St. Joseph nine shut out by Warde
St. Joseph had its chances at the plate, but Fairfield Warde's left handed Hunter Hewitt got some tough outs and the host Mustangs defeated the Cadets, 5-0, in FCIAC baseball action on Monday.
Hewitt pitched out of a jam in the first inning and Warde got a couple of two-out singles from Alex Goven to take a 3-0 lead after three.
Ismael Herrera singled to start the fourth, but was out stealing.
Down 4-0 in the fourth, Jake Amoroso opened the frame with a walk, but Hewitt notched three strikeouts to negate Dave Capela’s single and leave two runners stranded.
Warde turned a 6-4-3 double play in the Cadet fifth, after Matt Laveneziana was hit by a pitch and Mark Hirschbeck singled.
