Tampa- The USF Bulls won a non-conference game Tuesday evening 7-3 against the Bethune-Cookman University Wildcats (30-22, 17-7 MEAC).
The Bulls (32-16, 15-3) had a strong day at the plate with 14 hits and a tremendous performance from James Ramsay, Levi Borders, and Nik Alfonso. Bulls pitcher Mike Clarkson pitched a good game throwing 6.1 innings and allowing only three runs on five hits but would not get a decision.
The scoring started in the first when Ramsay drove in lead-off man Kyle Teaf with a double for one of his two RBI’s on the night to take an early 1-0 lead. Ramsay went 3-for-5, also scoring a run.
In the second, Borders hit his second triple of the year and was driven in by Alfonso to make the score 2-0. Borders and Alfonso would combine for a total of seven hits on eight at-bats.
Borders would strike again with a single and stole second to get into scoring position in the fourth inning. Alfonso singled once again and brought around Borders to make the score 3-0 for his second RBI of the game, as well as his 20th RBI of the year.
The Bulls did feel a bit of a scare in the seventh inning as David Lee got on base and was driven around the bases by Eric Sams to cut the lead to 3-1. Eros Modena reached base next and P.J. Biocic hit a two RBI double, bringing around Sams and Modena to tie the game 3-3 in the seventh inning.
Bulls designated hitter Chris Norton hit a two-run home run in the seventh to once again extend the lead for the Bulls and they would never look back from there. They scored two more in the eighth to wrap up the game. Adrian Puig got his third win of the year and Lawrence Pardo finished the game off for the Bulls.
The Bulls will travel to New Jersey this weekend for a crucial three game series against conference rival Seton Hall. The series starts Friday night and ends with a double header Saturday.
