Pitt baseball wins series with SIU Edwardsville Cougars

As I wrote about recently, the Pitt baseball schedule was lightening up a bit as the season nears its completion. The Panthers mostly took advantage of their first opportunity to win some games, taking two out of three from Southern Illinois Edwardsville (SIUE) this weekend.

Pitt dropped the opener, 6-4, but rebounded for 7-6 and 17-5 wins in the final two contests to take the series. First baseman Caleb Parry went 4-5 with two home runs in that blowout win in the finale.

It's disappointing that they couldn't have gotten a sweep since that would have put the team at .500. Taking two out of three, they have a 19-21 record on the season.

Next up for the baseball team is a pair of midweek games against Maryland Eastern Shore before a weekend series at Georgia Tech.
