SOUTH ORANGE, N.J. - Senior Josh Prevost (Belle Mead, N.J.) threw his third complete game of the season as the Seton Hall baseball team defeated Fairleigh Dickinson, 3-1, on Friday.
Prevost went the distance to improve to a perfect 6-0 this season while allowing just one earned run and four hits. He also struck out five batters and walked just one.
Seton Hall (13-4) got on the board first with a run in the bottom of the third. Chris Chiaradio (Teaneck, N.J.) led off with a single and was replaced at first by Derek Jenkins (Annandale, N.J.) who followed with a fielder's choice. After Jenkins stole second, Weigel singled to left field, advancing Jenkins to third base. Two batters later, Kyle Grimm (Bergenfield, N.J.) plated Jenkins with a sacrifice fly to give Seton Hall a 1-0 lead.
After FDU tied the score in the top of the six, the Pirates grabbed the lead back for good in the bottom of the inning. With one out, Boyd singled up the middle. Dillon Hamlin (Colts Neck, N.J.) followed with a single to left center field, advancing Boyd to third. After Hamlin stole second base, Chris Selden (Allenhurst, N.J.) delivered a two-RBI single that hit the mound and bounced into centerfield.
With Seton Hall in front 3-1, Prevost kept the Knights off the scoreboard over the remaining three innings.
