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.
