WILLIAMSBURG, Va.Tim Brennan unfurled a gem and Charlie Concannon put the Hawks on top to stay with a two-run home run as the Saint Joseph’s baseball team picked up a 3-2 win over William and Mary at Plumeri Park on Friday night.

Brennan allowed two runs, one earned, on five hits in eight and a third innings.  He struck out eight and did not walk a batter to improve to 1-2 on the season.

It was a pitcher’s duel early on, as the teams notched just a single baserunner apiece through three and a half innings.  The Tribe finally broke through in the bottom of the fourth, however, as Cullen Large singled, advanced on an error, and then came in to score on a single by Hunter Smith.

Saint Joseph’s (1-10) answered right away, however, as Cal Jadacki doubled with one out and Matt Cuppari followed with an RBI single up the middle.

In the sixth, Deon Stafford, Jr., drew a one-out walk to bring Concannon to the plate, and his home run down the line in right put the Hawks on top, 3-1.

After a throwing error and a single put runners on first and second in the bottom of the frame, Brennan retired the next seven hitters he faced to get the Hawks to the ninth with the lead.

William and Mary (7-6) threatened in the ninth, but ultimately failed to complete the comeback.  Smith led off the inning by reaching on an error, and two batters later, Brennan hit Charles Ameer to put runners on the corners with one out.  Lucas Rollins came in from the bullpen, but an error on an attempted steal scored Smith and put the tying run on second.

Rollins then fanned Patrick Ryan for the second out, but Kyle Wrighte’s infield single put the tying run 90 feet away from pinch hitter Matthew Keane, but Keane lofted a fly ball to center that Peter Sitaras squeezed for the final out to secure the victory.

The save is the first of Rollins’ collegiate career in just his third relief outing.  Nick Brown took the loss in a strong outing for the Tribe, allowing three runs on six hits and a walk to go with 11 strikeouts in seven innings of work.

Saint Joseph’s will meet Yale on Saturday in a neutral site matchup at Plumeri Park.  First pitch is set for noon.
