NORRISTOWN, PA (04/01/02) - Junior Scott Fremont made his first appearance on the mound in nearly 21 months and the Saint Joseph's offense erupted for 17 runs and 16 hits en route to a 17-1 victory over Haverford at Elmwood Park's Latshaw-McCarthy Field. With the win SJU improved to 4-20-1, while Haverford fell to 7-10. Coming off a disappointing weekend series in Dayton, SJU received the lift it needed when Fremont climbed onto the hill against the Fords. The team's ace in 2000, who missed the entire 2001 season and the first two months of 2002 after undergoing surgery to repair shrinkage of the shoulder capsule in his right arm, made his first start since May 13, 2000. One of the Hawks' tri-captains, Fremont appeared rusty, but threw two scoreless innings, allowing just one hit and striking out three. A healthy return by the big right-hander would be a huge boost to SJU's talented, but inexperienced pitching staff. While Fremont's return was part of the story, the Hawk attack also came alive. Banging out 16 hits and aided by seven haverford errors, SJU erupted for its highest scoring output of the season. Six different Hawks notched at least two hits, including seniors Pace Bradshaw (2-4, 2 runs) and Justin Godusky (2-4, 2 RBI), juniors Kevin Dougher (2-5, 2 runs, 2 RBI), Jim Kelly (3-4, 1 runs, 2 RBI) and John Kokol (2-4, 2 RBI) and sophomore Justin Wolfer (2-4, 2 runs). On the Hill, freshman Brian Anecharico earned his first collegiate win in relief after tossing five innings. Anecharico allowed just three hits and one run, while walking four and striking out five. Ned Macey, who pitched well but was victimized by poor defense behind him, suffered the loss for the Fords. SJU next takes the field on Wednesday afternoon at Veterans Stadium, when the Hawks face Delaware in the semifinals of the Liberty Bell Classic at 3:00 PM. The Crimson and Gray were initially slated to play Temple on Tuesday evening at 7:00 PM and later at 3:00 PM, but scheduling conflicts among the participating teams brought about the change.
