Canisius sweeps St. Joe’s
Canisius completed a sweep of back-to-back games with rival St. Joe’s Tuesday, handing the Marauders a 5-0 defeat on their home field.
Monday, it was Dan Dallas who stopped St. Joe’s. Tuesday, Nate Mascellino was just as sharp, allowing just three hits and striking out seven. He retired the side in order in four of the seven innings.
“It was cold at St. Joe’s and we knew they would sure have their dander up after Monday and we knew we were up against it,” said Canisius Coach Brian Tenney “But Nate was in control the whole game.”
Dallas hit a long solo home run over the fence in left center in the first inning when the Crusaders took the 3-0 lead. Vinny Chiarenza had a solo homer to right in the fourth. Dallas and Chiarenza each had two RBIs while Will Lawrence contributed three hits.
Canisius (7-1 overall) leads the Monsignor Martin Association with a 4-0 lead record with sweeps over St. Francis and St. Joe’s.
