FAIRFIELD, Conn. – The weather has forced another change to the Fairfield University baseball schedule. The Stags game at NYIT has been postponed until Wednesday, April 12 at 3pm. However, the home contest against Yale will still be played as the forecast calls for more spring-like weather at 61 degrees.

IN CASE YOU MISSED IT: The Stags are coming off their third-straight series win as they took two out of three from the Hartford Hawks. The offense exploded in the final game as Fairfield tallied a season-high 10 runs and got another quality pitching performance from Kyle Dube to seal the complete team win. In the series, the Stags hit .337 as a team with Tyler Gambardella and Mitch Williams both recording .500 batting averages in the three games. Jack Gethings led the team with six hits while Michael Conti tabbed four RBI to lead the squad. Freshman Ian Halpin also impressed on the mound and in the batter’s box by hitting .600 (3-for-5) with four runs scored and throwing two scoreless innings.

THE BULLDOGS SCOUTING REPORT: The Bulldogs enter Wednesday’s contest with a 12-11 mark but have won nine of their last 11 outings. Yale is led offensively by last year’s Second Team All-Ivy League performer Richard Slenker, who has notched a .311 batting average while appearing in 21 games. The power hitter for the squad is Slenker’s Pound Ridge, N.Y., teammate Griffin Dey who has blasted seven home runs in the early season.

UP NEXT: The Stags will play their first conference home series when they host Manhattan beginning with a double header on Saturday at noon.
