Led by senior outfielder Ethan Paquette’s offensive outburst and school record-breaking performance on Tuesday afternoon, the Pride baseball team notched a 22-11 victory against New York Tech.
Over the weekend the Hofstra Pride baseball team traveled to State College, PA for its first ever meeting with the Penn State Nittany Lions. After winning the series opener on Friday to push its win streak to six games, the Pride dropped the next three including a double-header sweep on Saturday to fall to 6-13 on the season.
The signing of Nick Johnson was disaster of a move by the Yankees for four reasons. Nick Johnson adds no versatility to the Yankees defense or power or speed to the offense. Johnson can only play first base or designated hitter; he is injury prone as shown by him missing all of the 2007 season. What makes his signing even worse is that for one million dollars more the Yankees could have resigned the hero of the 2009 World Series: Hideki Matsui.
Despite trailing the Manhattan Jaspers 7-4 going into the seventh inning of Wednesday’s game, the Pride’s offense scored four runs to put them ahead. The Pride never looked back and hung on for the 11-7 win at University Field. The win marks the Pride’s fifth consecutive victory, moving it to 5-10 on the season and gives it a 17-9 record against the Jaspers all-time.
Despite a 5-3 lead after seven innings, the Pride Baseball team could not withstand the University of Maryland as they eventually suffered a 7-5 loss in College Park, MD on Sunday. With the loss, the Pride has now dropped nine straight games to begin the season.
Despite, an early 2-0 lead, the Pride baseball team (0-5) fell short for the third straight game to the no. 2 Florida State Seminoles (5-0), 14-4.
In their last basketball game in front of a Mack Sports Complex crowd, Pride seniors Cornelius Vines and Miklos Szabo helped the Pride to an 87-74 victory against the Georgia State Panthers.
As the Yankees face off with the Phillies in the World Series , Mets fans who are not cringing at the thought of either their cross-town rival or their division nemesis collecting a World Series ring, will give a collective yawn. One friend of mine who is a Mets fan declared he is just going to sleep through the World Series. Another one refuses to acknowledge that the World Series is even occurring.
In Game One of the World Series, the Phillies proved once and for all that they are legitimate champions of the National League and worthy contenders to repeat as Major League Baseball’s top team. In the face of bad weather on the road and the undeniably intimidating mystique of the Yankee legacy, the Phillies dominated in every sense: their pitching dominated Yankee hitting and their hitting dominated Yankee pitching.
And then there were eight. The Major League Baseball playoff field has been set. And, this year’s teams have all the familiar faces. Out of the eight teams, six have been in the World Series this decade, and five have won the title. Yet, each team has a different story.
