News & Notes: The Dolphins lead this series 9-8 but since 2010 it has been all about the Rams.  Farmingdale State is 7-3 against the Dolphins since 2010 after the Dolphins opened the series back in 2000, 6-1. Last year Staten Island took game one 13-3 before the Rams rallied back in game two to win 9-6 to prevent the sweep.  This year the Dolphins bring a stacked team with national power in the circle and on the plate and will want to pick up a pair of wins this afternoon to keep their win streak alive and set the CSI school record.
