Vincent has best start of season for Bonnies
Casey Vincent helped the St. Bonaventure baseball team pick up a win over Saint Louis last week, starting on the mound in a 6-5 Atlantic 10 victory.
Vincent wasn’t credited with the win, but scattered six hits and two earned runs over seven innings of work. He struck out five batters and walked two before turning the ball over to the bullpen with the game tied.
Danny Urban pitched two scoreless frames to take the win and Donovan Moffat picked up the save. Johnsonburg’s Cole Peterson had two hits on the day and came around to score the winning run on a hit by Urban in the top of the 12th inning.
The Bonnies are scheduled to host Dayton for a three-game series this weekend.
