MIAMI Shores, Fla.— The Barry University baseball team moved to 5-5 on the season with an 8-7 win over the Palm Beach Atlantic Sailfish on Tuesday night.
 
The Bucs struck first in the first inning when Nick Shaw reached first on a walk. He reached third on a Chris Leon double and home when the pitcher, Martin Suarez, balked.
 
PBA scored twice in the second inning to take a 2-1 lead, but the Bucs tied it up, 2-2, in the bottom of the second on a Drew Dwelly home run.
 
In the fifth Yas Gutierrez scored off a Manny Pedrozo sacrifice fly to give the Bucs a 3-2 lead.
 
The Sailfish (1-8) scored five runs in the seventh inning to take a 7-4 lead.
 
Yet the Bucs hung in it scoring four of their own runs in the bottom of the seventh to take an 8-7 lead. Gutierrez, Matt Petty, Julio Ramos and Dwelly scored off of four hits and two errors.
 
Neither team would do much in the eighth, and the Bucs hung on to win 8-7. Tyler King earned the win for the Buccaneers; he is 1-0 on the season. Scott Sexton picked up his fifth save of the season.
