BRONX, N.Y. - A four-run fifth inning lifted Fordham to a 4-0 Atlantic 10 Conference victory over Saint Louis Saturday afternoon at Bahoshy Field.

The win boosted Fordham to 27-17 overall and 11-1 in the A-10. Saint Louis fell to 17-23, 4-6.

Laura Bohning doubled for the Billikens, while Rachel Faletto and Kelsey Biggs collected a single apiece.

Billiken hurler Julian Austin (3-7) limited Fordham to two hits through four innings, but the Rams broke through with four runs and four hits in the fifth. Jamie LaBovick had a two-run single, and Paige Ortiz made it 4-0 with a two-run home run.

Saint Louis put its leadoff batter on base four times, but only one Billiken got as far as third base. Fordham ace Jen Mineau (21-9) struck out 10, walked one and hit a batter.

The Billikens play a doubleheader at La Salle Sunday beginning at 11 a.m. (CT).
