Holy Cross senior outfielder Patrick Puentes, of East Greenbush, N.Y., went 5-for-8 with three runs scored and four RBIs to help lead the Crusaders to a series sweep of Bucknell in the semifinal round of the Patriot League Baseball Tournament May 11 at Fitton Field.

Holy Cross won the first contest, 9-6, and claimed the victory in game two, 3-0. Sophomore pitcher Donny Murray, of Walpole, Mass., tossed 7.1 scoreless innings in the second game, picking up his seventh win of the season.

Holy Cross improves to 28-23 overall, while the Bison conclude their season at 16-33. The No. 1 seeded Crusaders are set to take on No. 3 Army next weekend in the Patriot League Tournament championship series at Fitton Field. The Black Knights won both of their games versus third-seeded Navy on Saturday afternoon.

Holy Cross will host the Patriot League Championship Series on Sunday, May 19 and Monday, May 20 (if necessary).  It is a best two-of-three series with games one and two taking place on Sunday beginning at 1 pm.
