WINONA, Minn. — It’s Monday morning, and time to take one final look back at the highlights of the week that was—by the numbers.

1: The Saint Mary’s baseball team—which won Game 1 in 11 of its 16 doubleheaders last season—has won the first game in both of its DHs this season, beating Mount Union 6-3 on Feb. 29 and St. Scholastica 3-1 last Saturday.

1, 2: Steph Scatassa (Westchester, Ill.) picked up his first pitching win of the season in the Cardinal baseball team’s 3-1 Game 1 win vs. St. Scholastica last Saturday—allowing just one run on four hits in six innings—while Nathan Mathwig (Woodbury, Minn.) tossed a scoreless seventh for his team-leading second save.

3: The Cardinal men’s hockey team boasted three players on the All-MIAC First-Team when the league announced its post-season award winners last Monday. Martin Gruse (Trenton, Mich.) and Bob Kinne (St. Paul, Minn.) earned all-conference honors for the second straight season, while Jay Heinle (York, Pa.) earned All-MIAC honors for the first time.

3: The Cardinal baseball team scored three runs in both of its nonconference games against St. Scholastica last Saturday, beating the Saints 3-1 in the opener, before falling 8-3 in the second game.

3: Jake Barry (Tinsley Park, Ill.) drove in three of the Cardinal baseball team’s six runs against St. Scholastica last Saturday—delivering a two-run, sixth-inning single in the Cardinals’ 3-1 Game 1 win, then adding a solo home run in the second inning of the nightcap.

3.12.16: The Saint Mary’s baseball team kicked off the home portion of its schedule last Saturday, earning a nonconference split against St. Scholastica. The nonconference doubleheader was the earliest the Cardinals have played an outdoor game at Max Molock Field in more than 20 years.

8: Brett Giesen (Cato, Wis.) and Brenden Amiotte (Rapid City, S.D.) teamed for their team-leading eighth dual-match doubles win for the Saint Mary’s men’s tennis team, posting an 8-6 victory at No. 3 doubles against Luther last Saturday.

12: Ben Buerkle (Roseville, Minn.), who has had a hit in 10 of the Cardinal baseball team’s 12 games this season—including a season-high eight-game hitting streak—has reached base safely in all 12 games.

20-9: With their fifth-inning, Game 2 run against St. Scholastica last Saturday, the Cardinal baseball team has now outscored their opponents 20-9 in the fifth inning through 12 games.
