Overview:

St Bonaventure comes into this game after losing all four games in the Snowbird Classic to Merrimack College, and Marshall University. The Bonnie’s have struggled offensively to start the year, and have only scored 11 runs in 4 games. Head Coach B.J. Salerno, has led the team since October 2021, he previously was an assistant coach for the team for the last 8 years. Outfielder Thomas Grill leads the Bonnie’s offensively hitting .400.

The Eagles have been cruising, winners of their past 6 games, and if this offense can continue to hit the way they have, expect plenty more wins to come. Brian Ellis, earned his first ASUN Player of the Week award after hitting. 556 (10/18), with 2 home runs, four doubles, 12 RBI’s, and 6 runs in four games. This lineup from top to bottom can compete with anyone. Look for the Eagles to score runs often Wednesday night.
