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.

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.

Measuring a pitcher’s success by wins and losses is not as common as it used to be. The numbers could not be less applicable for pitcher Ryan Fasano of the Rutgers baseball team. The senior righthander has stepped up to take junior pitcher Tyler Gebler’s spot in the rotation and done so with a 4.50 ERA. But credit two losses in his 0-3 record to the Knights’ bats. Fasano has been on in his past two starts. The hitting has not.

Senior righthander Ryan Fasano pitched seven innings Friday in a loss to Stetson.
By scheduling tough teams, Rutgers head baseball coach Fred Hill tested the Scarlet Knights. Now the Knights leave spring break a revitalized squad with five wins in eight games.

Tyler Gebler watched No. 9 Georgia Tech sweep the Rutgers baseball team last weekend in a series of sporadic production from his fellow pitchers. But the junior righthander saw it all from his computer. Gebler stayed home from Atlanta because of arm tightness — he missed two of the Scarlet Knights’ three series for that reason — but Gebler is tired of missing time. In the upcoming series that begins tomorrow at Florida Atlantic, Gebler will be a relief pitcher.

Jeff Melillo hit eighth a season ago. He hit below the Mendoza line, slugged barely above it and had more strikeouts than hits. Now the junior catcher hits cleanup. Melillo has played to his lineup position. He sports a .400 on-base percentage and a .607 slugging percentage. The latter leads the Rutgers baseball team. But before Melillo put it together on the field, head coach Fred Hill gambled with the lineup by moving him from the back of the lineup to the fourth spot.
Junior catcher Jeff Melillo leads the Knights in RBI and slugging after moving from the eighth spot last year to the four hole.
In its opening series of the season, the Rutgers baseball team put together dominant pitching and hitting against a baseball powerhouse. But the Scarlet Knights never did both in the same game. The Knights traveled to Old Dominion last weekend, and in a three-game sweep, Rutgers executed those individualized parts in a team effort. “Getting to 3-3 is very important,” said head coach Fred Hill. “If I were a player, I’d be thinking, ‘We’re back on the right track.’”
