The Butler baseball team is over the .500 mark after sweeping Atlantic 10 opponent Dayton last weekend. Butler (17-15) sits at 7-5 in conference play, a game and a half behind Rhode Island for the sixth and final spot of the A-10 tournament.

The Bulldogs beat the Flyers (7-24, 2-10) 8-4 Friday, as juniors Marcos Calderon and Marco Caponi each drove in two runs.

The Bulldogs took game two 9-4 Saturday.

In Sunday’s finale, Butler completed the sweep with a 7-2 win. Senior Jack Dillon and freshman Mike Kseniak each drove in two runs while senior Jimmy Risi recorded two doubles.

Butler returns to Indiana this week, playing two games against the Hoosiers in Bloomington Friday and Saturday. Indiana (26-7, 8-4) visits Butler on Sunday.
