CINCINNATI, Ohio -- Mount St. Joseph relied on three home runs to pick up a 6-2 victory over Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology to open Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference play on Saturday night.
Nathan Hunter, Luke Bowman and Garrett Hogan hit the round trippers for the Lions as an originally scheduled doubleheader was reduced to one game.
The nightcap of the HCAC opening doubleheader was cancelled due to rain and will not be rescheduled due to conference rules.
Mount St. Joseph improved to 10-8 and 1-0 in HCAC play, while Rose-Hulman dropped to 5-13 and 0-1 in league games. The Fightin' Engineers return to conference play at home on Wednesday with a 4 p.m. doubleheader against Earlham.
