Lehigh looks to return to the win column on Tuesday as the Mountain Hawks play host to St. Joseph's at Limeport Stadium. Lehigh enters the game with a 13-16 record, while the Hawks are 9-18 so far in 2003.
Tonight's game marks the first meeting of the year between the two schools. Last year, they split a pair of games, including a wild 14-7 Lehigh win at Limeport. In a game that took nearly four hours to complete, the two teams combined for 21 runs on 33 hits. Then-junior Jeremy Mack was 4-for-5 at the plate for the Mountain Hawks in the win.
So far this season, junior shortstop Eric Hoffman leads Lehigh with a .338 batting average, while classmate Jesse Novalis leads the way with five long balls. Mike Walls paces St. Joseph's with a .348 average and 26 hits.
