Gagne came up clutch with two out again with a perfectly executed bunt an run play, scoring Richardson to extend the SJC advantage to 9-7.

ON THE MOUND:
Sophomore starter Zach Begin (Georgetown, Mass.) did not factor into the decision after allowing six runs off eight hits and three walks while fanning six batters over six innings. Sophomore Kristian Harris (Salem, N.H.) and freshman Nick Iannuzzi (Peabody, Mass.) worked through the fifth inning before junior Weston Bergeron (Lyman, Maine) and sophomore Jonathan Marchia (Chicopee, Mass.) – who earned his second win of the year - combined to throw four no-hit innings in relief while fanning four batters and walking a pair.

Illinois-Wesleyan employed six pitchers in the setback, as sophomore starter Eric Bennes (Palatine, Ill.) allowed four runs off four hits over two innings, sophomore Cooper Kraft (Morton, Ill.) allowed a run in 0.1 inning of relief, sophomore Brady Hough (Germantown Hills, Ill.) worked around three hits over 2.2 scoreless frames, and sophomore Dan Trudeau (Mokena, Ill.) gave up two runs off four hits in two innings of work. Sophomore Dan Cerniglia (Park Ridge, Ill.) suffered the loss after allowing a run off a hit in 0.1 inning of relief and junior Casey Becker (Carol Stream, Ill.) closed out the game by yielding a run off three hits in 1.2 innings.

OFF THE BAT:
  • Gagne went 4-5 with a run, a triple, a stolen base, and three RBI
  • Richardson was 3-5 with three runs, a pair of triples, and three RBI
  • Johnson added two hits, two runs, and a double in four at bats
  • Senior first baseman Noah McDaniel (Eliot, Maine) was 2-5 with a double and an RBI
  • Illinois-Wesleyan junior first baseman Dalton Fletcher (Athens, Ill.) paced the Titans' offense by going 3-5 with a run, a double, and two RBI
NOTEWORTHY:
The Titans' head coach, Dennis Martel, is a Maine native who attended Marshwood High School and graduated from the University of Maine-Orono…along with SJC Head Coach Will Sanborn '86, he was inducted into the Maine Baseball Hall of Fame in 2013…the uncle of former SJC left-handed pitcher Kyle Dorr '10, Martel guided IWU to the NCAA DIII Championship in 2010.

HISTORICALLY SPEAKING:
Saint Joseph's is now 1-1 all time versus Illinois-Wesleyan – a team that defeated the Monks by an 8-6 score on March 11th, 2017.

TRIP RECAP:
  • The Monks hit .343 (104-303) and outscored their opponents by an aggregate 88-33 margin in the nine games combined
  • Gagne hit an even .500 (17-34) with 15 runs, a triple, 12 stolen bases, and seven RBI in nine games
  • Richardson enjoyed an outstanding trip, hitting .464 (13-28) with 15 runs, three triples, a home run, four steals, and seven RBI; he currently leads the Monks in slugging (.786) and OBP (.545)

USM Splits on Opening Day
Huskies Rally in 9th to Down M.I.T., Fall to Trinity by a Run
            HARTFORD, Conn. -- The University of Southern Maine baseball team opened its 2019 season splitting a pair of games Saturday at the Bantam Baseball Bonanza held at Trinity College.  The Huskies scored two runs in the bottom of the ninth inning to defeat M.I.T. 3-2 in their first game of day.  In the nightcap, host Trinity built an early 5-0 lead, then hung on to down USM 5-4.

            In the opening game of the event, M.I.T. scored in the bottom of the 10th inning to take an 8-7 win over Nichols College.  The tournament concludes Monday when M.I.T. takes on Trinity.

Game One

            Down a run heading into their final turn at bat, the Huskies plated two runs to take the win over M.I.T.  Junior Andrew Hillier (Bangor, Maine) opened the ninth drawing a walk and scored on classmate Dylan Hapworth's (Winslow, Maine) double to tie the game at 2-2.  Senior Jake Dexter (Oakland, Maine/Messalonskee) singled to put runners on the corners.  After a walk to senior Devin Warren (Smithfield, Maine/Messalonskee) loaded the bases, a popup was called on the infield fly rule.  The ball was not handled cleanly and Hapworth was able to scamper home as the throw to the plate was errant.

            Junior Colton Lawrence (Farmington, Maine/Mt. Blue) picked up the win with two innings of scoreless relief work.  Lawrence did not allow a hit or walk and struck out three.  USM's three hurlers combined for 15 strikeouts in the game.

            Southern Maine took a 1-0 lead in the first inning on Dexter's sacrifice fly.  M.I.T. plated a pair of unearned runs in the third inning on a passed ball and a sacrifice fly from senior Alec Kushner (Cooper City, Fla.).

Game Two

            The host Bantams built a 5-0 lead with a solo run in the first and four unearned runs in the third.  Junior Mark Lauder (Chappaqua, N.Y.) had a sacrifice fly to drive in the first-inning run, and an RBI single in the third.  Senior Johnny Stamatis (Ridgefield, Conn.) drove in two runs with a double, and rookie Mike Guanci (Wakefield, Mass.) plated the final Bantam run with a single.

            The Huskies clawed their way back into the game with two runs in the fourth on an RBI single from Warren and RBI groundout by sophomore Jason Komulainen (Gorham, Maine).

            USM cut the gap to one with two runs in the seventh.  Sophomore Sam Troiano (South Portland, Maine) led of the frame with a walk, and later score on a Hiller sacrifice fly.  The second run scored on a two-out infield error.

            The Huskies threatened in the eighth and ninth innings, but could not get a timely hit to tie the game.

            USM junior Andrew Olszak (Danvers, Mass.) was the lone repeat hitter for either team in the game with a pair of singles.  Junior right-hander Gage Feeney (Cutler, Maine/Washington Academy) was the tough-luck loser allowing five runs, only one which was earned.
