USF baseball is run ruled in 12 to 2 loss to Rutgers

Posted: May 11, 2014 in Baseball

The Bulls lost 12 to 2 to Rutgers, completing the sweep for the Knights. USF now stands at 25-26 (10-14), the first time all year they are under .500. The game was called in the 7th inning after Rutgers added two runs to put the 10 run rule affect into play.

The rule, rarely used, is for conference games on getaway days. I had honestly never heard of this, but its a real thing.

Rutgers gets the 10-run rule as USF falls 12-2 in seven innings. Run rule in effect only on getaway day during conference play

Tommy Peterson struggled big time and got just one out, allowing 4 hits and 4 runs in the first inning. Brandon Lawson went 3.2 innings, allowing 2 hits, 3 runs, 2 walks and struck out 2 batters. Josh Walker replaced him, working 1.1 innings, allowing 3 hits, 3 runs, 1 walk and struck out 2 batters. Brandon Murray got two outs. In the 7th inning, Daniel Portales for the first time all year, went to the mound in the 7th, allowing 2 runs.

USF will now head to Gainesville to face the 8th ranked Gators on Tuesday night at 6 PM. This could get ugly if they aren’t careful.
