HAMBURG, NY – Brockport State pitcher Jared Perham threw seven strikeouts over six innings to pickup the win and help the Golden Eagles to a 14-3 win over Hilbert College Monday afternoon. Poor weather dampened the originally scheduled nine inning contest which was cut short after the eighth inning. The loss drops the Hawks to 5-19 on the year while the Golden Eagles improve to 20-10.

Brockport scored two runs in the top of the third inning, but the Hilbert answered with three in the third to take a brief lead. The visitors would even the score at 3-3 after the third inning before exploding for five runs in the sixth and six more in the seventh to put the game out of reach.

Mark Morlock went five-for-five from the plate with three doubles and three runs scored to lead the winners. Hilbert’s James Corsaro’s (Hamburg, NY/Frontier) had two hits, including a two-run double that gave the Hawks their early lead. Andrew Mancini (Mt. Morris, NY/Mt. Morris) also recorded two hits, but it wasn’t enough. The Hawks’ Matt Schoepflin (Chaffee, NY/Holland) was charged with the loss after giving up seven hits and five runs in five and a-third innings.

Hilbert will return to conference play with a doubleheader on Wednesday at Penn State Behrend. First pitch is scheduled for 1:00 pm in Erie, PA.
