The game’s 29 combined runs came on just 22 hits. Continue reading →

BROOKLINE MASS- After Northeastern’s 6-5 victory over VCU Sunday, Frank Compagnone couldn’t hide his desire to make NU’s first CAA tournament since 2006.
It sure showed on the field.

CAA BASEBALL PLAYER OF THE WEEK:
Scott Krieger, George Mason
Sr., OF, Towson, Md./Calvert Hall
Krieger batted .692 (9-13) with a homer, two triples, five runs scored and seven RBI as George Mason won two of three at VCU last weekend. The senior outfielder had at least two hits and two RBI in each game, including a 4-for-5 performance with three RBI on Saturday.
