IRVING, TX – Presentation College picked up their second straight win over the Hilbert College baseball team with a convincing 13-2 victory on Thursday. The Saints knocked-off the Hawks 8-0 on Wednesday and now improve to 2-3 on the season. With the loss the Hawks fall to 0-5 and return to Western, New York still searching for their first win of the 2007 season.

Hilbert’s Glen Ufland (Buffalo, NY/Bishop Timon) suffered the loss after going four innings while giving up five runs. The Saints would cross the plate eight more times while the Hawks avoided the shutout with a pair of runs in their final at bat.
