TOWSON, Md. - Saint Joseph's junior pitcher Erin Gallagher picked up her 20th win of the season, while classmate Bernadette Moran led the offensive charge in the Hawks' 5-1 win at Towson on Wednesday.

The Hawks got on the board in the top of the third, scoring three runs. Moran drove in the first two on a single and fielding error by the Tigers. Junior Monica Aguilar followed with a double, scoring Moran to make it a 3-0 game.
