BOXSCORE2 RICHMOND (3/27/04) - A pair of quality starts by freshman Adriano Petrutz and junior Ryan Hoagey were not enough as Saint Joseph's (4-22, 0-2 A-10) was edged twice and swept in a conference opening doubleheader by Richmond (13-9, 2-0 A-10), 2-0 and 5-4, at Pitt Field. In game one, UR junior right-hander Jason Bolinski threw his second career shutout in a 2-0 win against Saint Joseph's in both team's Atlantic 10 opener Saturday afternoon Bolinski's shutout was aided by the return of senior center fielder Bryan Pritz whose sensational defense preserved a precarious two-run lead. Pritz robbed Hawk centerfielder Ryan Stadanlick of a game-tying, two-run homer in the sixth and then tracked down a line drive, making a basket catch in the seventh. After two scoreless innings, the Spiders scratched home a run in the bottom of the third and added an insurance run in the fifth. Bolinski (2-0) struck out seven and walked one, facing only 25 batters in 7.0 innings. Hawk starter Adriano Petrutz (2-1) worked a six-inning complete game, allowing two runs, one earned, and striking out four. It marked the freshman's first complete game in his second start. In game two, senior Jim O'Leary's walk, with the bases loaded in the bottom of the seventh, scored the winning run and Richmond defeated Saint Joseph's, 5-4, completing a sweep of this afternoon's doubleheader. The Hawks' (4-22, 0-2) Jason Tarewicz led the team with two hits and two RBI. The Spiders led 2-1 after two innings, but the Hawks posted one run a piece in the third, fourth and fifth innings before the Spiders tallied two runs in the sixth. Fto tie the score at 4-4. In the bottom of the seventh, the bases were loaded with two outs when O'Leary drew a walk forcing the winning run to cross the plate.
