Pitt's baseball team splits Sunday doubleheader with Wofford, moves to 5-1 on season

Pitt's baseball team wrapped up another successful series with a split in a Sunday doubleheader against Wofford. The Panthers won the series two games to one and are now 5-1 on the season.

Pitt lost a close game 3-2 in the first contest. Due to playing a doubleheader, the game lasted only seven innings. But in the second game, the Panthers showed off some of that offense that has led them to five wins already. Pitt won 19-8 with a barrage of hits and home runs.

Steve Shelinski took over the team lead in home runs with a pair in that second game. He now has three on the season.

Next up for Pitt is the Bulldog Challenge in Charleston, South Carolina next weekend. Over Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, they'll face The Citadel, UNC Asheville, and Virginia Commonwealth. The Citadel and UNC Asheville are playing about .500 baseball combined, but VCU is a perfect 5-0. That last game could be a good one.

Will be interesting to see if Pitt can squeak into the rankings this week.
