Pitt wins first game in series over Wofford, 4-3; improves to 4-0

The Pitt baseball team's hot start continued today with a 4-3 win over Wofford. The Panthers are now 4-0 on the season.

Casey Roche, possibly; the team's best player, had two more hits and added a couple of steals today. Pitcher Ethan Mildren went eight strong innings, giving up only two earned runs. The star of the game, though, was catcher Ethan Soto, who went 2-3 with a home run and three RBI.

Roche, in particular, is really off to a hot start. The outfielder leads the team in average (.556), hits (10), home runs (2), RBI (7), total bases (16), walks (3), on base percentage (.619), steals (3), and fewest strikeouts (1).

Winning the first game of a series takes a ton of pressure off. Instead of pressing in the next two games, Pitt can go into those with a bit of confidence and also know that they just need to win more to grab the series.

Getting the first game of the series was big. The last thing Pitt could afford after winning its first three games was something as disastrous as being swept. Next goal for the Panthers is to win the series by grabbing a victory tomorrow. The two teams are scheduled to play a doubleheader tomorrow with the first game starting at noon. The first game will only be seven innings, though.
