Concannon and Adams both stay hot as Saint Joseph's and Penn claim wins on Sunday

Charlie Concannon continues to swing a hot bat for Saint Joseph's
Charlie Concannon's hot bat continued to rake on Sunday as his two-run double highlighted a five-run seventh inning that led Saint Joseph's to a 6-3 victory over Manhattan at Smithson Field.

Marc Giacalone finished 3-for-4 and scored a pair of runs while driving in one. James McConnon chipped in with three hits of his own in the winning effort and drove in two.

Justin Aungst tossed seven innings to secure the win, surrendering three runs on six hits. He walked one and struck out six.

“A lot of credit to Justin for the way he threw the ball today,” head coach Fritz Hamburg said. “He got through a tough third inning and honestly, I thought he threw quality pitches in that inning for the most part. I was very pleased that he was able to execute his pitches in innings four through seven and adjust to Manhattan's offensive approach. His performance kept us within striking distance and as a result, we cashed in late in the game and that was enough for us to win the ballgame.”

With the win, the Hawks have won four of their last five contests.

Wagner 8, Villanova 4
David Gulati collected a career-high four hits and Ryan Toohers added two hits of his own and drove in a run.

Jimmy Kingsbury started for the Wildcats, tossing 5 1/3 innings while surrendering two runs on six hits.

Villanova committed four errors on the afternoon, leading to five unearned runs.

Fairleigh Dickinson 3, Penn 1 (Game 1)
Quakers starter Mitchell Holcomb managed five strikeouts and allowed just seven hits during a complete six innings of work.

Eduardo Malinowski finished 2-for-4 and Chris Adams scored Penn's lone run after reaching base on a walk in the third.

Penn 16, Fairleigh Dickinson 8 (Game 2)
Powered by an eight-run explosion in the fifth inning, the Quakers were able to split Sunday's doubleheader.

Chris Adams led the way finishing 4-for-6 with a pair of RBIs and three runs scored while Matt O'Neill hit a grand slam. Matt McGeagh drove in three runs and scored three times in the winning effort for the Quakers.

Adams finished the second game a homer short of hitting for the cycle.
