College of Staten Island Baseball broke their four game losing streak with a 6-3 victory over SUNY-New Paltz on Tuesday afternoon. The Dolphins extend their record to 2-6.
When the Dolphins got two easy out to start the top of the first, the Hawks of New Paltz acted quick garnering three straight hits and scoring a run. CSI answered back right away when Henry Roman reached on a single and then reached home after a Hawk error.
The Dolphins kept New Paltz silent at the top of the second as they took control of the bottom half. Mark Glennerster started off with a single to right field bringing up Ramces Tibvurcio who reached on a walk. Next up, Dan Lynch pushed both players forward a base on a SAC bunt. Up came Bryan Moreno to slam a two run double into left center to give the Dolphins a 3-1 lead.
Three quick outs for the Hawks at the top third brought CSI up to bat where they tallied on another run by Joe Falcone who reached on a double and scored off of a fielder’s choice play by Sal Todaro.
Pitcher Pat Gale struck out the first two hitters followed by a caught line drive to right field ending New Paltz’s chance to score at the top of the fourth inning. CSI took advantage of the pitching change by the Hawks tallying three hits and two more runs off of a Falcone RBI single and a SAC fly by Todaro.
A CSI error and a passed ball helped the Hawks to two more runs in the sixth inning but it was not enough for the final 6-3 score.
Falcone led the team with three hits and an RBi whole Moreno and Todaro tallied two RBI apiece.
Gale took the win for CSI with a total of 12 strikeouts in six innings. Mike Van Pelt had the save finishing the final three innings allowing just two hits.
The Dolphins will face SUNY-Purchase tomorrow afternoon in a 4:00 pm contest at the CSI Baseball Complex.
