PHILADELPHIA, Pa. — The No. 14-ranked Princeton University Tigers steamrolled the LaSalle University Explorers, 20-5, on the road at Kirk Pool.

The Tigers put the game away with a shutout in the third stanza, scoring seven times. Princeton led 16-4 after 24 minutes and cruised to its fifth straight victory.
