AMHERST, NY - In the opening game of Tuesday’s AMCC doubleheader, Hilbert College pitcher Nicholas Sherman (Lancaster, NY/Lancaster) tossed a one-hit complete game shutout and struck out eight to lead Hilbert to a 2-0 win. Sherman improves his record to 3-0 on the season. Matt Militello (Depew, NY/Lancaster) and Ryan LaCorte (Cheektowaga, NY/John F. Kennedy) scored the Hawks two unearned runs.

D’Youville rebounded in the nightcap behind their ace Alex Pragle (Wayland, NY/Wayland-Cohocton) with a 2-1 victory. Pragle pitched a complete five-hitter game and combined with the Spartan’s defense, stranded eight Hilbert runners on base.  The lone Hilbert run occurred in the fifth inning when Ed Heffron (Williamsville, NY/Cardinal O’Hara) crossed home off a Matt Begeal (Northville, NY/Wells) RBI. Ryan LaCorte (Cheektowaga, NY/JFK) tossed a three-hitter for Hilbert (4-8, 1-1 AMCC).
The Hawks are off until Monday, April 5th when they travel to Fredonia State for a 1 pm double-header start.
