LOUDONVILLE — Sophomore Jared Jensen scattered five hits in a complete-game performance Sunday to lead the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute baseball team to a 7-0 victory over Union in the championship game of the Liberty League playoffs at Siena College.

The league championship was the first since 2008 for the Eng­ineers (28-13), who earned an automatic bid to the NCAA Division III tournament.

Engineers shortstop Jonny Rio went 2-for-4 with an RBI, and was named the tournament’s most val­uable player.

The Engineers wasted no time getting to Union starter Jamie Faber, scoring three runs in the top of the first inning.

Tyler Listing led off with a single, Andrew Kalish walked and Tim LeSeur singled to load the bases.

Rio followed with an RBI single, Shane Matthews brought in the second run with a fielder’s choice, and Michael Croke drove home the third run with a single.
