Staten Island improves to 22-8-1 while the Bearcats fall to 12-16
Game 1: Staten Island 12, Baruch 1
Junior right-hander Derek Jentz picked up his third win of the season after staying a step ahead of the Bearcats.  Jentz pitched six innings of four-hit ball with a total of six strikeouts and just two walks. Both Glenn Glennerster and Bobby Drake collected a triple to center field as the Dolphins bounced back to earn a 12-1 victory in game one.
The Dolphins capitalized on their hottest hitting game in regulation with 15 hits, by scoring 12 runs, their third highest total of the season.  Glenn Glennerster tripled in a perfect 4-for-4 game one with five RBIs, a single season high for the junior.
Staten Island got on the board first after Sconzo was walked and DiMarco slipped one through the left side to put two runners on with no outs in the top of the first. After Meola struck out and Frank Muzzio grounded out to the first baseman, Glennerster came to the play with two men in scoring position with two outs.  Glennerster would not waste the opportunity and hit a two RBI single to left center. 
With a two-run lead the Dolphins would keep their foot on the gas pedal to make sure that the Bearcats did not find their way back into this game.  Nick Meola would hit an infield single to the shortstop which scored Sconzo from third to bring the Dolphins’ lead up to 3-0.
CSI would their second highest run total of the game in the third inning with three more runs.  Frank Muzzio would reach after taking a pitch off of the foot after just three pitches to put him on the bags before Glennerster moved him all the way to third with a double to right field. Jordan Wilson has had a nice string of games as of late which has earned him a spot in the starting lineup and he made his case to stay there as he hit a two RBI single to right field and would advance to second a fielding error by the right fielder. 
Acevedo broke up Jentz’s shutout bid with a one-out single through the right side.  The single brought in Buttar for the Bearcats’ lone run of the game.
Staten Island responded with four more runs with two outs after Glennerster and Drake both hit RBI triples over the center fielders head.  Josh Mercado and Wilson drove both Glennerster and Drake in with singles into right field to five the Dolphins 12 runs in the game.
Wilson finished game one 2-for-4 with a career high three RBIs. Bobby Drake would go on to go 2-for-4 with a pair of runs and RBIs.
Game 2: Staten Island 3, Baruch 2 (9 inn.)
Wilson’s hot afternoon continued with a leadoff single to center field.  Wilson wasted no time jetting over to second base to put himself into scoring position for the Dolphins. Jett Nouvertne would lay down a bunt and reach on a fielding error by the pitcher as he was unable to cleanly field the ball.  On that bunt, Wilson trotted over to third.  Sconzo would ground out to the shortstop but sure out at first cost the Bearcats a run as Wilson would cross the plate for the game’s first run.
After the Dolphins scored their run there was a lull in the action where neither team was able to get anything going and put a run up on the board.  It wasn’t until the top of the seventh that Baruch was able to change the game in their favor. 
Mendoza Jr. started the Bearcats off with a single to left field followed by a fly out by Buttar.  Daley would single up the middle and move Mendoza Jr. over to second before St. Hilaire would reach on a fielder’s choice. A passed ball allowed both runners to get into scoring position for the Bearcats and just one batter later Acevedo hit a two RBI single up the middle to give his team a one-run lead heading into the bottom of the seventh.
The Dolphins were staring defeat in the eyes but refused to shy away as Drake would lay down a sacrifice bunt to move Russo into scoring position before eventually stealing third base. Nouvertne stepped to the plate with two outs and the tying run on third and new exactly what he had to do and executed it to perfection. Nouvertne waited for his pitch and hit a single to right field to score Sal Russo from third, tying the game and sending it into extra innings.
The eighth inning would go scoreless which set up the dramatic ending to yet another extra innings game by the Dolphins.
Ariel Paez would squeeze a single through the left side to get on base to set up Drake for another walk off.  Drake has become Mr. Clutch at the plate when his team needs him the most and this afternoon was no different.  Drake slugged a deep shot to center field to score Paez all the way from first an RBI double walk off to win the game.
Wilson finished game two 2-for-3 with a run while Drake finished 1-for-3 with an RBI. On the mound Christian Capellan was stellar, pitched a complete game plus two innings, striking out seven while walking just on batter while allowing six hits.  Capellan picks up his fourth win of the year to improve to 4-2 overall.
The Dolphins return to action on Tuesday where they will travel to New Paltz, NY to take on New Paltz in a non-conference game at 4:00 PM.
