La Salle (29-16, 12-4) won three of four contests over Saint Joseph's (15-15, 9-7) this past weekend, extending their cushion atop the Atlantic 10 North Division. The 29 wins are the second-most in program history, trailing the 1985 squad that collected 31 wins. 

Colin Scanlon tossed a gem on Friday for the Explorers, hurling eight shutout innings while scattering five hits. He whiffed seven and improved to 6-2 on the season to go along with a 3.29 ERA. Ryan Guckin remained hot at the plate, driving in seven runs over the weekend, while Tatem Levins picked up seven hits and drove in six. 

The Explorers will travel to Fordham for a four-game set this weekend before finishing the regular season with another four-game set against Saint Joseph's.
