Brockport, N.Y. – SUNY Brockport’s Matt Johnson hit a grand slam in the bottom of the fourth inning to give the host Golden Eagles a lead they would not relinquish en route to a 13-4 win over visiting Hilbert College yesterday. The win improves the Golden Eagles to 22-11 while Hilbert falls to 4-16 on the season.


The visiting Hawks scored two runs in the top of the first and two more in the top of the third to take an early 4-3 lead before giving up a six-run fourth inning to the winners.  Brockport added two runs in the sixth and two more in the eighth to close out the scoring.


Hilbert’s Sam Gioia (West Seneca West/West Seneca, NY) provided a bulk of the Hawks offense with a four-for-four performance from the plate, including a stolen base and a run scored. Cory Lindsley (Pioneer/Yorkshire, NY) chipped in with two hits and two RBIs while relief pitcher Glen Ufland (Bishop Timon/Buffalo, NY) suffered the loss on the mound.


Brockport’s Ben Kimball earned his fifth win of the season as three different Golden Eagle pitchers combined for eight strikeouts on the day.


Hilbert’s originally scheduled home doubleheader today against LaRoche College has been cancelled. The Hawks will play host to conference foe Medaille College on May 1 with game one of the twinbill scheduled for 1 p.m.
