It was not the start to the season that the Rutgers baseball team had anticipated. It was not anywhere near close to what it thought it would accomplish in its opening weekend. For starters, the Scarlet Knights (0-4) were outhit, 40-25, and outscored, 30-11, in their opening series against Florida International in Miami this past weekend.
Acting head coach Joe Litterio believes the scores do not reflect how well the Knights swung the bat this past weekend. Rutgers has been isolated to indoor training.
Sophomore left hander Howie Brey made his debut as the ace of the weekend rotation last Friday against FIU. Brey worked through five innings, allowing two earned runs on only one hit, collecting four strikeouts.
Losing all four games, and only scoring a combined 11 runs, was not exactly the start the Rutgers baseball team was looking for in its opening weekend at Florida International. Allowing 30 runs to the Panthers in the four-game series did not help the cause. But positives could be taken from the weekend.
With inches of snow still accumulated on the ground, it is hard to imagine Rutgers baseball season begins on Friday. The Scarlet Knights will travel Feb. 14 to warmer weather to face Florida International in Miami for three days to start their season. While there is no question the Knights will spend their Valentine’s Day weekend together as a team, one Knight’s attendance is uncertain.
Senior shortstop Pat Sweeney is one of the 14 returning letterwinners for the Knights. He returns after playing through an injury last season.
Senior shortstop Pat Sweeney says Rutgers never missed a beat with interim head coach Joe Litterio taking over last fall.
Rutgers head baseball coach Fred Hill will take a leave of absence because of a medical issue. It is uncertain when or if the 79-year-old, who just completed his 30th season with the Scarlet Knights, will return. Assistant coach Joe Litterio will serve as acting coach.
After the Rutgers baseball team’s 4-2 victory against Connecticut yesterday, the team made its way to the practice field, where chairs and electric razors were waiting. It was all a part of the Scarlet Knights support for the Vs. Cancer Foundation, as the Knights shaved off all of their hair for charity.
Senior lefthander Rob Corsi made his second straight start yesterday against Connecticut as senior lefthander Tyler Gebler continues to deal with a sore shoulder. But that did not stop the Toms River, N.J., native from making an appearance in the game.
Thanks to timely hitting and solid pitching performances, the Rutgers baseball team was able to avoid a home series loss to Connecticut yesterday with a 3-2 come-from-behind victory.
Senior first baseman Charlie Law drove in one run in Rutgers’ 4-2 victory yesterday against Connecticut. Rutgers clinched the series in the win, as the Knights retired nine straight batters to end the game.
Freshman third baseman Matt Tietz hit 0-for-2 in yesterday’s 4-2 victory against Connecticut, but drove in the go ahead run in the sixth inning on a sacrafice fly. Tietz had one of three RBI for Rutgers in the sixth inning in which the Knights collected four hits.
Head coach Fred Hill said Sunday he will consider whether to keep righthander Rob Corsi, above, in the rotation.
When Delaware beat the Rutgers baseball team Wednesday, it marked the Scarlet Knights’ fifth straight loss that began last Friday against Oklahoma St. Right now is not the best time for a losing streak, and senior catcher Jeff Melillo knows how imperative the next six conference games are for the Knights.
Double plays are usually what Rutgers baseball head coach Fred Hill wants from his defense. What he does not expect is two runs to cross the plate because of them. Delaware managed to do just that in the second and fourth innings, respectively, an effort that gave the Blue Hens a 4-2 win against the Scarlet Knights (20-24, 8-7).
The Rutgers baseball team’s first four batters put together a combined two hits in 13 at bats in yesterday’s offensive struggle against Delaware. Senior first baseman Charlie Law recorded only one hit in the cleanup spot and missed an early RBI opportunity in the first inning when he flew out to right field to end the inning with junior second baseman Nick Favatella standing on third.
Junior righthander Slater McCue allowed two runs on three hits in 4.1 innings of work, but Rutgers was unable to give run support in a 4-2 loss yesterday to Delaware. The Knights managed just five hits in the game.
Senior lefthander Rob Corsi will step into the weekend rotation for Tyler Gebler as he continues to recover from injury.
