Pitt baseball gets back on track with four straight wins

Pitt's baseball team had a tough stretch in South Carolina last weekend, losing three straight games after a hot 5-1 start. I was waiting to see how the team would respond this week playing their first home games of the year. It's early so some more losses wouldn't mean the end of the season, but it's better to get wins.

And the Panthers did plenty of that winning four straight games, sweeping two doubleheaders against Youngstown State and Manhattan.

First things first - neither Youngstown State or Manhattan is very good. The Penguins are 3-15 and the Jaspers are 3-8. Pitt probably needed to grab three out of four there, but getting all four is a bonus.

Pitt's offense picked up again, scoring a total of 40 runs - good for ten a game. You can see all of the box scores here.

The Panthers got some great starting pitching, giving up only six runs in 30 innings. Star outfielder Casey Roche added three big home runs over the four games, pushing his total to five on the season. Roche had three all of last year.

Pitt takes on West Virginia on Tuesday.
