USF baseball falls 10 to 0 to Rutgers in 7 innings

Posted: May 21, 2014 in Baseball

The Bulls could only muster 2 hits as they fell 10 to 0 to Rutgers in 7 innings (tournament rules). The loss drops USF to 26-30 on the year and puts any hope of a tournament miracle on life-support.

USF was down 1 to 0 in the 1st inning, but it would get a lot worse after that for the Bulls. Rutgers would add 8 more in the 3rd inning as they chased Casey Mulholland in his shortest outing of the season. Rutgers would add another in the 5th to make it 10 to 0. The offense, which had struggled all year long, had just 2 hits and the defense, which had been strong throughout the year, had 3 errors in the game.

Casey Mulholland went just 2.1 innings, allowing 7 runs (6 earned), 7 hits, 3 walks and struck out 2 batters. Lawrence Pardo worked 1.2 innings, allowing 5 hits, 2 runs, and struck out 3 batters in relief. Brandon Lawson worked 1 inning, allowing 2 hits, 1 run, and struck out 2 batters. Janick Serrallonga worked the final inning, allowing just 1 hit.

It was ugly, simply ugly. Lawson pitched well and so did Serrallonga but aside from that, there isn’t much positive to take away from this game. The Bulls will face Louisville, the number one seed, on Friday at 3 PM. Jimmy Herget will get the start in that game.
