4/3/15 – Monks Take Two from Raiders, 8-1 & 6-5

STANDISH, Maine – Saint Joseph’s College (10-10, 4-0 GNAC) swept a Great Northeast Athletic Conference (GNAC) doubleheader with Rivier University at Larry Mahaney Diamond on Friday afternoon. The Monks opened with an 8-1 triumph and edged the Raiders, 6-5, in the nightcap.

Due to the condition of the Raiders’ home field, Holman Stadium in Nashua, N.H., Rivier opted to play today’s twinbill at Mahaney Diamond and served as the home team for both contests.

GAME ONE - http://gomonks.com/sports/bsb/2014-15/files/riv1.htm
Rivier junior starter Edward Soucie (South Ryegate, Vt.) held Saint Joseph’s without a hit until the top of the fourth when senior catcher Joe Coyne (Duxbury, Mass.) delivered a one-out single to right-center. With the Raiders’ righthander throwing well, the Monks did not find the scoreboard until the fifth when sophomore right fielder Scott Betts (Peabody, Mass.) launched his first career home run, a two-run shot that landed well beyond the left field wall.

Freshman hurler Steven Albert (Worcester, Mass.), making his first NCAA start, was every bit as dominant as his counterpart and required little run support to earn his second win of the season, but the SJC offense provided a good deal of insurance by plating six runs off six hits and a pair of Rivier errors in the sixth.

Sophomore second baseman Taylor Black (Cardiff by the Sea, Calif.) led off with the sixth with a single up the middle and stole second and junior left fielder Taylor Reuillard (Biddeford, Maine) did the same before Coyne strode to the plate and delivered a two-run double to right field, making it a 4-0 contest. Freshman infielder Dan Marini (Nahant, Mass.) pinch ran for Coyne and scored on a Jameson Collins (Sandown, N.H.) base hit and sophomore center fielder Dennis Meehan (Gardiner, Maine) – who reached via hit by pitch – crossed the plate for the Monks’ sixth run when Betts rapped a single to the left side. With the bases loaded and one out, senior third baseman Lincoln Sanborn (Standish, Maine) hit a rope to second base, but an error was made on the play allowing both Collins and Betts to reach the plate, making it an 8-0 game.

The Raiders produced their lone run of the opener in the bottom of the seventh, when junior Michael Janerico (Waquiot, Mass.) walked and scored on a JJ Montello (Nashua, N.H.) double to right-center, accounting for the 8-1 final.

For the Monks, Coyne was 2-3 with a double and a pair of RBI and Betts went 2-3 with two runs, a homer and three RBI. Albert scattered five hits and walked one with six strikeouts and threw just 73 pitches over six innings. Freshman Marc Poirier (Lunenburg, Mass.) allowed one run off one hit and a walk in one inning of relief.

For the Raiders, junior Taylor Black (West Springfield, Mass.) was 2-3 and Souci falls to 1-1 on the season after allowing six runs off five hits and a walk with three strikeouts in six innings. Juniors Spencer Aquiar (Malden, Mass.) and Nick Gagnon (Providence, R.I.) combined to give up two runs (one earned) off four hits with a strikeout in 1.2 frames of relief.

GAME TWO - http://gomonks.com/sports/bsb/2014-15/files/riv2.htm
Saint Joseph’s fell victim to subpar defense in the nightcap, as the Royal Blue made four errors in a contest that stood at a 5-5 tie going into the top of the seventh. With the score deadlocked in the final frame, Betts led off with a single and moved up to second on a Collins sac bunt before scoring the eventual winning run when sophomore pinch hitter Dan Donovan (Lynn, Mass.) came through with a single up the middle.

St. Joe’s scored first in the closing contest, as Reuillard doubled to the base of the wall in center and raced home on a Brett Barbati (Melrose, Mass.) single to left-center in the top of the first.

The Raiders gained their first lead of the day with two runs off a pair of hits in the second, when Gagnon produced an RBI single and Montello worked a bases-loaded walk. Freshman starter Chris Gerossie (Chester, N.H.) worked out of a bases-full, two-out jam by inducing a fly out to left field.

The Monks managed to tie the game with a run in the third, as Black opened with a double down the right field line and later scored on a Coyne base knock.
Rivier scored three runs with the help of three SJC miscues in the bottom of the third. Black led off the inning with a single up the middle and eventually scored on a throwing error to make it a 3-2 game. With runners on second and third and one out, Head Coach Will Sanborn ’86 signaled for freshman reliever Travis Godbout (Portland, Maine) to intentionally walk sophomore Adam Arkell (Dover, N.H.), looking for a double play ball to end the inning. Junior reliever Riley Cox (Westford, Mass.) executed the plan, fielding a ground ball off the bat of Gagnon and throwing home to cut down Michael Scanlon (Plantsville, Conn.), but the throw to first sailed into right field, a play that resulted in two runners crossing the plate and the Raiders securing a 5-2 advantage.

Unfazed, the Monks plated a pair off two hits and a Rivier error in the top of the fourth. Sophomore shortstop Max McCoomb (South Berwick, Maine) was hit by a pitch to lead off the inning and quickly stole second before scoring on an error. Freshman Nick Mangiamelli (Suffield, Conn.), who reached base via the miscue, later scored on a Reuillard base hit through the right side, a play that cut the SJC deficit down to 5-4.

With Cox holding the Raiders’ offense in check, the Monks were able to tie the game once again with a run off two hits and an error in the fifth, when Betts singled and advanced to second on a throwing error, moved to third on a Collins base hit, and scored when McCoomb roped a sac fly to center field.

For the Monks, Reuillard went 4-4 with a run, a double, an RBI and a pair of stolen bases, Betts was 2-4 with two runs, and Coyne added two hits and an RBI in three at bats in the narrow victory. Junior reliever Corey McNamara (West Newbury, Mass.) improves to 1-1 on the season after allowing one hit with a strikeout in 1.1 innings of relief and Cox fanned five while yielding one hit in 3.1 dominant frames. Gerossie allowed four runs (two earned) off four hits and two walks with a pair of K’s and Godbout gave up an unearned run with a walk and a punch-out in 1/3 inning of middle relief.

Junior reliever Matthew Keefe (Bradford, Mass.) was hit with the loss for the Raiders after allowing two runs (one earned) off four hits in 2.1 innings of relief. Senior starter Alex Mears (Salem, N.H.) gave up four runs (two earned) off seven hits and a walk with three K’s in four innings and senior reliever Lucas Palma (Bristol, Conn.) allowed one hit in 2/3 inning. Rivier did not feature a repeat-hitter in the closing contest.

With the sweep, Saint Joseph’s improves to 20-1 in the history of the series with Rivier University and has now defeated the Raiders in 15 consecutive meetings dating back to the 2008 campaign.

Both teams return to conference play tomorrow, when Saint Joseph’s plays Albertus Magnus College in a doubleheader at SUNY-Purchase and Rivier faces Norwich University in a twinbill played at Franklin Pierce University.

4/4/15 – Monks Sweep Falcons, Meeken Throws One-Hitter

PURCHASE, N.Y. – Saint Joseph’s College (12-10, 6-0 GNAC) won both ends of a GNAC Baseball doubleheader with Albertus Magnus College (8-10, 3-3 GNAC) on Saturday afternoon. The Monks edged the Falcons by a 3-2 margin in the opener and completed the sweep with a 6-2 victory in the closing contest. Senior southpaw Dan Meeken (Marshfield, Mass.) tossed a complete-game one-hitter in the first game of the day.

With the two wins, Saint Joseph’s caps a stretch in which the team played six conference contests in a matter of three days. The Monks emerged victorious in all six games with the help of dominant pitching, as the SJC staff posted a collective 1.71 ERA with a .185 opponents’ batting average during the three-day span.

GAME ONE - http://gomonks.com/sports/bsb/2014-15/files/am1.htm
Meeken was certainly the story in the opening contest, but the day did not start off well for the lefthander, as the Falcons managed to score two runs off what turned out to be their only hit of the day in the bottom of the first frame.

Meeken opened the game with back-to-back walks, issuing free passes to Tyler Graziano (Trumbull, Conn.) and Nick Sedia (Bronx, N.Y.), and both runners moved up 90 feet on a groundout. With one out, junior third baseman Justin Poirier (Meriden, Conn.) entered the box and plated both runners with a single through the left side, lifting the hosts to an early 2-0 cushion.

Saint Joseph’s responded with a run in the top of the second. With two out, sophomore center fielder Dennis Meehan (Gardiner, Maine) earned a four-pitch walk and moved to third when sophomore shortstop Max McCoomb (South Berwick, Maine) doubled to left-center. Senior third baseman Lincoln Sanborn (Standish, Maine) reached via base on balls to load the bases for sophomore second baseman Taylor Black (Cardiff by the Sea, Calif.), who was hit by a pitch on a 1-1 count, a false move by Albertus starter Ryan Fowler (Cheshire, Conn.) that allowed Meehan to walk home from third and make it a 2-1 game.

Meeken settled in after the first inning and did not allow a baserunner until the bottom of the sixth when Graziano led off with a five-pitch walk. The leadoff free pass did not prove harmful however, as the senior hurler quickly erased the Albertus runner by picking him off at first.

With Meeken in the groove, the Monks gained momentum as the game moved along and capitalized by scoring single runs in the sixth and seventh en route to claiming the 3-2 victory. In the sixth, sophomore pinch hitter Dan Donovan (Lynn, Mass.) led off and delivered a double to left field before being removed from the bases in favor of senior pinch runner Anthony Zawistowski (Otisville, N.Y.), who promptly swiped third base. With one out, McCoomb sent Zawistowski home with a single to right, tying the game at 2-2 heading into the bottom of the sixth.

In the seventh, junior left fielder Taylor Reuillard (Biddeford, Maine) led off with a triple to right-center and it seemed he would be stranded there, as sophomore reliever Tom Moore (East Haven, Conn.) entered the game and quickly induced a pair of harmless infield outs. With two down, sophomore Scott Betts (Peabody, Mass.) came up with the big hit, sending Reuillard home with a single up the middle for the eventual game-winning run.

For the Monks, McCoomb was 2-3 with a double and an RBI and Sanborn went 2-2 with a double and a triple. Meeken faced just three batters over the minimum and struck out four in the dominant outing.

Fowler took the loss after allowing three runs off seven hits and three walks and four hit batsmen with five K’s in six innings. Moore surrendered a pair of hits during one inning of relief.

GAME TWO - http://gomonks.com/sports/bsb/2014-15/files/am2.htm
Saint Joseph’s never trailed in the nightcap, as the Royal Blue plated three runs in the fourth, one in the fifth and a pair in the seventh en route to the 6-2 triumph.
In the fourth, Reuillard led off with a triple and scored when the following batter, senior Joe Coyne (Duxbury, Mass.), singled through the left side. Coyne later scored on a McCoomb sac fly to center field and Betts plated sophomore first baseman Brett Barbati (Melrose, Mass.), who was credited with a sac bunt and reached on an error, with a single down the left field line, making it a 3-0 game.

The Falcons countered with a pair of runs off three hits in the bottom of the fourth, when senior Arber Mehmedi (Naugatuck, Conn.) registered an RBI double and junior Mike Saia (Bridgeport, Conn.) rapped an RBI single to cut the hosts’ deficit to 3-2 through four frames.

Saint Joseph’s answered with a run in the fifth, when Sanborn walked and later scored on a Reuillard double to left-center, and two in the seventh, when Barbati plated a pair with a bases-loaded single, accounting for the 6-2 final.

For the Monks, Reuillard was 2-3 with a run, a double, a triple and an RBI and Coyne went 2-3 with a run, a two-bagger and an RBI. Sophomore starting pitcher Nick Malatesta (Wrentham, Mass.) picked up his second win of the season after allowing a pair of runs off four hits and four walks with five K’s in six innings and freshman Josh Partridge (Deerfield, N.H.) gave up a pair of hits in an otherwise clean inning of relief.

For the Falcons, Saia was 2-3 with an RBI and senior Anthony Pellegrino (Branford, Conn.) went 2-4 in the losing effort. Junior Jordan Kubilus (Cheshire, Conn.) takes the loss after giving up four runs (three earned) off five hits and a walk with a pair of strikeouts in 4.1 innings.

With the sweep, Saint Joseph’s improves to 18-1 in the history of the series with Albertus Magnus College, a team the Monks have now defeated in 16 consecutive meetings dating back to the 2008 season.

Saint Joseph’s returns to the diamond with a single-nine inning game at Bates College on Monday at 4:00 PM. Albertus Magnus plays a pair at Western Connecticut State on Thursday with first pitch slated for 4:00 PM.

4/11/15 – Saint Joseph’s Posts Pair of GNAC Wins over Anna Maria, 6-3 & 14-5

STANDISH, Maine – Saint Joseph’s College (15-10, 8-0 GNAC) posted a pair of wins over GNAC-rival Anna Maria College (6-12, 1-5 GNAC) at Larry Mahaney Diamond on Saturday afternoon. The Monks erased a 3-0 deficit in a 6-3 opening victory and trounced the AMCATS, 14-5, in the nightcap.
Today's doubleheader was originally scheduled to take place at Anna Maria’s home field, but the AMCATS’ diamond remains unplayable, so the coaches agreed upon a change in venue. As a result, the Monks played as the away team at Mahaney Diamond for the fourth time this spring.

GAME ONE - http://gomonks.com/sports/bsb/2014-15/files/anma1.htm
The AMCATS scored all three of their runs in the third inning, but the advantage was short-lived, as the Monks plated a pair in the fourth and another in the sixth to knot the game at three-apiece and pushed three runs across in the top of the seventh to claim the victory.
Anna Maria registered three hits and took advantage of an SJC error in staking a 3-0 lead in the third. With one out, senior David Julian (Sterling, Mass.) worked a five-pitch walk while freshman Nate Frederick (Worcester, Mass.) singled and senior Corey Andrade (Mashpee, Mass.) reached on an error to load the bases. Monks senior starter Alex Valenti (Lawrence, Mass.) fanned sophomore Corey McNair (Shrewsbury, Mass.) and had an 0-2 count on the following batter, sophomore Jonathan Roy (Worcester, Mass.), but the second-year third baseman slipped a single through the left side, scoring Julian and Frederick, and Andrade scored the AMCATS’ third run on a single by freshman right fielder Jourdon Wydra (Bristol, Conn.).
Saint Joseph’s closed the gap with two runs on a two-out single off the bat of sophomore second baseman Taylor Black (Cardiff by the Sea, Calif.) in the top of the fourth. Sophomore designated hitter Dan Donovan (Lynn, Mass.) opened with a seven-pitch walk and moved to third when sophomore center fielder Dennis Meehan (Gardiner, Maine) doubled down the left field line. After sophomore shortstop Max McCoomb (South Berwick, Maine) flew out to shallow right, Black stepped to the plate and drove a base hit through the right side, scoring both Donovan and Meehan to cut the Monks’ deficit to 3-2.
St. Joe’s tied the game with the help of unselfish at bats in the sixth, when McCoomb opened with an infield single, moved to second on a Black sac bunt, and scampered to third on a Taylor Reuillard (Biddeford, Maine) groundout to second base. Facing a lefty in sophomore Zach Parker (Manchester, N.H.), who entered the game to face Reuillard, senior third baseman Lincoln Sanborn (Standish, Maine) – a switch hitter – turned around to the right side and sent McCoomb home with a double off the base of the wall in left.
The Monks proceeded to tack on three runs off three hits and a pair of Anna Maria miscues in the top of the seventh to account for the 6-3 final. Sophomore first baseman Brett Barbati (Melrose, Mass.) singled and later scored on an infield error for the eventual winning run while McCoomb and Black both produced RBI base hits in the Monks’ final turn.
For the Monks, Reuillard was 3-5 with a double, Black went 2-4 with three RBI, Meehan was 2-4 with two runs, a double and a stolen base, and Sanborn added a pair of this with a double and an RBI in four at bats. Valenti did not factor into the decision after allowing three runs (all unearned) off seven hits and a pair of walks with seven K’s over five innings. Junior Corey McNamara (West Newbury, Mass.) picked up the win and improves to 2-1 on the season after tossing two perfect innings with four strikeouts.
For the AMCATS, Andrade went 2-4 with a run and sophomore hurler Brenden Matthews (Worcester, Mass.) took the loss after allowing two runs (both unearned) off two hits in 0.2 innings of relief. Junior starter Matthew Leahey (Rutland, Mass.) gave up three runs off eight hits and four walks with five strikeouts and Parker allowed an unearned run off two hits in one inning of relief.

GAME TWO - http://gomonks.com/sports/bsb/2014-15/files/anma2.htm
Saint Joseph’s put the nightcap contest to bed early, scoring two in the first and 12 in the second in a convincing 14-5 triumph.
In the first inning, Reuillard singled and scored on a wild pitch and Coyne reached on a fielder’s choice and crossed home plate on a Barbati base hit to lift the Royal Blue to a 2-0 cushion.
The Monks batted around twice and scored 12 runs off 10 hits and an Anna Maria error in the top of the second. Sanborn went 2-2 with a double and four RBI, Coyne was 2-2 with a double and three RBI and Reuillard plated a pair with two run-scoring singles in what was perhaps the team’s most impressive offensive outburst thus far this season.
For the Monks, eight different players recorded at least one hit in the victory, an effort led by Reuillard, who went 4-4 with three runs and two RBI. Sanborn, Coyne, Barbati and Meehan registered two hits apiece in the lopsided victory.
On the mound, Sanborn won his third-consecutive start after giving up a pair of unearned runs off five hits with six K’s over five innings. Freshman righthander Marc Poirier (Lunenburg, Mass.) fanned a pair in a 1-2-3 inning of relief and first-year Philip LeVangie (Hanover, Mass.) allowed three runs (one earned) off four hits in the bottom of the seventh.
For the AMCATS, sophomore Joseph Fahey (Auburn, Mass.) went 2-2 with a double and three RBI, Nate Frederick was 2-4 with a two-base hit and a pair of RBI, and McNair posted a 2-2 performance and scored a run in the losing bid.
Anna Maria starting pitcher Camden Frederick (Worcester, Mass.) took the loss after giving up 12 runs (eight earned) off eight hits and three walks in 1.1 innings while Liam Pickett (Oxford, Mass.) and Matthew Kozlowski (Seymour, Conn.) combined to allow two unearned runs off seven hits while fanning four in 5.2 innings of mop-up duty.
With the sweep, Saint Joseph’s improves to 8-2 all-time versus Anna Maria College. The Monks’ 14 runs scored in the closing game counts as the most plated by either team in the 10-game history of the matchup.
Both teams resume conference play tomorrow, when the Monks host Norwich University in a twinbill beginning at 1:00 PM and Anna Maria travels to Johnson & Wales University for a GNAC doubleheader starting at 12:00 PM.

4/12/15 – Monks Post Pair of GNAC Wins over Cadets, 3-0 & 11-4

STANDISH, Maine – Saint Joseph’s College (17-10, 10-0 GNAC) remained perfect in Great Northeast Athletic Conference (GNAC) play with a pair of victories over Norwich University (6-11, 1-7 GNAC) at Larry Mahaney Diamond on Sunday afternoon. The Monks opened with a 3-0 triumph and capped the day with an 11-4 victory.

GAME ONE - http://www.gomonks.com/sports/bsb/2014- ... s/nor1.htm
The opener was an old-fashioned pitchers’ duel, as Monks senior southpaw Dan Meeken (Marshfield, Mass.) and Cadets junior Billy Whaley (Northfield, Vt.) locked heads for six strong innings.

Saint Joseph’s scored single runs in the second, fourth and sixth frames in the 3-0 triumph¬. In the second, sophomore shortstop Max McCoomb (South Berwick, Maine) doubled home sophomore Brett Barbati (Melrose, Mass.) with a double, sophomore center fielder Dennis Meehan (Gardiner, Maine) plated second-year designated hitter Dan Donovan (Lynn, Mass.) with a two-bagger off the left wall in the fourth, and McCoomb doubled and scored on a Taylor Reuillard (Biddeford, Maine) triple to deep center in the sixth.

Meeken, who tossed a complete-game one-hitter in his last outing – a victory over Albertus Magnus College last Sunday, was perfect through four innings in today’s contest and did not allow a baserunner until sophomore third baseman Matt Sirois (Southington, Conn.) led off the fifth with a single up the middle.

Junior reliever Corey McNamara (West Newbury, Mass.) was called on to close out the contest in the seventh and retired the first batter with a comebacker, but ran into a jam without allowing a hit, as the Cadets managed to load the bases on a pair of infield miscues and a hit batsman. After plunking sophomore Kyle Dombrowski (Griswold, Conn.) to load the bases, McNamara fanned freshman Spencer Duhamel (Manchester, Conn.) with a backwards K to pick up his fourth save of the year.

Meeken finished the day with eight strikeouts while tossing six innings of two-hit ball and his battery mate, senior catcher Joe Coyne (Duxbury, Mass.), went 2-4 with a double and a triple and McCoomb added a pair of doubles with a run and an RBI in three at bats in the victory.

Whaley fell to 2-2 on the season after yielding three runs off nine hits and three walks while fanning five batters in six innings.

GAME TWO - http://www.gomonks.com/sports/bsb/2014- ... s/nor2.htm
The Monks scored at least one run in five of six turns at the bat en route to posting an 11-4 win in the nightcap.

In the bottom of the first, sophomore second baseman Taylor Black (Cardiff by the Sea, Calif.) led off with a single, moved to second on a Reuillard sac bunt, and scored when senior third baseman Lincoln Sanborn (Standish, Maine) tripled off the right field wall.
After stranding a runner in the second, the Monks went back to work in the third by plating three off three hits and a Norwich error to secure a 4-0 advantage. Black opened the inning by reaching on an error and later scored on a Sanborn single and Reuillard, who reached with a base hit to right, raced home on a double play ball off the bat of Barbati to make it a 3-0 game. Donovan capped the inning scoring by plating Sanborn with a double to center.

In the fourth, McCoomb reached with a single up the middle and scored on a fielder’s choice off the bat of Reuillard. The Cadets countered with their first run of the day when Drew Caldwell (Hanover, Mass.) doubled home senior Brandon Place (Concord, N.H.) in the top of the fifth, but the Monks scored a pair off a Scott Betts (Peabody, Mass.) double that was misplayed in center field, making it a 7-1 contest through five frames.

The Monks completed their side of the scoring ledger with four runs off three hits and a Cadets error in the sixth. Freshman catcher Jacob White (Salem, N.H.) was credited with an RBI with a bases-loaded walk, sophomore first baseman Jameson Collins (Sandown, N.H.) produced an RBI single and freshman outfielder David Condon (Berlin, Conn.) plated a pair with a double to right center to lift the hosts to an 11-1 cushion.

The Cadets mounted a small rally with three runs in the top of the seventh, as Caldwell belted a two-run homer over the left field wall and Dombrowski knocked in sophomore center fielder LaShawn Thomas (San Antonio, Texas) with a single to left to account for the 11-4 final.

Black led the Monks offensively by going 3-4 with three runs and Sanborn was 2-2 with a pair of runs, two RBI and a triple in the lopsided triumph. Sophomore starter Nick Malatesta (Wrentham, Mass.) improved to 3-1 on the season after allowing a run off four hits with seven strikeouts over six innings while freshman Chris Gerossie (Chester, N.H.) gave up three runs off three hits with one punch out in an inning of mop-up work.
For the Cadets, Caldwell was 2-3 with a run, a double, a homer and three RBI and junior starting pitcher Brian Whaley (Northfield, Vt.) took the loss after allowing seven runs (four earned) off eight hits and three hit batsmen while fanning four over four innings. Sophomore Kyle Farquharson (South Ryegate, Vt.) surrendered four runs off four hits and thee walks with five K’s in two frames of relief.

With the sweep, Saint Joseph’s improves to 16-0 in the history of the series with Norwich University. The Monks have now won 11 consecutive games, a stretch that began with a pair of wins over Lasell College last Thursday.

Saint Joseph’s returns to action Monday night with a non-conference contest versus Bowdoin College. First pitch is slated for 6:45 PM and the Monks will play as the away team versus the Polar Bears.

Norwich hosts Anna Maria College in a GNAC twinbill on Wednesday afternoon. First pitch for the opener is scheduled for 2:00 PM.

4/14/15 – Monks Clip Gulls, Extend Win Streak to 13 Games

BEVERLY, Mass. – Saint Joseph’s College (19-10, 10-0 GNAC) edged Endicott College (16-10, 10-2 CCC), 2-1, in a non-conference baseball contest on Tuesday afternoon. Sophomore starting pitcher Matt Wojciak (Merrimack, N.H.) allowed one unearned run off five hits and three walks with four strikeouts and improves to 2-0 on the season with the winning decision.

Today’s win is the Monks’ 13th consecutive victory, as the team has not lost since suffering an 8-7 setback in 11 innings at Husson University on March 31st. The current streak is tied for the second longest in program history, as the Monks rattled off 13 straight victories during the 2006 campaign. The longest winning streak in the team’s 44-year history took place in 1986, when the Royal Blue won 22 consecutive contests.
Saint Joseph’s fell into a 1-0 hole with two out in the bottom of the first, when senior second baseman Harry Orringer (Dartmouth, Mass.) singled and scored when a Mike Kochiss (Fairfield, Conn.) base hit was misplayed in the outfield.

The Monks tied the game in the top of the fourth when senior third baseman Lincoln Sanborn (Standish, Maine) singled and later scored on a Brett Barbati (Melrose, Mass.) base hit and took the lead on the seventh, when sophomores Dan Donovan (Lynn, Mass.) and Scott Betts (Peabody, Mass.) opened the frame with back-to-back doubles.

The Gulls nearly tied the game on one swing with two outs in the bottom of the eighth. After freshman Marc Poirier (Lunenberg, Mass.) retired the first two batters, Head Coach Will Sanborn ’86 went to his bullpen and brought in sophomore southpaw Ben Coleman (Williamstown, Mass.) to face left-handed Matthew Paola (Middlebury, Conn.), who launched a long drive to center that, off the bat, looked to be either over the fence or for extra bases. Sophomore center fielder Dennis Meehan (Gardiner, Maine) came up with the play of the day, perhaps the season thus far, with an over the shoulder diving catch on the warning track to preserve the Monks’ one-run advantage.

The Monks squandered a chance to tack on an insurance run with one out in the top of the ninth when Meehan was hit by a pitch and sophomore shortstop Max McCoomb followed with a single up the middle, but junior reliever Nick Quattro (Canton, Conn.) induced an inning-ending double play ball off the bat of sophomore Taylor Black (Cardiff by the Sea, Calif.) to snuff out the threat.

Endicott had the tying run on base in the ninth, when junior shortstop Cody Hall (Rutland, Mass.) reached with a two-out single, but freshman lefty Joshua Partridge (Deerfield, N.H.) managed to close out the game with a groundout off the bat of sophomore centerfielder Cam Farnham (Andover, Mass.), picking up his second save in as many games in the process.

For the Monks, Betts was 2-4 with a double and an RBI and Donovan went 2-4 with a run and a two-bagger. Poirier fanned a pair during 1.1 innings of perfect relief while Coleman and Travis Godbout (Portland, Maine) retired a batter apiece and Partridge allowed a hit with a punch-out over 1.1 frames.

For the Gulls, Orringer was 2-4 with a run and Kochiss went 2-3 with a double. Junior starting pitcher JJ Branch (Milford, Mass.) took the loss after yielding two runs (one earned) off nine hits with four K’s in six innings. Junior Davarn Nova (Buzzards Bay, Mass.), sophomore Eric Nagle (Manchester, Conn.) and Quattro combined to allow one hit with a strikeout over three frames of relief.

With the victory, Saint Joseph’s improves to 12-5 in the history of the series with Endicott College, a team the Monks defeated by a 3-2 margin last spring.
Saint Joseph’s returns to play Thursday with a conference doubleheader at Johnson & Wales University. First pitch for the opener is slated for 3:00 PM.

4/16/15 – Monks Split with Wildcats, Earn Top Seed for GNAC Tourney

PROVIDENCE, R.I. – Saint Joseph’s College (20-11, 11-1 GNAC) split a Great Northeast Athletic Conference (GNAC) baseball doubleheader with Johnson & Wales University (13-11, 6-4 GNAC) on Thursday afternoon. The Monks suffered a 9-2 loss in the opener and rebounded with a 6-0 victory to salvage the split. Senior catcher Joe Coyne (Duxbury, Mass.) registered three hits in the two-game set and became the sixth member of the Monks’ 200-Hit Club with a single in the top of the fifth of the second game.

With the loss in the opener, the Monks’ 13-game winning streak came to a close, but Saint Joseph’s clinched the top seed in the upcoming GNAC Tournament with the nightcap triumph, which begins with a single-elimination play-in round next Tuesday. With one conference loss and two GNAC games remaining, the other contending teams cannot overtake Saint Joseph’s, as Johnson & Wales, Lasell and Suffolk already have four losses in league play.

As one of the top two seeds, the Monks earn a first-round bye and begin tourney play next Thursday with a home game versus the winner of the #4/#5 opening round contest. The remainder of the conference tournament will be played, and hosted by Suffolk University, at Holman Stadium next Saturday and Sunday in Nashua, New Hampshire.

GAME ONE - http://www.gomonks.com/sports/bsb/2014- ... 6_33pv.xml

The Monks scored a run off four hits and stranded three runners in the top of the first, as junior left fielder Taylor Reuillard (Biddeford, Maine) singled and later scored on a Brett Barbati (Melrose, Mass.) base hit to provide the visitors with a 1-0 edge going into the bottom of the first. Coyne and sophomore right fielder Scott Betts (Peabody, Mass.) also singled in the opening frame.

The Wildcats knotted the game at 1-1 in the bottom of the second, when junior Jordan Pilarski (Garnet Valley, Pa.) walked and eventually scored on a two-out single off the bat of sophomore Lou Umberto (Cranston, R.I.).

St. Joe’s recaptured the lead with a run off one hit and a JWU miscue in the fifth, as sophomore second baseman Taylor Black (Cardiff by the Sea, Calif.) reached on an error and later scored when Barbati singled to right field, lifting the Royal Blue to a 2-1 edge.
Senior starter Alex Valenti (Lawrence, Mass.) tossed five strong innings and was removed in favor of junior reliever Corey McNamara (West Newbury, Mass.), who entered the game having allowed just one walk over 15 innings of work this spring. Dealing with an inconsistent strike zone, the Monks’ closer quickly found himself in a jam, walking a pair and allowing a bloop single to load the bases with nobody out. Sophomore Ryan Cabral (Hope, R.I.) lifted the Wildcats to a 3-2 lead with a two-run single, junior Ty Karalis (Seekonk, Mass.) followed with a run-scoring base hit and, after Umberto struck out, freshman pinch hitter Rob Ballinger (South Kingstown, R.I.) stepped to the plate and made it a 5-2 game with a double to left-center. McNamara fanned senior Kory Ferullo (Rochester, N.H.) for the second out of the inning and was replaced on the hill by freshman Joshua Partridge (Deerfield, N.H.), who gave up a three-run homer to junior Andrew Hunton (Monroe, N.Y.), a blast that extended the hosts’ lead to 8-2, and sophomore Ivan Reyes (Cranston, R.I.) later produced an RBI single to cap the game scoring.

The Monks attempted to dig out of the six-run hole and loaded the bases with three singles in the top of the seventh, but could not push a run across.

Saint Joseph’s managed to outhit Johnson & Wales by a 12-10 margin in the losing effort, a hit parade led by a 3-4 performance from Barbati. Betts and Reuillard added two hits apiece in the setback. Valenti was excellent, allowing a run off three hits with four walks and eight strikeouts in five innings. McNamara endured the most frustrating outing of his NCAA career, yielding six runs off four hits and a pair of walks with two K’s in 0.2 innings.
For the Wildcats, Cabral and Reyes notched two hits apiece and junior starter Jake Marchesseault (Wyoming, R.I.) picked up the win after giving up two runs off 12 hits and a walk with six punch-outs over seven frames.

GAME TWO - http://www.gomonks.com/sports/bsb/2014- ... 6_yd5q.xml

Saint Joseph’s showed plenty of poise by pulling out the nightcap triumph, and in convincing manner at that, as senior starter Dan Meeken (Marshfield, Mass.) completely shut down the JWU offense, scattering five hits with a pair of walks while fanning a career-high 10 batters in a complete-game shutout effort.

With Meeken dealing, the Monks produced all the offense he required with a run off two hits in the top of the second, when Barbati led off with a single and scored on a Dennis Meehan (Gardiner, Maine) base hit.

For good measure, St. Joe’s tacked on two runs in the third and three in the fifth to account for the 6-0 final. In the third, Reuillard sent Black home with a double and sprinted home when Coyne ripped a two-bagger to left. The Monks posted five hits in the fifth, when Reuillard doubled to left-center and scored on a Barbati base hit and sophomore Dan Donovan (Lynn, Mass.) knocked in a pair with a bases-loaded single to center.

For the Monks, Reuillard was 3-4 with two runs, three doubles and an RBI, Barbati went 3-3 with a run and an RBI, Coyne went 2-3 with a run, a two-bagger and an RBI and Meehan added two hits and an RBI in three at bats. Meeken did not allow a runner past second base in the victory and extended his scoreless inning streak to 19 innings with seven shutout frames this afternoon. The senior southpaw has not allowed a run since giving up a pair in the first inning against Albertus Magnus on April 4th and has given up just eight hits with 22 strikeouts over his last 20 innings.

Senior hurler Shawn Haugh (Tampa, Fla.) suffered the loss for the Wildcats after yielding six runs off 11 hits and a free pass with four K’s over 5.1 innings and freshman Taylor Pacific (Cranston, R.I.) tossed 1.2 innings of effective relief, allowing a pair of walks with two punch-outs.

Both teams return to the diamond facing conference opponents, as Saint Joseph's hosts Suffolk University in a twinbill slated to start at 12:00 PM on Saturday and JWU travels to Albertus Magnus tomorrow for a doubleheader starting at 4:00 PM.

4/18/15 – Monks Split GNAC Battle with Rams

STANDISH, Maine – Saint Joseph’s College and Suffolk University split a Great Northeast Athletic Conference (GNAC) baseball doubleheader at Larry Mahaney Diamond on Saturday afternoon. The Monks won the opener, 6-4, while the Rams salvaged the split with a 7-4 victory in the nightcap.

GAME ONE - http://gomonks.com/sports/bsb/2014-15/files/suf1.htm htthttp://gomonks.com/sports/bsb/2014-15/files/suf1.htm p://gomonks.com/sports/bsb/2014-15/files/suf1.htm

The Monks quickly fell into a 3-0 hole when the Rams plated three run off four hits and an SJC error in the top of the first. With runners on second and third and one out, senior first baseman JC Collette (Amesbury, Mass.) reached on an infield miscue, a play that allowed two runs to score, and later scored the visitors’ third run when junior Rob Marks (Revere, Mass.) singled to center.

Senior starting pitcher Lincoln Sanborn (Standish, Maine) settled in after the rocky first inning and managed to strike out the side in the second and third frames, an effort that allowed the Royal Blue to knot the game in the bottom of the third, when St. Joe’s totaled three runs off four hits and a Suffolk error. With one out and runners on first and second, senior catcher Joe Coyne (Duxbury, Mass.) came to the plate and roped an RBI double to left center. When the relay throw was misplayed, Sanborn came all the way around from first base to score, making it a 3-2 contest. With two down and Coyne on second, sophomore right fielder Scott Betts (Peabody, Mass.) singled through the right, plating his senior teammate and tying the game at 3-3.

Saint Joseph’s proceeded to take the lead with three runs off just one hit and a Suffolk error in the bottom of the fourth. Sophomore shortstop Max McCoomb (South Berwick, Maine) walked, advanced to second on a passed ball and reached third on an infield error before scoring the go-ahead run when junior left fielder Taylor Reuillard (Biddeford, Maine) reached on a fielder’s choice. Reuillard moved up 90 feet when Sanborn worked a walk and raced home on a Coyne base hit to center and Sanborn scored on a passed ball to notch the Monks’ sixth run.

The Rams responded with a run off a pair of hits in the top of the fifth, as freshman outfielder Brady Chant (Warwick, R.I.) led off with a single to right and scored two batters later when junior catcher Jon Lapolla (Providence, R.I.) reached on a fielder’s choice.

For the Monks, Coyne was 4-4 with a run, a double and a pair of RBI, Sanborn went 2-3 with two runs, Reuillard added two hits, two runs and an RBI in four trips to the plate, and Betts was 2-3 with an RBI in the come-from-behind triumph. Sanborn improved to 4-2 on the season after yielding four runs (one earned) off seven hits and a walk with eight K’s in six innings. Junior closer Corey McNamara (West Newbury, Mass.) picked up his fifth save of the season after tossing eight pitches in a 1-2-3 seventh inning.

Chant, who went 3-4 with a pair of runs scored, was the Rams’ lone repeat-hitter in the opener while senior southpaw Josh Desai (Shrewsbury, Mass.) fell to 4-3 on the year after giving up six runs (three earned) on 10 hits and four walks with a strikeout over six frames.

GAME TWO - http://gomonks.com/sports/bsb/2014-15/files/suf2.htm

The Monks fell victim to shaky defense in the closing contest, as three errors led to a trio of unearned runs, a margin that proved to be the difference in a 7-4 setback.
St. Joe’s plated a pair off three hits to claim an early advantage in the bottom of the second. Coyne led off with a sharp single up the middle and, after sophomore first baseman Brett Barbati (Melrose, Mass.) successfully executed a sac bunt, scored on a double off the bat of sophomore left fielder Dan Donovan (Lynn, Mass.), who sprinted home when the following batter, Betts, delivered a single up the middle, lifting the hosts to a 2-0 advantage through two frames.

The Rams chipped away at the deficit with a run off two hits in the top of the third, as Lapolla walked and scored on a Drew Carter (Newburyport, Mass.) base hit.
The wheels fell off for the Monks in the top of the fourth, when the Rams plated four runs off five hits and an infield error while batting around. Senior shortstop Adam Johnson (Georgetown, Mass.) led off the inning with a single through the left side and eventually scored on a Chant sac fly to left, tying the game at 2-2. With runners on second and third, Collette roped a 3-2 offering from sophomore starter Nick Malatesta (Wrentham, Mass.) to center for a two-run single and Marks knocked in a run with a single to left to cap the scoring with Suffolk on top by a 5-2 margin.

In the sixth, Johnson plated Carter – who reached with a walk – with a double to left-center, to extend the Rams’ cushion to 6-2. Saint Joseph’s attempted to rally in the sixth but failed to push a run across after loading the bases with two out.
Suffolk added another insurance run in the seventh, when freshman reliever Travis Godbout (Portland, Maine) plunked Marks with the bases loaded.

Showing some late life, the Monks managed to score twice off three hits in the bottom of the seventh. McCoomb opened the inning and reached on an infield error and scored on a Reuillard single down the left field line and Reuillard touched home plate on a Barbati single to make it a 7-4 contest. With rally bid would fall short however, as Suffolk junior reliever Cal Carroll (Methuen, Mass.) induced a harmless fly ball to right to close out the game.

For the Monks, Barbati went 3-3 with an RBI, Donovan was 2-3 with a run, a double and an RBI, and Coyne contributed two hits with a run and a double in four at bats. Malatesta falls to 3-2 on the year after allowing five runs (two earned) off seven hits and a walk with a strikeout over 3.2 innings while bullpen pitchers Steven Albert (Worcester, Mass.), Thomas Fortier (Falmouth, Maine), Marc Poirier (Lunenberg, Mass.), Josh Partridge (Deerfield, N.H.), Patrick Martin (Wilton, N.H.) and Godbout combined to give up two runs off four hits and six walks with four K’s over 3.1 frames of work.

For the Rams, Lapolla was 2-3 with three runs scored and a pair of stolen bases, Julien Plana (Miami, Fla.) went 2-4 with a run, and Johnson was 2-5 with a run, a double and an RBI. Freshman starter Jake Flax (Wyckoff, N.J.) earned the victory on the mound after allowing four runs (two earned) off nine hits and a walk while fanning one in 6.2 innings. Carroll claimed his second save of the season after giving up one hit in 0.1 innings of work.

With the split, Saint Joseph’s is now 25-15 in the history of the series with Suffolk University, a team the Monks have faced in the GNAC Championship in each of the last seven seasons. St. Joe’s has emerged as the victor in six of the seven title contests.
Saint Joseph’s, which clinched the top seed in the GNAC Tournament with a split at Johnson & Wales on Thursday, returns to action tomorrow with a home game versus University of Southern Maine. First pitch is slated for 1:00 PM. With the GNAC Tournament bracket still in flux, Suffolk awaits the results of tomorrow’s Albertus Magnus/Johnson & Wales doubleheader to learn whether they must compete in the play-in round on Tuesday or earn a bye and begin the postseason on Thursday.

4/19/15 – Monks Outslug Huskies, 10-7

STANDISH, Maine – Saint Joseph’s College (22-12, 12-2 GNAC) defeated #20 University of Southern Maine (18-9, 6-3 LEC), 10-7, in a non-conference baseball game at Larry Mahaney Diamond on Sunday afternoon. Sophomore right fielder Scott Betts (Peabody, Mass.) was 3-4 with a run, a home run and four RBI in what was the Monks’ 16th victory in the team’s last 18 games.

Saint Joseph’s held a 3-1 lead after one inning, but Southern Maine rallied with single runs in the second, third and fourth frames to claim a 4-3 edge. Sophomore designated hitter Dan Donovan (Lynn, Mass.) led off the bottom of the fourth with a walk and trotted home when Betts drilled a two run shot, a line drive over the scoreboard in left, lifting the hosts to a 5-4 advantage.

The Monks proceeded to tack on three runs in the bottom of the fifth junior left fielder Taylor Reuillard (Biddeford, Maine) and senior catcher Joe Coyne (Duxbury, Mass.) rapped consecutive singles and scored on a Donovan double, which was misplayed in left. Donovan later tapped home plate on a Betts single through the right side, making it an 8-4 game going into the top of the sixth.

St. Joe’s added a pair of insurance runs off three hits and a USM error in the seventh, when Reuillard led off with a double to deep right-center and scored on a Brett Barbati (Melrose, Mass.) single that was bobbled in center field. Betts added his fourth RBI of the game when he plated Barbati with a base hit to left.

After being held off the board for three-consecutive frames, the Huskies tightened the collar a bit with a run off a hit and an SJC miscue in the top of the eighth. With one down, sophomore Matt Bender (Walpole, Mass.) walked, raced to third on an errant pick-off throw at first base and scored on a Brendon Joyce (Standish, Maine) single through the left side, cutting the visitors’ deficit down to 10-5.

Always a threat to score runs in bunches, Southern Maine managed to make things a bit more interesting in the ninth, when the Huskies scored twice off three hits. Junior shortstop Sam Dexter (Oakland, Maine) led off the inning with a solo jack over the left field wall and sophomore first baseman Paul McDonough (Wells, Maine) followed with a two-base hit to left. Sophomore Damon Wallace (Gorham, Maine) sent McDonough home with a sharp single to center and stood at first base with nobody out. Junior closer Corey McNamara (West Newbury, Mass.) was able to minimize the damage, forcing freshman pinch hitter Anthony Capuano (Bangor, Maine) to fly out to left before picking Wallace off first and fanning Bender to bring an end to the contest.

For the Monks, Reuillard went 3-5 with three runs, a double and an RBI and Coyne was 2-4 with a pair of runs and a stolen base while freshman pitcher Steven Albert (Worcester, Mass.) picked up the win and improves to 3-0 on the year after tossing 2.2 innings of no-hit relief with a walk and a punch-out to his credit. Sophomore starter Matt Wojciak (Merrimack, N.H.) allowed four runs (two earned) off five hits and three walks with three K’s over four frames and did not factor into the decision. Freshmen hurlers Philip LeVangie (Hanover, Mass.), Chris Gerossie (Chester, N.H.) and Josh Partridge (Deerfield, N.H.) also made relief appearances versus the Huskies.

Dexter led the USM offensive effort by going 2-4 with three runs, a homer and an RBI while McDonough was 2-4 with a run and Bender went 2-4 with three runs scored in the loss. Sophomore starter Zack Bean (Westbrook, Maine) took the loss and falls to 1-2 on the year after yielding five runs (four earned) off five hits and a walk with three strikeouts in three innings. Senior reliever Andrew Richards (South Portland, Maine) gave up three runs off four hits with a pair of punch-outs and freshman Chase Orava (Sagamore Beach, Mass.) allowed two runs (one earned) off a pair of hits with a strikeout in 1.1 innings of relief. Juniors Dan Kinnon (Londonderry, N.H.) and Ryan Browner (Georgetown, Mass.) combined to toss 1.2 innings of two-hit scoreless relief with the former fanning a pair.

With the victory, Saint Joseph’s improves to 13-50 all-time versus University of Southern Maine and has now defeated the Huskies in four-consecutive meetings at Mahaney Diamond, a stretch that began in 2008. Starting in 1984 and finally ending in 1997, USM posted a 29-game winning streak against SJC, but the Monks have emerged victorious in five of the last seven meetings versus the Huskies, a program that advanced to the NCAA DIII World Series after capturing the NCAA DIII New England Championship in each of the last two seasons.

Saint Joseph’s, the top seed in the 2015 GNAC Tournament, is off until Thursday when the Monks begin postseason play with a home quarterfinal contest versus the winner of the #5 Rivier University/#4 Lasell College play-in game, start time TBD. Southern Maine resumes play on Tuesday with a Little East Conference contest at University of Massachusetts-Boston (3:00 PM).
