After a 5-4 victory against the North Carolina A&T Aggies, the Phoenix head coach earned the 700th win of his career on Wednesday.
An Elon alumnus himself, Mike Kennedy has led the program through over 1,000 games of baseball and has seen the program rise from the ashes before the Phoenix became part of the Colonial Athletic Association.
On Wednesday, Elon won its fifth consecutive game. The Phoenix gained a 2-0 lead quick in the first and third innings by singles caused by Joe Satterfield and Ryne Ogren. The game remained the same until the eighth, when the Phoenix allowed four walks and an error. The Phoenix weren't going down that easy. In response, three straight singles came about from Garrett Stonehouse, Ogren and Liam O'Regan to make it a 4-3 game. The game concluded with Elon's Jared Wetherbee striking out Ryne Stanley.
This is their longest win streak of the year.
To see the Phoenix back in action, the Phoenix open up against the Hartford Hawks at home at 6 p.m., as the team welcomes back alumni in Elon's annual Alumni weekend.
