When the Xaverian Brothers baseball team got off to a 1-3 start, coach Gerry Lambert did not fret. He did not get anxious and yell up a storm. He did not drastically alter his lineup or rotation.
After all, Lambert and the Hawks had been here before — just a year ago, in fact. In 2012, a five-game losing streak left Xaverian 5-7 at the beginning of May, but then the team caught fire and won 13 of its last 14 en route to a Division 1 state championship.
