ROME, Ga. – Barry University’s baseball team defeated Shorter  Sunday afternoon, 5-2, in a game halted by rain in the sixth inning.

Barry (6-0) is off to one of its best starts in program history after completing the three game sweep of the Hawks and winning for the sixth consecutive game.

Joeanthony Rivera took the mound for the Buccaneers on a cold, rainy afternoon in Georgia but managed to maintain a grip of the ball and the game in route to the five-inning victory.

Tyler Kellmann led the Buccaneer offense going 1-for-2 with 2 RBI. Adrian English extend his hit-streak to six straight with an RBI single through the right side in the third inning.

The Hawks (0-7) struggled to score against Buccaneer pitchers throughout the series as they were limited to four runs throughout the three-game set.

Barry heads back to Miami Shores where they’ll host Palm Beach Atlantic on Tuesday evening.

First pitch is scheduled for 6:00 p.m. with video broadcast and live-stats available through the Barry University athletics website, GOBARRYBUCS.COM.
