St. Joe scored two runs on a passed ball in the first inning, and then took firm control with four runs in the fifth. Glorioso’s RBI single was part of the latter rally, which also included a St. Al error that allowed two runs to score.

The Flashes did not get on the board until the top of the seventh. Connor Gaul led off with a triple and scored on a single by Robert Lee to cut it to 6-1. Glorioso retired the next three batters in order, however, to squash any thoughts of a comeback.

Gaul went 2-for-3 with a run scored, and also turned in a solid pitching performance. He threw 4 1/3 innings and allowed five runs, but only one was earned. Gaul struck out three batters, walked two, and allowed three hits.

Keller Bradley finished with 1 2/3 innings of relief and allowed one unearned run while striking out two.

St. Al will return to action Tuesday at 6:30 p.m., against Central Hinds at Bazinsky Field.
