Pitching in relief, Baranski was lights out in three critical games against WPI this weekend. Springfield completed a three-game sweep of the Engineers to earn the No. 2 seed in the upcoming NEWMAC tournament.
Appearing in all three games in relief, Baranski earned two saves and a win. On Friday, the senior pitched the final two outs of the ninth before Springfield walked off with the win in the bottom half of the inning. Baranski then picked up back-to-back saves in Saturday's doubleheader. In 3.2 innings of relief, he allowed just one hit, no runs, no walks and struck out two for an ERA of 0.00.
The Pride are on the road on Monday and Tuesday this week, playing RIC on Monday afternoon at 3:30 p.m. and Westfield State on Tuesday at the same time.
