Baseball - Buffalo Bulls routed by Kentucky 14-3

New, 1 comment

The bulls squared off with Kentucky for game two of their three game set after a slight weather delay. Unlike game one it was never really close. The Bulls' bats were silent and the Wildcats had their way with Buffalo's pitchers. The result was a game out of control after two innings which only got uglier.

It was not until the Bulls were down 8-0 in the fourth inning that Vinny Mallaro notched UB's first hit. He knocked the skin off a ball for a two-out home run to deep left field, his second homer of the season and team-leading sixth RBI.

But that little bit of offense did not change much. The Wildcats kept plugging away on UB's pitchers as they added two runs in the bottom of the fourth and runs in the fifth and sixth to take the 12-1 lead into the seventh inning.

The Bulls added a run in the seventh inning after Chris Kwitzer took one for the team (HBP) and Mike Abrunzo brought him around to score as he hit a deep double to center field.

The last run was scored by Billy Hartford, who opened the eighth inning with his first career homer. The shot over the left field wall made the score 13-3.

Player of the Game

Not a lot to celebrate in a 13-3 drubbing but Mallaro put together a pretty nice stat line. one for two, with a home run and he drew a walk. Honorable mention to Hartford for getting his first career homer.
