FAU 10,Rutgers 6 (F)
Sweeping the Camels would be a beautiful thing for the Owls to come home the following weekend to host the Hatters. However, I believe Campbell is a dangerous club and can't be taken lightly. The Camels may be 0-3 in conference play, but that sweep was against UCF. Campbell is a formidable opponent with 3 players hitting over .400 (Priest .478, Holt .419 and Phillips .412). Those three combine for 14 HR and 56 RBI. The team batting avg. is .331 and they have a 10-1 home record. All the above should be enough to get ones attention. I believe this series will come down to pitching, where I give FAU the edge. If our starters are on their respective games and don't make stupid mistakes, we will prevail. I still contend that Storey needs to be in the starting rotation. His talent and ability to dominate the batter is too great to relegate him to the closer role exclusively. Perhaps this will be the series to make that move.
