Miami's first two hitters reached safely, sparking a 2-0 lead after just one-half inning. Honchel beat out an infield single before Alex Johnson doubled to the gap in left center to put runners on second and third. A sacrifice fly to center by Kevin Bower, his first of two on the day, plated a run. After Johnson stole third, he came home on an infield error.
Honchel scored runs in the fourth and seventh to make the score 4-0. He led off the fourth with a single to center, then came home two outs later on a double by Nate Bowles. In the seventh, he drew a walk, took third on a double by Johnson and scored when Bowers flied out to left.
Meanwhile, Fiala (2-2) was in high gear most of the day. He faced the minimum through three innings before running into a jam in the fourth. A single and walk by the first two batters started the Navy rally. The Carmel, Ind., native fanned the next two before a walk loaded the bases. He then induced a ground ball to second baseman Matt Packer, who adjusted at the last minute for a bad hop, to end the threat.
The RedHawks (7-7) added two in the ninth when Chad Sedio registered his second hit of the day, a leadoff triple to deep right center. Honchel doubled down the left field line on the next pitch, then scored on a two-out single by Bowles.
Miami finished the day with 10 hits, eight of which came in lineup spots one through four. Johnson and Bowles tallied a pair, while Bower was 1-for-3.
Fiala's 13 strikeouts were the most since John Ely registered 14 Ks against Bowling Green on April 27, 2007.
Navy starter Anthony Parenti (1-1) took the loss, allowing three runs and five hits over 4.2 innings. Brad Borosak had both hits for the Midshipmen (6-11), one of which came on a chopper to short.
Miami wraps up its spring trip Saturday morning with a 10 a.m. contest against Valparaiso. The RedHawks will be looking for their sixth win in seven tries in the Sunshine State.
