Saint Joseph's baseball
Saint Joseph's and UMass concluded their weekend set on Saturday in Amherst with a doubleheader that included 66 hits, 54 runs, and 14 errors. The Hawks salvaged a victory in the nightcap to stop their five-game losing skid. 

Saint Joseph's had a 9-1 lead in the second inning of Game 1, but poor fielding allowed the Minutemen to push seven unearned runs across the plate over the following seven frames en route to a 13-12 victory. 

Brendan Hueth finished with four hits and four RBIs in the loss, while Andrew Cossetti finished 2-for-4 with a homer. Nate Thomas also drove in three runs for the Hawks. 

The Haws committed seven errors in Game 1, marking a season-high. The program record in a game is 10, last reached in 2003 in an early-season contest against Tulane.

Luke Smith surrendered 13 hits for the Hawks over 5 1/3 innings. 

Luca Trigiani came through with the deciding blast for the Hawks in the nightcap, hitting a three-run homer in the eighth to break a tie and ultimately give the Hawks a 16-13 win. 

It was a career game for Trigiani, who finished 4-for-5 with a pair of homers and seven RBIs. Conlan Wall also had a strong game at the plate for the Hawks, finishing 3-for-6 with two RBIs. 

Matt McShane picked up the victory in relief, tossing three scoreless innings while collecting five strikeouts. Mike Falco was also impressive in relief, scattering one hit over 4 1/3 scoreless innings. 

The two clubs combined for 84 runs on 105 hits over the three-game set. 

The Hawks return to action on Tuesday with Lehigh paying a visit to Smithson Field.
