DOLPHINS BASEBALL SPLITS ON OPENING DAY AGAINST FREDONIA

The College of Staten Island men’s baseball squad had its first full day of outdoor baseball today, and they got their first win of the 2016 season as well, earning a doubleheader split against SUNY – Fredonia as part of the Cal Ripken DIII Experience in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.  CSI won the opening game of the two-game set, 5-3, falling in game two by a 7-3 count.  CSI is now 1-1 on the season, while Fredonia is 2-1.

Statistics from the games are unavailable at press time, but CSI got a great opening day performance from first-year pitcher Tom Musso on the mound.  He would score the win and Dan Newman the save for CSI as they broke open an early 2-2 tie with big runs in the later innings to capitalize on the win.

In the second game, CSI fell victim to a tough first inning, yielding four runs before settling down and playing even the rest of the way.  Nick Delprete added two hits and a double, while Frank Smith added an RBI-single.

CSI will play a six-game set in Myrtle Beach.  Tomorrow at Noon they will face off against Muhlenberg College for their second doubleheader in as many days.
