It’s a Hurricane warning
There probably isn’t a good time to play No. 6 Miami, but the Bulls enter a two game series against the Hurricanes with some momentum.
The USF baseball team hosts powerhouse Miami tonight at 7 at Red McEwen Field.
The Bulls have won four straight and eight of their last nine games, all of which were on their home field.
Miami has only played on the road once this season, at Florida International where the Hurricanes lost 11-7.
But the Hurricanes have a streak of their own. Miami (15-3) has won 11 straight games, with its last defeat Feb. 26 against the Golden Panthers.
The Hurricanes last win came against Rutgers in 10 innings.
On the mound for the Bulls will be Casey Hudspeth. The freshman is 2-1 on the season with 27 strikeouts on the season with only nine walks. He enters the game with a 4.23 ERA.
And the Bulls have been clicking lately at the plate. Second baseman Mike Macaluso has been on a tear, hitting .467 this month.
Junior Bryan Hierlmeier is beginning to prove himself as well. He went into spring break ninth in the batting order, but four home runs in one week moved him to second in the order.
On the mound for Miami will be Vince Bongiovanni. He is 2-0 on the season and has 21 strikeouts in 26 innings pitched.
Miami is hitting .330 as a team this season.

Bulls battle with ECU in OT win
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 […]
