Orange play poorly on offense and defense in rough weekend against Bulls.

Syracuse softball (24-8, 3-3) seemed to be off to a promising start before this past weekend. After traveling south to play South Florida (22-15, 4-0) and getting swept by the Bulls, expectations are a bit tempered. The weekend lacked any offense from the Orange along with porous defense.

Syracuse won its opening game 23-0, then rode that winning wave throughout the weekend as they swept Rutgers and improved to 24-5 overall.

Following another successful weekend, Syracuse Softball is approaching an eight game winning streak which would tie for the longest streak in school history. SU (24-5, 3-0) swept Rutgers this past weekend to extend its winning ways.

Despite playing on the Scarlet Knight’s home turf, it was the Orange who dominated, as they demolished Rutgers, 23-0, in the opening game. Syracuse’s offense got off to a fast start by scoring four in the first inning and it never looked back.

The Orange got off to its best start since 1999 with a win over USF.

Doug Marrone was in tears.

Syracuse’s head coach could not fight his emotions in his address to the media after the Orange won its Big East opener 13-9 at South Florida. It was a milestone win for Marrone, the players and the SU program.
