Baseball Splits First meeting with Monroe

In game one, Noah Suarez took the ball in a tough 4 inning effort yielding 7 runs that came off 2 homeruns and one timely RBI-Double that allowed the Tribune's to take the early lead.

The Saints fought back scoring a few runs late off a Kenny Robinson RBI-Triple and a Josh Anderson RBI single to put across the third run. Zach Barrett took over in the fifth, putting a stop to the Tribune offense the remainder of the game yielding just 2 runs on 4 hits in 5 innings of work.

The Saints never crossed anymore runs after 6th, dropping game one 9-3. In the nightcap of the twinbill, freshman SS/RHP Josh Anderson delivered a stellar performance on the mound earning his second win of the year in his third outing of seven or more innings during an appearance.

Anderson tossed 8 complete scattering 6 hits for 6 runs while dishing out 8 Strikeouts to pace the Saints. The offense exploded first right away scoring 5 in the bottom of the first to take an early lead.

Anderson settled in after giving up 3 in the first off a 3 run homerun to not allow another run until his final inning (8th). Freshman third basemen struck gold again in timely fashion extending the lead to 6-3 by launching a solo shot to deep left center for his second dinger in as many days.

In the 7th, sophomore centerfield put the nail in the coffin by jacking his second no-doubter at Hirtzel Field, putting the Saints up 14-6 with his 3 run home run.

The closer Logan Snyder relieved Anderson in the 9th - slamming the door facing four batters, walking one and striking out another. The offense was lead by 2-hit performances from Chamberlain, Tisch, Robinson while Tyler Cannon added 3 hits.

Tisch, Chamberlain, and Donachie added doubles. After 6 games in three days, The Saints have a small break before hosting OCCAC opponent Clark State in a 4 game set this weekend at Hirtzel Field.
