Final Stats

Michigan State completed a dominating pitching weekend with a 5-1 win over Siena in the final game of a three-game set Sunday in East Lansing, Mich. Bryan Goossens took the loss, but pitched six solid innings allowing just two earned runs for the Saints.

The game was tied 1-1 in the sixth when Blaise Selter led-off with a home run that broke that tie and provided the game-winning run.

Jimmy Pickens three-run double off Kyano Cummings in the seventh gave the Spartans more than enough insurance as the Saints managed just five hits and a single unearned run.

Siena scored just two runs all weekend against Michigan State's imposing staff.

Joel Fisher's RBI single in the second inning plated the game's first run, but John Rooney scored the equalizer in the fourth for the Saints following a fielding error.

Cam Vieaux got the win for Michigan State, tossing 6.2 innings and allowing five hits and the unearned run. Anthony Misiewicz and Jeff Kinley worked the final 2.1 innings without allowing a hit.

The Saints try to get back in the win column Tuesday at UMass.
