Inching Closer to ACC Play


It was another good week as we beat Coppin State on Tuesday and swept Bucknell over the weekend.


We continued our long homestand, defeating Coppin St. 12-0. It was a good day for us because not only did we explode for 12 runs and throw a shortened 7-inning shutout, but several guys also made their Cavalier debuts. On the mound, Brad Grove and Shane Warren combined for four perfect innings. David Caldwell, Greg Lamp and Will Campbell all got their first Cavalier at-bats with Campbell notching a single.


The weekend series with Bucknell was good for us in that we played two close ballgames. Friday afternoon, Sean Doolittle gave another impressive performance on the hill, and Casey Lambert was able to convert his first save of the season. Offensively, runs were a little harder to come by as the Bison pitcher threw on both sides of the plate and changed speeds effectively. However, we were able to manufacture two runs with bunts and situational hitting – something that will become imperative to our success as we get into ACC play.


Due to bad weather forecast for the area on Sunday – we played a doubleheader on Saturday. Game 1 was very similar to Friday’s, as we won 3-0 behind Brandon Guyer’s three doubles and Jacob Thompson’s ability to throw strikes and overpower the Bucknell hitters. In Game 2, Matt Packer gave another solid start with Jake Rule and Robert Poutier closing the door out of the ‘pen. Offensively, we were paced by Beau Seabury and Mike Mitchell, who had three hits a piece.


We’ll look to continue the winning ways this week as we finish up our first homestand against VMI on Tuesday and Delaware over the weekend. League play is fast approaching, and we have a little under two weeks to fine tune the details.


Go Hoos!
