The College of Staten Island baseball team is back at it today, with thoughts of erasing a three-game losing streak in mind as they take on visiting Yeshiva University at the CSI Baseball Complex for a 5pm doubleheader.  Yeshiva is on an eight-game skid as well so they too will be looking to get on the winning side of the equation tonight as well.

Matchup: College of Staten Island (5-9) vs. Yeshiva University (1-9)
Where: CSI Baseball Complex – 2800 Victory Boulevard, Staten Island, NY

News & Notes: The CSI vs. Yeshiva series dates back to 2006, and it is one that has been owned by the Dolphins.  They have won all 16 meetings and 13 of the 16 wins have been by 10 or more runs.  That includes a doubleheader sweep last season by scores of 16-1, and 16-0 by CSI.  Something has to give this evening as CSI has struggled on the mound this season, allowing a hefty 9.08 team ERA, while Yeshiva has struggled at the plate, batting just .162 as a team.  CSI is looking to stop a three-game skid, while the Maccabees are on an eight-game slide after starting the season 1-1.  Yeshiva finished 4-25 a year ago and just 1-11 on the road.  They are 1-5 on the road this season, while CSI is 2-5 at home.
