UMass baseball looking to continue winning ways

Jeff Bernstein/Collegian

Coming strong off of a 2-1 weekend series against George Washington, the Massachusetts baseball team looks to continue its winning trends in Worcester against Holy Cross on Tuesday afternoon.

The Minutemen (6-9, 2-1 Atlantic 10) have a lot of momentum going into the matchup against the Crusaders (10-10-1).

UMass has gone 5-1 in its recent six-game stretch, in which it has outscored its opponents by a combined score of 45-30.

Holy Cross, on the other hand, is 3-2-1 in its last six games, despite being outscored by a combined 27-16 by opposing teams. The Crusaders’ lone tie, a 16-inning bout on the road against Connecticut, ended at 2-2 and started off the stretch.

The Maroon and White have been highlighted by effective pitching, strong fielding and timely hitting. Without having played a single game on their home field yet, the all-around solid team play has been critical to their success.

All 15 of the Minutemen’s games this season have either been away or on neutral turf. UMass holds a 2-3 record when playing away as compared to a 4-6 record in neutral contests. The Minutemen’s first home game of the year does not come until April 6 against Connecticut, a long 21 games deep into the season.

Comparatively, Holy Cross boasts a 3-1 home record and a 4-0 neutral record this year, while owning a bleak 4-9-1 road record.

Nevertheless, the Crusaders will certainly prove to be a tough opponent as the Minutemen look to promote the trend of improving their spot in the A-10 standings.
