fifth and another in the sixth off a Will Krushena double to right field.

The Big Red held a 7-1 lead entering the seventh, but Corey McMann made it a 7-3 game with a two-run home run to left off DU reliever Mikey Rivera.  With a runner on third and two outs, Rivera struck out Krue Thwaits to end the inning and preserve a 7-3 lead.

In the top of the eighth, ONU trimmed the deficit to three when Cam Thomas reached on a throwing error that scored Michael Rocco.

In the bottom of the eighth, Denison extended its lead when Krushena spanked a bases loaded double to left-center, scoring Ty Robinson, Paine and Ryan Mitchell.  Lahn followed with a bunt single, later scoring on Brian McAuliffe's double.

Lahn was 4-for-5 with two RBIs and three runs scored.  Over his last four games, Lahn is batting .823 (14-for-17) with eight runs scored and six RBIs.  He leads the Big Red with a .524 batting average.

Krushena and Paine also went 4-for-5.  Krushena led the team with four RBIs and three runs scored.  Pain scored three runs and had one RBI.  Spencer was 3-for-4 with a walk and one RBI and McAuliffe finished the day 2-for-5 with two RBIs.

McManaman improved to 3-0 by pitching 5.0 innings.  He allowed five hits and one earned run while striking out five. Caleb Struewing pitched a scoreless sixth before turning it over to Rivera who allowed two earned runs on four hits in two innings.  The ninth inning went to Henry Haack who retired ONU in order.
