Tournament Roundup: St. Mary’s baseball upset by Pope Francis

The two-time defending Division 2 state champion St. Mary's baseball team will not have an opportunity to continue chasing a three-peat, as the No. 5 Spartans were upset Monday at the hands of No. 28 Pope Francis by a score of 3-0 in the Div. 2 tournament Round of 32 at Fraser Field. 

Aiven Cabral put together a strong pitching performance despite the loss, going all seven innings and allowing three runs on four hits with 13 strikeouts. 

Tad Giardina went 2-for-3 with a triple in the loss, while John Nowicki (1-for-3) had the only other hit for the Spartans. 

St. Mary's closes out the season at 12-10.
