“David is a pleasure to coach. He missed our entire season last year due to injury and his best baseball is in front of him. We needed a win and David showed up and delivered. And, have you seen his mustache?” – Head Coach Bill Barrale

Rosas was clutch in the second game of the doubleheader at Bowdoin last Saturday. He went 3-5 on the afternoon, notching two RBIs and one run scored. Rosas smashed an RBI double down the right field line in the top of the sixth inning to knot the game at four. The second RBI came in the top of the tenth inning when Rosas drove in the game-winning run with a single, ending the Eph’s six-game losing streak as they topped the Polar Bears by a score of 7-6.
