Baseball - Fri, Mar. 8, 2013
 

Showing the wear and tear of 7 games in 6 days, IIT Baseball dropped both games of a doubleheader against St. Mary's University, losing 12-4 and 15-4.  The unusually cool, rainy and windy weather for Tucson added to the team's troubles, working against the Hawks in potential scoring situations. 

Mike Malfeo continued to have a bright season start, going 2-for-4 in game one, with 2 RBIs, and going 2-for-4 with 2 singles and 1 RBI in game two.  Jon Celestino also stayed hot at the plate during both games.  Celestino, the Hawks first baseman, went 1-for-3 in game one with a double and an RBI.  Just missing the cycle by a homerun in game two, Celestino went 3-for-4, with a single, double, triple and 2 RBIs.

On the mound in game one, freshman Kyle Bledsoe fell short of his performance on the first day of the trip. Bledsoe gave up 11 runs, all earned, over 5+ innings while striking out 2, giving up 15 hits, 3 walks and 1 hit batsman.  John Rotella entered as relief for the fourth time on the trip, pitching 2 innings.  Rotella gave up 1 run earned on 3 hits, 2 strikeouts and 1 hit batsman.  In game two, sophomore Matthew Bishop started, giving up 9 runs, 6 earned, on 7 hits, 2 walks and 1 hit batsman, while striking out 6 over 3 innings.  As relief, Andrew Gustafson threw 3 innings, striking out 4 and giving up 6 runs, 5 earned.

Closing the spring trip, the Hawks look forward to their return to Chicago and the start of conference play.  The IIT Baseball regular season opens on Friday, March 15 at 4pm on the road versus Robert Morris University.
