Chris Cutrone (Levittown/Island Trees) had a 3-for-4 day at the plate to join the coveted century hit club and Joe Mendez (Staten Island/Monsignor Farrell) blasted two homers and scored four times to score his 100th career run.

Their performances powered the St. Joseph’s College baseball team to a doubleheader sweep of John Jay College, 13-2 and 9-1, on Sunday afternoon at James Madison High School.

The Bears (14-8) sweep the season series with the Bloodhounds (3-18) and improve to a season best six games over .500 and open a busy stretch of nine games in seven days.

St. Joseph’s improves to 12-3 in the all-time series against John Jay, winning the last 10 meetings.

Cutrone becomes the seventh Bear to knock 100 career hits, achieving the mark in 89 games. Mendez is the fourth Bear to score 100 runs and his two jacks ties the single season record for home runs with seven.

Cutrone also improved his reached base safely streak to 20 games. Francis Rapp’s reached base safely streak ended at 12 games, tied for third longest on the team this season.

Meanwhile, Mike Cundari moved into a tie for second on the all-time runs scored list with 109, tying Joseph Boccia. He sits seven runs away from being the all-time leader.

St. Joseph kicks off the week against Cairn in Langhorne, Pa., to open a stretch of three straight road games in as many days.
