2009 MAAC Pitcher Of The Year Sarah Minice (pictured) pitched both games of a doubleheader sweep of St. Peter's at Jersey City, NJ today.

When Fairfield means business, they put ace Sarah Minice in the circle and keep her there. The junior evened her record at 9-9 with her 2 victories today. The first game saw Fairfield with a 3-1 lead when they exploded for 9 runs on 6 hits in the 6th inning to end the game early. Jenna DiBernardo hit a 3 run pinch hit homer. Kristie Trifiolis pitched in with 3 RBIs. St. Peter's scored their lone run on a Vanessa Acosta home run.

In the second game, centerfielder Dani Griswold got the Stags started with a 1st inning RBI triple, and then came home on a Meghan Borst ground ball. St. Peter's did even the score at 2-2 in the bottom of the 1st inning on hits by Samantha Bennett and Danielle Cuglietto, but that was as close as the Peahens would get, although catcher Amanda Rice did hit a 2 run homer in the 3rd inning and finished the game with 3 RBIs. Fairfield finished the 5 inning game with 13 hits, Meghan Borst and Laura Carta had 3 RBIs each.

Fairfield begins MAAC play with a 2-0 record; 15-13 overall. St. Peter's falls to 0-4 in MAAC play; and 1-19 overall.
