South Florida baseball begins a nine-game road trip tonight starting with UCF, as the Bulls look to rebound after dropping two of three to TCU last weekend.
This will be the second meeting of the season for the Bulls and the Golden Knights. Behind the resurgent bat of junior Mike Cunningham, the Bulls defeated I-4 rival UCF 9-4 in the first meeting.
Cunningham led the way in the last meeting with three hits, including two doubles and two RBI.

Coach Brian Gregory said Tuesday the Bulls didn’t play complete, 40-minute games in their two losses last week. It’s debatable if they did Wednesday night against East Carolina (11-18, 5-11) at the Yuengling Center, but it was more than enough to put up a 73-68 overtime win. “It’s funny. There were stretches where we played […]
