Tuesday Around The MAAC

Jenn Solis earned her first college win Tuesday
The MAAC did well in non conference play Tuesday. Let's begin in Fairfield, CT where the Stags were at the ball park of their crosstown rival Sacred Heart. The Pioneers seemed to be in control of this game when the Stags exploded for an incredible 11 seventh inning runs to win going away, 14-6. Freshman Nicole Capra had another 3 for 3 day for Fairfield; she drove home two runs as did Lauren Liseth, Taylor August, Sammy Ruffolo and Kristen Filicia.

Canisius swept a pair of games from local rival St. Bonaventure in their home opener. The Griffs overcame a 4-0 deficit in game one when they hit six consecutive singles in the fifth inning to tie the game. They added three more runs in the sixth inning for the 7-4 win. Robin Kennery drove home three runs; Michelle DelPrince was 2 for 2. In game two, freshman Jenn Solis made her first college start, and got the win, 4-2. Meghan Cuda was 3 for 4 in the game, and hit her sixth triple of the season.

Siena swept a home doubleheader vs. Holy Cross, and their bats were red hot in the pair of run rule wins. The Saints won game one 10-2 in five innings; Jessika-Jo Sandrini led the way with three RBIs, and the complete game win in the circle. Game two saw the Saints win again in five innings, 14-7. Alyssa Lancaster hit 3 for 4 with three RBIs; Stephanie Viggiano was 3 for 3 and Mandy Ferro also had three hits.

Niagara opened their home schedule by dropping a doubleheader to local rival Buffalo. The Purple Eagles were run ruled, 8-0, in game one as Kim Bryson's difficult junior year continued. She is now 0-11 in the circle this season. Game two lasted only five innings, but this time due to a rain storm that shortened the game. Niagara lost 1-0 despite another strong pitching performance by Jen Sansano.
