DAVENPORT, FLA. – The Northwood University baseball team dropped a 15-4 contest to Saint Joseph's Tuesday afternoon (March 8).
Northwood falls to 5-5 on the season. Saint Joseph's improves to 6-5.

Saint Joseph's scored 14 of their 15 runs in the first five innings of the game – three in the first, one in the third, three in the fourth and seven in the fifth. The Pumas had four home runs in that stretch – a grand slam and a trio of three run homers. NU's defense struggled in the game as well – seven Northwood errors in the game led to eight unearned runs for Saint Joseph's.
