Baseball Sinks Saint Joseph's (Me.) in Molina's Second Complete-Game Victory

STANDISH, Maine — First-year Albert Molina (Terryville, Conn.) notched his second complete-game victory and classmate Tyler Czeremcha (New Britain, Conn.) drove in four Falcons in the Albertus Magnus College baseball team's 8-1 win over Great Northeast Athletic Conference opponent Saint Joseph's College (Me.) on Saturday.

Albertus collected five two-baggers as Troy Piascik (East Haven, Conn.) connected for a trio and Shawn Smith (Shelton, Conn.) kissed his first home run of the season. Molina retired three straight Monks in the first, fourth, seventh and eighth innings with a career-high six strikeouts.
