Bob Guerriero picked up his first head coaching victory in St. John’s 6-3 win over 2018 MEAC Champion Bethune-Cookman before falling to Indiana on the second day of the FAU “First Pitch” Classic.

“Of course it’s great to get that first win, but it’s really more important for the team to get on the board with a win,” coach Guerriero said. “The girls are playing hard and tough and it was good to see their efforts result in a win.”

Rookie Angela Saric tossed her first collegiate complete game, a three-run, four-strikeout effort over seven innings of work.

St. John’s (2-3) remains undefeated against the Wildcats, going 5-0 since 1998.

The team closed out its opening weekend with a 4-3 victory over Virginia at the FAU “First Pitch” Classic Sunday morning after dropping two contests on Friday

“I thought we played hard, overcame a few miscues and came up with some timely hitting and clutch pitching,” Guerriero said.

Amelia Ditolvo led the way for the Red Storm, registering a 2-for-2 outing with an RBI and a run. She leads the Johnnies with four RBIs through five games.

Right-hander Madison Morris tossed a complete game in her first win of the season after picking up a no-decision in her career-high 15-strikeout performance against Florida Atlantic Friday evening.

The Red Storm continues its road trip next weekend as they head to the Gamecock Invitational hosted by South Carolina on February 15.
