Can USF keep the streak going?

The Bulls, 7-1, have won 6 in a row as they host Toledo for 3-games (Friday and Saturday at 6:30 PM followed by a 1 PM on Sunday). Toledo is 1-7 entering this weekend series. 

USF is batting .273 as a team entering this game. The pitching staff has a 1.88 ERA and are holding opponents to a .165 average. USF is being led by Coco Montes, who was named AAC player of the week and is batting .400 with 2 home runs and has driven in 6 runs on the year. USF is cranking right now and will need to keep it going against a Toledo squad that will be looking to bounce back.

Toledo is batting .198 as a team and the pitching staff has an ERA of 5.59 (allowing a .279 average against him). Here are some of the top hitters to watch out for on the Toledo side.

Dalton Bollinger – Junior – 6’3″ 215 lbs. – C/1B – .333 average, 1 double, 2 triples, 1 home run, 6 RBIs, and has scored 2 runs on the year.

Here is their leaders in the pitching staff:
