Saint Louis Baseball and more!!

Musselman Home Run Delivers A-10 Title
  • Saint Louis claimed its first conference championship and NCAA Tournament berth since 1966 with a 7-0 victory over St. Bonaventure this afternoon in the final game of the Atlantic 10 Baseball Tournament. In a mirror image of yesterday's meeting between the two teams in which all the runs came early, the Billikens (32-27) used a rare burst of power to score all seven runs in the top of the ninth. Bill Musselman provided the heroics with a three-run home run that hit the fair pole and the top of the wall in the left field, plating the first runs of the day. The offense supported the eight-inning effort of junior Ryan Bird, who scattered five hits but did not give up a run in collecting his eighth win of the season.

715: Bonds Passes Ruth

  • With one memorable swing, Barry Bonds made it 715, cranking a two-run shot Sunday against the Rockies in San Francisco. Bonds trails Hank Aaron on the all-time home run list.
