Senior third baseman D.J.'Anderson led the Scarlet Knights from
the plate yesterday, when his 3-for-4, four-RBI performance proved
all for naught in a 14-12 loss. Anderson drove in a run in the
ninth, but his teammates could not sustain the rally.
Sophomore starting pitcher Tyler Gebler pitched solidly in the
Knights' 4-0 loss to host Pittsburgh in Game 1 of the team's
three-game series. Gebler allowed two runs in the second inning,
but did not give up another hit until the sixth.
Junior Chris Mattes, right, won 12 of 16 faceoffs for the
Knights on Saturday against No. 4 Syracuse, but Rutgers could not
capitalize on his efforts. Mattes owns the highest faceoff winning
percentage in the nation.
Junior attack Will'Mangan accounted for 50 percent of the
Knights' scoring output with his goal Saturday against No. 4
Syracuse. Mangan and senior attack Kory Kelly scored Rutgers' only
two goals against the Orange in Connecticut.
