John Jay faced off with Manhattanville, actually hung in there for half the game, losing by a respectable 9-1 score. They face Drew today, they're gonna be saving their "Aces" for their match up against Mitchell this weekend. Massoni & Colleta - tehy have to be at teh top of their game to have a shot to win any games.
CCNY was part of an impromptu HR Derby this weekend at Stevens Tech. Problem was, they weren't allowed to take any swings, they only got to throw BP. 6HR's in a double header, outscored 27-5...they didn't score as many runs as Stevens hit HR's. Lots of dissention amongst team members already, rumors that players are about to quit, what a shame. Just 2 years ago CCNY led the nation in batting, last year they were one of teh worst. From first to worst, even though there were several returning players from teh 2007 season and an All American in Richie Gomez. Major difference was a change in teh coaching staff.
Baruch picked up their first of a 9 game losing streak, in an 18-12 slugfest at NJ City. Riofrio continues his torrid start to his Soph season going 4-5, working his way towards the All Conference team. Chestnut finally got himself back ot his freshman season's form going 3-4. They are down in Florida now, hopefully they enjoy the weather, as tehy're going to get hammered every game. LAst year their head coach wisely used his ace Polius to toss 140 pitches in his first outing of teh season, which affected him for the enitre season. LEt's see who he tries to ruin this year.
