Pitt's baseball team looked sharp this past weekend in a three-game series against Siena. The Panthers won all three contests to move to 6-1 on the year.

The team not only won all three games, but looked good while doing it. They won the series by a total run margin of 25-11 and had little difficulty with Siena.

At 0-8 on the year, Siena is winless and, well, these aren't wins that are going to help the Panthers when it comes to finding quality victories on their schedule. But losing these sorts of games are disasters and things that just can't happen if you want to be taken seriously. The baseball team has dropped many games to very beatable opponents over the years and that's one thing that's helped keep them from getting over the .500 hump since joining the ACC. So while these sorts of games aren't RPI boosters, winning them is still sorely needed for programs like Pitt.

Next up for the team are four games against Wofford, USC Upstate, and Wright State next weekend in South Carolina.
