Buffalo Baseball - UB 7 - Norfolk State 1

Buffalo's bats jumped all over Norfolk early and the pitchers did the rest.

Mike Burke had an outstanding game but it was not his pitching that won the day for Buffalo. Burke played the day at short stop and went 3-4 with four runs batted in and one scored as UB rolled Norfolk State 7-1

Norfolk State 0 0 1 0 0 0 0 0 0 1 1 0

While Burke was at Short it was Mike McGee who set the tone from the mound.

In UB's first game of the year the Junior out of Drexel Hill pitched the first five innings giving up just one run on one hit. He had seven strikeouts on the day against only five walks. McGee handed his 7-1 lead over to Cory Folk who pitched a no hitter through in four innings of relief. On the day he struck out four and walked one.

It seems maybe UB has found the heir to River McWilliams.

The gems pitched by two Bulls was pleasant for Buffalo fans but rendered not necessary by UB hitters who dropped five runs in the first three innings against Justin Bhatti.

The Bulls got on the board in the second when Kyle Figgins used a fielders choice to score Richards Tyler Mautner. Later in the inning Dudek would score Richards on a sacrifice fly.

In the next inning Mike Burke hit a double down the right field line bringing Mautner, Sinay, and Topps to make the score 5-1.

UB's final two runs would come on solo homers but Pollock and Burke in the 5th.

Tomorrow UB will face off against Villanova on the same field at 11:00am.
