St. Joseph’s scored two runs in the third inning on a triple to right field by Wade Oliver, and Dustin Spiller improved the lead to 3-0 with a solo homer in the seventh.

The Polar Bears (21-5-1) battled back, and deadlocked the game with three runs in the eighth.

Jon Koperniak tied the game with a triple to right field that soared over the head of right-fielder Chris Doughty.
