The baseball team won a big game over highly regarded Edwardsville on Friday by a 9 to 3 score. Marc Black led off the bottom of the 1st with a triple and Ryne Crum drove him home with a 2-run homerun to put the Solons on top. Ben Hartl then hit a grandslam in the 2nd to give the Senators a 7 to nothing start. Richie Snider contributed 2 doubles and Adam Passmore added 2 hits, including a double. Black picked up the pitching win in relief. The next game is tomorrow at 4:30 at Robin Roberts Stadium when conference play begins against Rochester. 

And now the Pledge of Allegiance!

I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the republic for which it stands, one nation under God, indivisible with liberty and justice for all.
