BUFFALO, N.Y.- Thanks to a strong performance from pitcher Matt Matre, the defending-champion St. Joseph's Marauders topped the Canisius Crusaders 2-1 to win the Georgetown Cup in a two-game sweep.
Matre allowed only one run and it came in the second-inning. From then on, he was dominant.
The Marauders came to his aid in the top of the 5th inning when Philip Wells hit an RBI double to left center to score Tommy Brummer, tying the game at 1.
In the 7th inning, with Wells at the plate again and Brummer on third, Canisius pitcher Colin Tenney's pitch in the dirt got away from catcher Jack Trotman. Brummer scored from third to give St. Joe's a 2-1 lead.
St. Joe's claims its second title in as many years.
