Chris Kellogg pitched a seven-inning complete game allowing only one earned run as St. Lawrence University's baseball team won game one of a Liberty League doubleheader against Clarkson in games played at Skidmore on Sunday, but the Knights bounced back with a 9-1 win in game two.

The Saints took three of four in the series with the Golden Knights and are 11-8 overall and 7-4 in the Liberty League. The Saints are scheduled to play a makeup doubleheader at Vassar on Tuesday.

Clarkson led 2-0 with single runs in the top of the second and top of the fourth, but the Saints battled back with a run in the bottom of the fourth on Brian Magovney's run-scoring single. The Saints took the lead with two in the bottom of the fifth as Mark Syron was hit by a pitch, stole second and after a Bryan Palermo single and a walk to Khifer O'Connor loaded the bases, Kevin Prindle hit a run-scoring fielder's choice and Palermo scored on an error for the 3-2 lead.

Kellogg scattered seven hits in the seven inning win.

Clarkson broke open game two with a five-run third inning and roughed up Saint pitching with 15 hits in the 9-1 win.

Clarkson senior Jarrodd Mattingly pitched a nine-inning complete game, allowing just five hits with seven strikeouts. O'Connor had two of the five Saint hits in the game.
