The Owls baseball team took three out of four games this past week after struggling the week before.

The Owls had a one game set against Adelphi in Garden City, New York.

The Owls would strike again in the fourth inning with a double down the line by Alex Wichmann, scoring Brandon Docimo.

Cleary would pick up an RBI in the same inning, lining out to center, but able to score T.J. Shea at the same time.

The offense for the WOls in the sixth inning would put the game away and give the Owls a win. T.J. Shea singled with the bases loaded, which plated Nick Baviello.

Alex Wichmann would pick up two RBI’s as he singled to center, scoring Shea and Rouleau. The Owls would lead 8-0 after six innings, and they would hold on to that lead, winning 8-4.
