April 26, 2003
Moraga, CA - In game two of the double-header the Saint Mary's baseball team was defeated 6-1 to the San Francisco Dons on Saturday, April 26 on Louis Guisto Field. With the win USF improves to 18-26/11-12 WCC, while the Gaels drop to 17-24-1/7-12-1 WCC.
San Francisco was led by starting pitcher Bryan Williams (5-3) who pitched his second complete game of the season, while allowing five hits. Gabe Palma (1-2) earned the loss for the Gaels after throwing his first career complete game, allowing four earned runs.
Due to two Saint Mary's errors and a couple of key hits, the Dons took a 2-0 lead in the first inning. Armand Gaerlan and Jason Howard both earned an RBI for USF.
The Dons added to their lead in the second inning with one run on a Nick Tarbat sacrifice fly. The run was unearned after Ryan Sittauer reached base on an error.
In the fourth inning the Gaels had a chance to score with the bases loaded but were unsuccessful. James Gaulke started the rally with a double to left field, ending any chance of a no-hitter.
USF's Joe Jacobitz connected on a two-out single in the top of the fifth inning with the bases loaded to give the Dons a 5-0 lead.
Leading the way offensively for the Gaels was Gaulke, who went 1-for-2 with two walks in his first game since March 15.
The Gaels and Dons will meet tomorrow, April 27, for the final game of the three-game series. First pitch is scheduled for 1:00 PM on Louis Guisto Field.
