Senior co-captain and catcher Frank Pesanello’s eighth inning single Sunday allowed the Huskies to squeak out of Virginia with a tally in the win column. enter ‘Pitching, the middle of the order, and good defense basically won today’s game,’ head coach Neil McPhee said following Sunday’s win. ‘We know that’s how were going to win games.’ So far that pitching has been the strength of the team. Through 17 games, NU boasts a 3.31 team ERA, tops in the CAA and 17th in the nation. اسعار السوق السعودي للاسهم With junior Ryan Quigley (1-2, 4.56). senior co-captain Jeff Thomson (1-3, 7.20), sophomore Les Williams (0-0 3.60) and senior Trevor Smith (1-1, 3.71) the Huskies have four pitchers who have proven themselves capable to start and win weekend games. تداول جميع الاسهم The Huskies have gotten solid midweek pitching as well. Sophomore JT Ross (1-0 0.69) has been outstanding in his two starts, including holding ACC opponent Boston College to just one earned run in his seven innings of work last Tuesday. watch ‘ The bullpen too, has shown depth and has either helped the Huskies shorten games, or kept the other team in check until NU could scrap across a run. موقع اخبار الفوركس Senior Dan Zehr (2-0) leads the CAA with a 1.31 ERA and has 21 strikeouts in 20 1/3 innings.

As a team, they are hitting just .240 with runners in scoring position, a number boosted by senior third baseman Mike Tamsin’s impressive .407 mark. Help should be on the way in the coming weeks, as the return of junior outfielders Tony DiCesare and Frank Compagnone from injuries looms.
‘With two experienced hitters like Tony and Comp, we’re very anxious to get them back,’ McPhee said Sunday. ‘Having those two guys should give us a much better chance; we just can’t seem to sustain any kind of a rally right now.’
McPhee said yesterday that Compagnone was cleared by the team doctor and was waiting to hear from Dr. James Andrews on the status of his knee, which required ACL surgery.
The Huskies’ upcoming weekend against Hofstra provided a matchup, which on paper, the Huskies should be favored to win.

‘Hofstra always, always gives us trouble, no matter what their record is,’ McPhee said.’ ‘We need to take advantage or at least win the weekend. [If we win the weekend], we won’t be in a catch-up situation with the rest of the conference. That’s what our goal is.’
Third baseman Matt Prokopowicz’ (.321-1-15) has been one of the bright spots so far for Hofstra. The junior was named to the All-CAA third team last season and was named’ one of the top 50 players to watch in 2009 by the College Baseball Blog.
Quigley will start the series for the Huskies on Friday, facing Rob Kumbatovic (1-2, 6.14), while Thomson faces Brody Fontaine (0-3 12.00) Saturday, and Williams will take the mound against Nick Panzarella (0-2, 9.72) on Sunday.
