Princeton catcher Tyler Servais tags out junior rightfielder Steve Zavala on Tuesday. The Knights won on a walk-off home run from sophomore Nick Favatella, but Columbia beat the Knights in walk-off fashion yesterday in the 10th inning of the Lions’ 7-6 win. Rutgers committed three errors in the loss.
Some people discredit baseball players’ athletic ability. During moments of the Rutgers baseball team’s game against Princeton yesterday, both teams helped those doubters’ cases. Much of the Scarlet Knights’ and Tigers’ exertion came from walking to first base, trotting to the next because of a walk and swinging occasionally before the umpire called, “Ball four.” That was the result of 23 walks allowed.
Sophomore second baseman Nick Favatella clinched the Knights’ 12-11 victory against Princeton yesterday with a home run, the second of the game for Rutgers. Favatella’s four home runs this season place him second on the team.
Rutgers head baseball coach Fred Hill emphasizes walks in his coaching philosophy, calling them “freebies.” The Scarlet Knights experienced the worst of both, walking Georgetown and allowing Hoyas hits in last weekend’s series in which the Knights took one of three games in Bethesda, Md. The series culminated in a 9-4 Rutgers win Sunday, when the Knights did not walk a single batter.
Rutgers baseball third baseman Pat Kivlehan yesterday earned a spot on the Big East Weekly Honor Roll. The senior earned the recognition for a second straight week, after he was named Big East Player of the Week. Kivlehan recorded seven hits, six runs, three home runs and 11 RBI last week in four games.
Sophomore centerfielder Brian O’Grady tripled Sunday in?Game 3 against Georgetown, scoring a pair of Knights baserunners.
Head coach Fred Hill was disappointed by the Knights pitchers’ high walk totals.
Senior pitcher Ryan Fasano allowed three earned runs in eight innings Sunday against Georgetown. The righty did not allow a single walk in the 9-4 victory. He pitched for junior lefthander Rob Corsi, who missed the start because of an elbow injury.
Senior infielder Pat Kivlehan earned league weekly honors a week after conference player of the week recognition.
Bill Hoermann and Pat Kivlehan would likely not fit in with the Wagner baseball team as it is constructed. Considering the Seahawks’ small-ball approach, the Rutgers baseball team is a better match for the corner infielders. Wagner would have liked Hoermann and Kivlehan’s power on its side yesterday in the Scarlet Knights’ 13-8 win against the Seahawks at Bainton Field.
Senior third baseman Pat Kivlehan hit his third home run of the season yesterday against Wagner and added four RBI in the 13-8 victory.
During his 12 seasons as head coach of the Wagner baseball team, Joe Litterio really got to know the Seahawks. But Litterio will watch it today from the opposite dugout at Bainton Field in his first year as the Scarlet Knights’ assistant coach. Litterio might be the indirect key to Wagner’s chance of victory. “The fact that I’m over here — that’s the most dangerous thing,” Litterio said.
Senior pitcher Ryan Fasano shut out Rider on March 21 in his last start, but Fred Hill, the Knights’ head coach, will limit the righthander to three innings against Wagner.
Rutgers baseball third baseman Pat Kivlehan was named the Big East Player of the Week. The conference announced it yesterday after a week in which Kivlehan batted .692 with two home runs and seven RBI. He reached base in 12 of his 15 plate appearances in last weekend’s Seton Hall series.
The rain picked up at Seton Hall, and junior pitcher Jerry Elsing of the Rutgers baseball team had the bases loaded in the bottom of the eighth inning. As up and down as relief pitchers are, one bad pitch could not have been more consequential for the Scarlet Knights. It could have meant blowing an 8-6 lead, not getting the chance to bat in the ninth inning because of weather and losing the series to the in-state rival Pirates.
Junior Jeff Melillo served as designated hitter during Friday’s second game of the series, starting the other two at catcher.
Senior third baseman Pat Kivlehan reached base in all five of his at-bats in Saturday’s 9-6 win against Seton Hall. Kivlehan batted in two runs to help the Knights win the rubber game of the series. Rutgers is now 2-1 in conference play.
When it comes to hitting, base running, pitching and defense, the Rutgers baseball team peaked at the right time in out-of-conference play, according to head coach Fred Hill. Now the Scarlet Knights want to carry that over into the Big East. The Knights (9-9) enter a series with Seton Hall today for their first three games against a Big East opponent. The Pirates’ 9-10 record is on par with that of the Knights, but Seton Hall lacks Rutgers’ experience against ranked opponents.
Sophomore Nick Favatella hit a home run against Rider.
Pat Kivlehan could only stop by for part of the Rutgers football team’s Pro Day. He had to leave early to play for his new team. With the ding of a bat in the bottom of the fifth inning, the senior third baseman hit the first home run of his Rutgers baseball career for three RBI. He sat back down to a facetiously silent Scarlet Knights dugout. He said it was one of the best feelings of his multi-sport career.
