Then Saturday the Scarlet Knights faced one of the top pitchers in the country — lefthander Sean Newcomb, projected as a top-15 draft pick — and got the better of him to win, 4-1, in front of nearly 50 MLB scouts behind a strong outing from freshman righthander Gaby Rosa.

Going 1-2 against the top pitching team in the country, which also just so happens to be the No. 2 team in the most recent RPI, does not sting the Rutgers baseball team that badly.

While the Scarlet Knights have procured the opportunity to start and pitch the multitude of freshman, or first-year pitchers, to gain valuable experience on the mound, they also have to face the fact that managing their pitching staff becomes more difficult.
