PHILADELPHIA (5/09/02) -- A grand slam by Drexel senior Bruce Boehm keyed a six-run fourth inning sparked the Dragon baseball team to an 8-1 victory over Saint Joseph's at Drexel Field. DU starter Shane Carroll went the distance to improve to 3-2 in a seven-inning game that was called after 6 1/2 innings due to darkness. With the victory Drexel improves to 18-33, while the Hawks fall to 14-35-1. With the game knotted at 1-1 after three innings, DU plated six runs in the fourth. A single and three walks opened the inning for Drexel. Boehm then hit the slam off Hawk reliever to Al Braun . Hawk starter Brian Anecharico , who suffered his first loss as a collegian to fall to 2-1, opened the inning, but was unable to retire a batter. Braun then walked a batter before surrendering the round tripper. Drexel managed to push across one more run to make the score 7-1 after four and tacked on a single run in the sixth to close out the scoring. Boehm went 3-4 with a single, double, home run and five RBI for Drexel. SJU was limited to just two hits, its lowest total of the season. Junior Mike DeLorenzo had a double and scored the Hawks' only run. A unique contest, SJU actually served as the home team even though the game was played at Drexel. SJU was unable to use Latshaw-McCarthy Field in Norristown, Pa., its usual home turf, due to a scheduling conflict. The loss by the Crimson and Gray was the team's 35th of the year tying a season mark. The Hawks conclude the year with a three-game Atlantic 10 series at Temple this weekend. SJU still clings to a slim hope of earning a berth in the A-10 Championship Tournament entering the series. Drexel, meanwhile takes on Hofstra this weekend.
