Fran Kinsey - Baseball

Over the past week, sophomore outfielder Fran Kinsey batted .533 (8-for-15) and helped the Iona baseball program climb the MAAC standings courtesy of a road three-game sweep in Albany.

On Wednesday, Apr. 26, the Iona College baseball program dropped a tough 8-4 contest against Albany.  In the loss, Kinsey had two hits, one run scored, and two walks drawn from the leadoff spot.

Iona's dynamic outfielder really kicked things off off over the weekend at Siena.  In game one of a doubleheader on Saturday, Apr. 29, the second-year player collected five hits in six at-bats, scoring three runs and driving in one of his own.  THe Maroon & Gold took advantage of Kinsey's performance, earning a 12-6 game one win.

Come game two in another Iona victory, Kinsey went 1-for-3, driving in three runs while crossing the plate once himself.  He had two RBI in the Gaels' four-run second inning, and later contributed with a sacrafice fly.

In the series finale on Sunday, Apr. 30, Kinsey failed to garner a hit, but still contributed with one ru scored, and two baseb on balls.  Iona won the finale 8-3, earning a crucial MAAC sweep.

 The Gaels travel to Queens, NY on Tuesday, May 2 for a 6 PM contest against St. John's.  This weekend the Canisius College Griffins travel to New Rochelle, NY for a MAAC weekend series.
