Baseball Blasts Lehigh 22-7. One Win Away from Patriot League Title
The Black Knight offense exploded for 22 runs on 22 hits to defeat host Lehigh 22-7 in game one of the best-of-three Patriot League Championship series yesterday afternoon, May 26. The Black Knights are now one win away from taking their fifth Patriot League baseball crown since 2012.
The entire Black Knights' starting lineup had at least one hit on the day, with seven having multi-hit outings. Cam Cerruto had a career day at the plate, going 4-for-5 with three runs scored and a career-best five RBI along with a career-high two home runs. The cow catcher has been seeing the ball well as of late, tallying three home runs in the last two contests.
On his approach at the plate, Cerruto said, “I am trying to not do too much, just going up there looking for a pitch to hit. I am hunting that pitch and if I get it, I am doing a good job of putting a good swing on it.” After going down 2-0 in the first inning, the Black Knights answered back with one in the second and then exploded for seven in the fourth inning, including three off of a home run by Carter Macias.
Leading 8-2, the Black Knights piled on with one more in the fifth and four in the seventh off a two-run home run by Cam Cerruto, his second of the day after a solo shot in the fifth inning. Read more.
