FORT PIERCE, FL – Delaware Valley College took a pair of games from the Hilbert College baseball team as the Hawks started the 2006 season in Fort Pierce, FL. The Aggies won game one 17-3 and later came back to take the second game of Sunday’s doubleheader by a score of 11-7.

Hilbert junior Glen Ufland (Buffalo, NY/Bishop Timon) went two for three with a double and Eric Seeger (Orchard Park, NY/Orchard Park) recorded two strikeouts while making his pitching debut in game one.

In game two, Hilbert’s Steve Morasco (Memphis, NY/Jordan-Elbridge) went two for four with an RBI and run scored. The freshman right-hander went three innings on the mound and recorded five strikeouts. Joe Ferrara (Hamburg, NY/Frontier), John Koniniec (Depew, NY/Depew) and Ufland each hit safely for the Hawks in a losing effort.

Hilbert (0-2) will look to regroup for today’s doubleheader against Mount Saint Vincent College with the first pitch scheduled for 8:45 AM.
