Saint Joseph's baseball
In a non-conference clash at Smithson Field on Tuesday afternoon, Rutgers seized control early, putting up 11 runs in the third inning and securing a 15-9 victory over the Hawks. 
Saint Joseph's showed promise with a strong start, notching five runs in the second inning, albeit with much of the damage coming from a series of defensive miscues including throwing errors and a wild pitch. 
However, Rutgers swiftly turned the tide in the subsequent inning with an impressive two-out rally, capitalizing on a combination of eight hits, two walks, and errors to rack up 11 runs. 
Despite standout performances from players like Ryan Weingartner, who continued his streak with a third consecutive game with a home run and a 3-for-5 performance at the plate, Saint Joseph's couldn't bridge the gap. 
Rutgers further widened their lead to 14-5 with additional runs in the fourth and fifth innings. 
Colin Yablonski took the loss for Saint Joseph's, surrendering eight runs, though none earned, and allowing five hits and a pair of walks over 2 2/3 innings. 
Looking ahead, Saint Joseph's (2-3) will regroup for a doubleheader against Bucknell on Saturday, followed by a single game against the Bison at Smithson Field on Sunday.
