MERION STATION, Pa. – The Saint Joseph’s baseball team reached the 30-win mark for the first time in program history on Tuesday afternoon, hitting the mark with a 5-1 win over Delaware at Smithson Field.  Junior Stefan Kancylarz was 3-for-3 with two runs scored, while junior Brian O'Keefe ended the day a home run shy of the cycle. Freshman Brian Lau added three hits as well.

Saint Joseph’s (30-11) took the lead in the second as Mike Muha reached on an error and Kancylarz followed with a double.  Kevin Kratochwill then grounded out to short to score Muha and give the Hawks a 1-0 lead.

Delaware (21-22) answered in the top of the fourth as Alex Mottle walked and scored on a double by Ryan Hartley.

SJU took the lead back with a three-spot in the fifth.  Kancylarz led off the frame with his second double of the day before Kratochwill was hit by a pitch.  Taylor Boyd then singled to left to load the bases for Lau, whose double to left plated a pair and put the Hawks back on top.  After Chris Hueth reached on a fielder’s choice, O’Keefe ripped a triple to left center to extend the lead to 4-1.

Kancylarz pushed the lead to 5-1 in the bottom of the eighth with a leadoff home run to close out the scoring.

Matt Haskins improved to 2-0 on the season, tossing an inning and a third of scoreless relief for the Hawks.  Nick Moylan took the loss for Delaware, allowing three runs on five hits, to fall to 1-1.

The Hawks return to conference action this weekend as SJU kicks off a three-game series at George Mason on Friday at 3:00 p.m.
