Remsen St. Mary's pounded out 12 hits in four innings against Gehlen Catholic pitching Monday night in Remsen, picking up its third victory over the Jays this summer 15-1 in five innings at Marv Thelen Memorial Field.

The Hawks kept three streaks alive with the win, improving to 8-0 at home, 13-0 in the War Eagle Conference and 15-0 when scoring 10 or more runs this season.

The league leaders crossed the plate 10 times in the third inning alone Monday night, highlighted by two-run doubles by Zach Arnold, Louis Pick and Danny Harpenau and senior Jason Wesselmann's first career home run off Gehlen pitcher TJ Britton. Britton was pitching for the first time since eight grade in relief of starter Craig Schlesser, who allowed 12 runs (8 earned) on eight hits and three walks in two-plus innings.

St. Mary's (22-4) took a 3-0 lead on Schlesser in the first inning as Harpenau ripped an RBI single up the middle and two more runs came around on Gehlen errors. Sophomore catcher Jon Klein made it 4-0 with an RBI single in the third and scored from third on a while throw from the outfield to stretch the lead to 5-0.

Senior starting pitcher Jeremy Majeres kept the Jays (11-9, 5-6 WEC) off stride from the start, mixing an assortment of off-speed pitches and fastballs as he fanned six batters and scattered four singles to Mitch Kurth, Britton, Eric Rohe and pinch hitter Tim Rosener. Rohe scored Gehlen's only run on a balk in the fifth.

Majeres helped himself at the plate by drawing walks in his first three at bats and roping a double in the fourth.

Both teams will be back at home Wednesday as the Hawks host Unity Christian at Marv Thelen Field and the Jays welcome South O'Brien to the Riverview Complex.
