The Privateer baseball team got its 2022 season off to a thunderous start, going 3-0 and outscoring its opponents 31-5 at the Andre Dawson Classic in New Orleans.

With all of its games being played at Maestri Field, New Orleans defeated Arkansas-Pine Bluff 9-3, Grambling 12-2, and Alabama State 10-0.  The latter two games were ended early on the run rule.

UNO got heavy contributions from newcomers over the weekend.  Starting pitchers Dylan Porter and Collin Horton combined for 9 1/3 scoreless innings over Saturday's and Sunday's games.  New second baseman Amani Larry and new first baseman (and preseason all-SLC selection) Anthony Herron, Jr. each homered for the Bucs.

The Privateers will get the week off before welcoming the Kansas Jayhawks to Maestri Field for a three-game series next Friday through Sunday.
