Baseball Team Goes 1-2 Against VCU

The baseball team faced off against Virginia Commonwealth in a three game series this past weekend.

The Hawks were supposed to play the first game of the series on Friday, but the game was postponed due to rain. It was then rescheduled for Sunday, meaning the Hawks would be competing in a double header.

The series got off to a good start on Saturday afternoon, as the Hawks were able to defeat VCU 6-4 behind a strong pitching performance by Pat Light and a three hit, two RBI day for Jamie Rosenkranz.

However, the Hawks were not able to keep up their winning ways as they dropped both games of the doubleheader on Sunday. They were shut-out 8-0 in the first game, as they weren’t able to do anything offensively.

In the next game, the Hawks’ batters woke up, but in the end it wasn’t enough as the Hawks fell 5-3.

The Hawks will travel down to Troy, Alabama this week to take on the University of Troy in a four game set. From there, they will travel to Georgia State next Tuesday before they come back home for their home opener on March 16 against Fairleigh Dickinson.
