Bulls Split With Miami

It turned out to be a much nicer day than expected Sunday, temps were in the mid 50s and the sun shined on a pair of intensely played MAAC games.

Sharon Barr started game one for Buffalo and she pitched a gem of a game, allowing only 3 hits. Taylor Rice hot a solo homer for the Red Hawks, but other than that Sharon was in complete control striking out 6 and gaining her 12th victory of the season.

The Bulls got on the board first in the bottom of the 2nd inning when Andi Saucier singled home Sharon Barr who had reached base on a walk. After Miami tied the game in the 3rd, the bottom of the same inning saw Jessica Griffin smash a double to the center field fence and drive home Kristin Waldron all the way from first base. Jessica has been hitting the ball very well as of late. Pinch runner Kristen Gallipani scored in the 5th inning after stealing 3rd base and getting home on an error by the shortstop. Andi Saucier closed the scoring with her first collegiate home run in the 6th innng; she finished the game with a pair of RBIs.

Sharon Barr was so good in the first game that it was decided she should start game two as well. She did a good job in this one also, giving up only 2 runs in the 3rd inning, helped by a pair of wild pitches. She was also responsible for her team's only run, a 2nd inning solo homer crushed over the center field fence. The game was close throughout, Buffalo had runners n 2nd and 3rd in the 5th inning, but pinch runner Lyndsay Hampton was thrown out at the plate and that was the ball game.

The Bulls are now 4-6 in the MAC. They will host local rival Niagara Wednesday for a doubleheader beginning at 3pm EDT.
