BOSTON — Jared Sharkey hit a tiebreaking RBI single in the fifth inning and drove in a run during a three-run ninth, and Wheaton (Mass.) eliminated St. Joseph’s from an NCAA Division III regional baseball tournament with a 7-3 victory Saturday night after the Monks won an elimination game earlier in the day.

Bryant Salkind followed Sharkey’s ninth-inning single with an RBI double to provide the final margin.

The Lyons (29-11) took a 2-0 lead in the third, but St. Joseph’s (33-12) got three runs in the bottom of the inning, keyed by Drew Healey’s two-run double.

Wheaton tied the game in the fifth on an RBI double from Connor Gammond.

St. Joseph’s reached the night game with an 11-0 rout of Baruch (17-20) earlier Saturday. Jared Gagne and Greg Emanuelson each drove in three runs and Joey Murphy had three hits, including two triples, drove in a run, stole a base and scored four times.

Matt Bergeron (7-3) scattered five hits over seven innings and struck out six before Zach Ham and Troy Bogdahn each pitched an inning of no-hit relief.

BINGHAMTON 7, MAINE 2: Kevin Gsell hit three doubles and drove in four runs to lead the Bearcats (23-22, 12-9 America East) over the Black Bears (15-32, 11-12) in a regular-season finale in Orono.
