The Hurricanes, averaging 10.5 runs a game, won their first five games before losing the final game of a three-game set against Manhattan College last weekend.

Junior Andrew Barbosa has an ERA of 3.55, while last season’s Big East Pitcher of the Year, Randy Fontanez, has a 0-2 record with 4.72 ERA.
Outfielder Junior Carlin leads the team with 10 hits and a .400 average, collecting two hits in each of the three games in last weekend’s Big Ten/Big East Challenge, where the Bulls went 1-2.
Today’s game against USF will be Miami’s first road game, and it is expected to send freshman left-handed pitcher Stephen Ewing to the mound for his first start.
