Purple Knights Fall To Adelphi In Non-Conference Baseball Action

Bridgeport, Conn.-The University of Bridgeport baseball team dropped a 16-2 home decision to the Adelphi University Panthers in non-conference action on a damp and chilly afternoon in Seaside Park.  With the loss, UB is now 11-19 overall.  Adelphi moves its overall season mark to 21-5.

Freshman Joey Grillo (Sound Beach, N.Y.) had two hits on the day for the Purple Knights, and sophomore Vincent DeRubeis (Trumbull, Conn.) had Bridgeport's lone, as Tuesday's other run crossed the plate on a wild pitch.

Up next, the UB baseball team will return to East Coast Conference action with a four-game weekend series versus LIU Post which will begin with a home game on Friday afternoon.  Action is slated to begin in Seaside Park at 3:00 p.m.
