LAST TIME OUT
Quinnipiac's game against High Point lasted just four innings before the game was called due to unplayable field conditions after a flash lightning storm. The game, and the statistics, will not count in Quinnipiac's final record.

DO IT RUDY
Brian Ruditys (Boothwyn, Pa.) is currently batting .320 (8-25) and leads the Bobcats with three multiple-hit games. Ruditys also boasts a .419 on-base percentage to go along with a .400 slugging percentage for a .819 OPS, good for second on the Bobcats' roster.


VIN TO WIN
Vincent Guglietti saw his team-high six game hitting streak come to an end last week, but has hit safely in his last three outings. Guglietti leads the teams in batting average (.333), hits (12), runs scored (9), on-base percentage (.429) and slugging percentage (.417).
