Red Foxes Sweep St. Peter's

Marist 5
St. Peter's 3

Marist 9
St. Peter's 1 (5)

Game One Box Score
Game Two Box Score

Nicole DiVirgilio (pictured) drove home 5 runs, and Caitlin Schell hit a pinch run walk off homer to lead Marist to a sweep of St. Peter's and their first MAAC wins of the season.

I guess Marist Head Coach Joe Ausanio had a hunch when he sent pitcher Caitlin Schell up to bat as a pinch hitter in the 5th inning of game two with the Red Foxes up by 7 runs. It was only Caitlin's 4th career at bat, but she smashed a pitch over the left field fence to give Marist a run rule victory and the sweep.

Nicole DiVirgilio had a fabulous game two, getting 3 hits, 2 of them doubles, and 5 RBIs. Game one was a closer affair, but Kate Malloy had 2 hits and 3 RBIs to lead the Red Foxes to a 5-3 victory. Emily Osterhaus struck out 6 to win her first game of the season.

Marist is now 2-6 in the MAAC; 6-27 overall. St. Peter's is 0-10; 2-28.
