Canisius still searching for answers on the mound

By Colin Richey, Assistant Sports Editor


The Canisius baseball team won their opening game against Liberty, defeating the Flames 4–0 last Friday. However, the Griffs fell 12–1 on Saturday and 10–9 on Sunday, as the pitching from the Griffs became unreliable. 


In the 4–0 win, the Griffs were led by junior Peyton Consigli and graduate student Tom Peltier on the mound, pitching the shutout with just three combined hits surrendered. 


On Saturday, the Griffs used five different pitchers. Redshirt junior Justin Guiliano pitched 3.2 innings, facing 16 at bats and giving up seven hits and seven runs while also inducing seven errors. Senior Levi Abbott and graduate student Andrew Fron each pitched one inning, surrendering three hits each and five combined runs. 


Four new Griffs pitched on Sunday, led by Felix Morin’s five innings, where the sophomore allowed eight hits and three runs on 22 at bats. Junior Aaron Duffy and redshirt junior Ethan Hennessy pitched one inning each, where they surrendered two hits and three runs on nine at-bats. Junior Bryan Aduddle pitched 0.1 innings and surrendered two hits and four runs on three at-bats.


The Griffs have primarily used three pitchers, with Consigli, Morin and Peltier each pitching 18 or more innings this season. They have a combined record of 6–1, all with an earned run average under 4.00. However, no other pitchers have recorded a win, combining for a record of 0–8 across the 12 pitchers who have played at least two innings. 


Based on previous lineup patterns, Consigli and Peltier are projected to play in Friday’s upcoming matchup against George Washington, as the team faces their last weekend of non-conference play before their schedule is filled with MAAC opponents during spring break.
