Box Score

WINTER PARK, FL - Junior Jeff Williams tossed seven strong innings and Matt Godusky broke the game open with a key three-run double as Saint Joseph's (1-10) upended Boston College (8-2) at Alfond Stadium to earn the team's first win of the season, 6-2.

SJU built a 2-0 lead with single runs in the second and fifth innings. Senior Greg Mason scored the game's first run when he led off the second with a double. He later scored on a single by sophomore Jeremy Jakubowski. SJU added another run in the fifth on a solo home run by sophomomre Mike Blahusch.

BC cut the lead in half with a solo home run. The lone run charged to Williams. He went seven strong innings scattering four hits and striking out four, while walking just one, to earn the win.

The Crimson and Gray answered back and took control of the game in the bottom half of the frame, scoring four times. With one out, sophomore Jereme Scott singled and stole second. Andrew Heineman and Tim Smith then walked to load the bases. The eagles then coaxed a strikeout, but a passed ball advanced all of the runners and gave SJU its third run. Adriano Petrutz then walked to reload the bases, before Godusky smacked a three-run double down the right field line.

BC added a single run in the eighth off Joel Grimshaw to close out the scoring. Mark Imbo pitched the final two frames for SJU.
