All-Time Series:  CSI leads, 67-11
Last Meeting: March 29, 2019 – CCNY won 5-1
Players to Watch (CSI): After a big statistical day on Wednesday, Jett Nouvertne still leads the team in hitting, batting .434 with a team-best 23 hits, six triples, and 10 RBI, which is tied for the team lead with Andrew Nathan, who raised his batting average to .296 with a big day as well on Wednesday.  Domenick Castiglione is at .400 for the season, and is second on the squad with eight walks, raising his on-base percentage to .510, tops on the squad.  Michael Ciancio is batting .314.  In limited at-bats Joseph Manzi is batting a heavy .600 (6-10) while Sean Becker is at a solid .367 (11-30).  With a pair of stolen bags on Wednesday, Nick Falcone has a team-best seven this season.  
Players to Watch (CCNY): The Beavers have four players doing heavy damage at the plate this season, led by Hamley Volquez, who is at .455 with a homer and six RBI.  Right behind him is the lethal Michael Espinal, who is batting .441 with six extra-bases, including two homers and a team-best 11 RBI.  Alex Velazquez has made six starts and is holding his own batting .421 after 19 at-bats.  Stephen Peters is the hits leader with 16, leading the team also in runs scored with 13 while batting .390.  Look for Peter Komaroski of Velazquez to get innings this weekend.  Komaroski is 0-2 with a 5.51 while Velazquez is due for a start and has been stellar so far with a 1-0 record and 1.80 ERA after a pair of starts.
News & Notes: The overall record in this series shows that it has been a series overwhelmingly in favor of CSI, but the Beavers swept the Dolphins last year in a pair of tight games, 3-2, and 7-5, and won just yesterday, 5-1.  It’s the first-time ever that the Beavers have won three-straight against the Dolphins since the series started in 1978.  Prior to that three-game streak, CSI had won 12 games in a row over CCNY and had won 17-straight games over the Beavers at home.  Today’s games are the second and third in a three-game set.  Overall, CSI is 16-5 on the road all-time vs. CCNY, but the Beavers have fared well so far at home, going 0-2 this season.  Last year, CCNY went 12-21 overall but 6-4 in the CUNYAC.  They fell in the single-elimination portion of the Tournament to Baruch College by a score of 19-7.  Both teams share a common opponent in Yeshiva University.  CCNY scored 5-0 & 6-1 wins over Yeshiva in a pair of lower scoring contests, while CSI is coming off of tremendous high-scoring wins against the Maccabees by scores of 30-2 and 15-6.  The 30 runs they scored in the opener were a new program record, breaking the former record of 26 runs that was achieved three other times.
