No. 30 Stetson salvaged a series split with improving Siena Wednesday night in Deland, Fla. 5-1. Dan Paolini's fifth home run of the season in the sixth inning accounted for the Saints' only run.
Will Dorsey shut down the Siena bats, pitching six strong innings and allowing just three hits and the one run to pick up the victory for the Hatters.
Sophomore Jake Werdesheim got the start on the mound for Siena, and allowed just one run entering the fifth inning before the Hatters broke through to score three times. It was the first appearance for Werdesheim since March 7 of last year due to injury. He tossed 4.2 innings, and gave up six hits and three earned runs while striking out three.
Paolini made it a 4-1 deficit with the long ball to left in the sixth, and freshman Neil Fryer kept the Saints within striking distance throughout, sacrificing just one run in 3.1 innings of relief.
