Rutgers head baseball coach Fred Hill was ambitious in wanting
the Scarlet Knights to win the Big East. The Knights received a
test immediately against No. 13 Miami to open the season. A
three-game Hurricanes sweep showed the Knights are still a work in
progress. A 9-7 Rutgers loss Sunday clinched the Miami sweep at
Alex Rodriguez Park, but it was also the first solid showing for
the Knights offense. Rutgers outhit Miami, 12-11.

Junior lefthander Rob Corsi recorded a 1.58 ERA?last season as a
reliever. He takes on a starter’s role in 2012 for the Knights.
It's only fitting that Rob Corsi returns to familiar Pittsburgh today when the Rutgers baseball team kicks off a three-game set with Pitt. For the sophomore reliever, being thrown into any situation is the name of the game, which Corsi learned in the offseason when he transitioned from the starting rotation to the bullpen.
Sophomore reliever Rob Corsi returns to Pittsburgh, where he played his freshman season before Duquesne cut its program. The Oceanport,'N.J., native returned home to play for the Scarlet Knights, who face Pitt this weekend in a Big East series.
