Cold Conference Call and Class Catch-up


Let us just tell you first-hand … Buffalo is not the ideal place to play baseball in early April.  However, there were conference games on the schedule [at Canisius] and we were determined to win them no matter how cold it was. After dropping the first game of the series, we rebounded by scoring double-digit runs in game two in a 13-3 victory. Sunday, our bullpen was able to piece it together in the end and it was another game three win for the Red Foxes, this time by a score of 7-3.  It was a good series win for us leaving the weekend 4-2 in conference and 19-6 overall.  


This week we won at Bucknell 13-1 on Tuesday before hosting Holy Cross on Wednesday, which was a 6-5 victory in 10 innings. Mid-week games allow for pitchers like us to stay back on campus and attend class.  Since neither of us is scheduled to pitch, our coach will let us stay back and catch up on any schoolwork we’re behind on. Through the grueling schedule of spring, 54 games and taking a full class load, things can become very busy. Staying home for mid-week games like Bucknell can be very helpful in continuing academic success.  


We continue our MAAC schedule this weekend as Rider will come to town. Rider, the defending MAAC champion, will be a tough test, one we will be ready for. The three-game set will begin with a doubleheader at noon on Saturday, followed by a single game Sunday.
