DeLAND, Fla. – The Saint Joseph’s baseball team fell to Western Michigan, 9-2, in the Westin Lake Mary Stetson Invitational at Melching Field on Saturday afternoon.  Marc Giacalone rapped out a pair of hits for the Hawks on the day.

Western Michigan (4-5) struck first as a single by Jesse Forestell brought home Tanner Allison with the game’s first run.

Saint Joseph’s (0-8) equalized in the top of the fourth, however, as three walks loaded the bases for Peter Sitaras, whose sacrifice fly brought home Brian Lau to tie the game.

The Broncos answered in the bottom half, plating three to go ahead for good.  After two quick outs to start the frame, consecutive singles were followed by an error that loaded the bases for Nick Vogelmeier, who cleared them with a double to give WMU a 4-1 lead.

Sitaras and Giacalone led off the seventh for the Hawks with consecutive singles before a walk to Deon Stafford, Jr., loaded the bases.  Cal Jadacki followed with a sacrifice fly to cut the deficit to two, but reliever Brandon Petersen was able to escape further damage in the frame.

In the bottom of the inning, WMU sent nine hitters to the plate, breaking the game open with four hits, a walk, and a hit batsman.  The Broncos would finish the scoring in the eighth on a single by Allison.

Gabe Berman got the win for Western Michigan, allowing one run on three hits and two walks in two and two-thirds innings of relief.  Lucas Rollins took the loss, allowing four runs – three of them unearned – on six hits in five and two-thirds innings.  Petersen earned the three-inning save for WMU.

The Hawks will wrap up their participation in the Westin Lake Mary Stetson Invitational on Sunday with an 11:00 a.m. matchup with Connecticut.
