BOXSCORE2 NORRISTOWN, PA (4/17/04) - Mustering just eight hits in two games, Saint Joseph's (7-31, 2-9 A-10) was swept in an Atlantic 10 baseball doubleheader by Massachusetts (12-10, 4-4 A-10) at Elmwood Park's Latshaw-McCarthy Field, 3-0, and 10-0. Freshman Mike Gentile had three of SJU's eight hits. A well pitched first game, both starting pitchers went the distance in the opener with UM's Eric Chown (4-2) picking up the win against SJU's Ryan Hoagey (1-5). Chown scattered four hits and struckout five without a walk to claim the victory. Hoagey, meanwhile surrendered three runs on eight hits with three strikeouts. The Minutemen tallied twice in the second inning and Frank Curreri cracked a solo home run to lead off the third to account for all three UMass runs. Adam Stojanowski finished with three hits, while Derrick Durepo and Curreri each had two. Sophomore Ryan Stadanlick added a pair of hits for the Hawks. In the second game, Massachusetts received a complete game from Matt Torra (4-2) tossed a complete game to gain the win. He allowed four hits and struckout eight with one walk. Freshman Adriano Petrutz (2-3) pitched into the seventh inning for the Hawks, allowing eight runs (four earned) on eight hits. UMass tallied single runs in the second, third and fourth innings and then added two more in the sixth before breaking the game open with five runs in the seventh inning. Stojanowski added three more hits and Durepo two more for UMass. Gentile added a pair of knocks for SJU. The two teams will complete their three game A-10 series on Sunday with a single nine inning game that begins at noon.
