ELON, N.C. – The Saint Joseph’s baseball team clinched a share of the Elon Invitational tournament title with a 4-1 win over High Point at Latham Park on Sunday afternoon.  Senior Jordan Carter earned his first win of the season, while senior Chris Hueth scored a pair of runs in the game.

The Hawks won two out of three over the weekend, as did High Point.  Elon can also claim a share of the title with a win over Gardner-Webb later on Sunday.

Neither team was able to light up the scoreboard until Saint Joseph’s (3-3) broke through in the fifth.  Taylor Boyd led off the frame with a walk before Hueth drew a free pass three batters later to put runners on first and second with two outs.  Brian O’Keefe and Collin Forgey followed with consecutive RBI singles to give the Hawks a 2-0 lead.

High Point (7-5) got one back in the bottom half of the inning on a two-out, bases-loaded walk by Josh Spano.

The Hawks extended the lead in the seventh.  Singles by Ryan Pater and Hueth, followed by a groundout, left runners on second and third with two away before Forgey walked to load the bases.  Stefan Kancylarz then hit a groundball to second, but High Point’s Chris Clare couldn’t handle it, allowing Pater to score and extend the lead to two.  Tommy Cunningham followed and was hit with the first pitch of his at bat, bringing home Hueth to make it a 4-1 game.

Lansing Veeder came on and tossed a perfect ninth for his first save, preserving the win for Carter.  Carter (1-1) allowed one run on four hits, striking out six in five innings.  Jack Stover worked three shutout innings as well, fanning two against one walk.

Andre Scrubb took the loss for the Panthers to fall to 0-2 on the year.

Cunningham, Hueth, and O’Keefe have reached base in all six games this season; Hueth’s streak reaches back to the final 13 games of the 2013 season as well.  O’Keefe has also notched at least one hit in each game thus far this season.

The Hawks are slated to open the home portion of their schedule on Friday at Smithson Field against Iona.  First pitch is set for 3:00 p.m.
