After a 3-3 start, Holy Cross baseball has won seven straight games.
The Crusaders (10-3) captured a big victory last Friday at home when they knocked off the St. Paul Falcons by a 7-5 score. St. Paul scored two runs in the top of the sixth inning to tie a back-and-forth game at 5-5, then Holy Cross tallied two runs for the 7-5 lead.
Adam Razza had two hits, a run batted in and two runs scored. Matt Bonvicini had two hits, a run batted in and a run scored while D.J. Mangini had two hits and a run scored. Tim Zupkus added a two-run triple. After Holy Cross took the 7-5 lead, Fran Phelan retired all three St. Paul batters he faced in the seventh.
Bonvicini was the Waterbury Republican-American's Male Athlete of the Week last week after monster performances against Seymour, Crosby and Wilby. During that week, he was a solo homer short of the home run cycle (he had a two-run homer, three-run homer and a grand slam).
The Crusaders, led by head coach Mike Phelan, own wins over Seymour, Crosby, Wilby, Woodland, Gilbert, Torrington and St. Paul during the streak. Holy Cross is scheduled to play at Derby today at 3:45, weather permitting. A busy week continues tomorrow and Friday at home against Sacred Heart and Wilby.
