The Bulls, 21-26 (6-12), fell 4 to 0 to Tulane today as the Green Wave completed the sweep. Its’s the first time all year the Bulls have been swept in a 3-game series. 

In the second inning, Tulane jumped out to a 3 to 0 early on Joe Cavallaro. Cavallaro was able to hang in there for 6 innings before the Bulls handed the ball over to Tommy Eveld. In the 7th, Tulane made it 4 to 0. The Green Wave would not do anymore damage after that, but the USF offense that had managed just 5 runs in the first two combined games, could not get anything going. The team mustered just 5 total hits (Kevin Merrell, Luke Borders, Tyler Dietrich, Chris Chatfield and Joe Genord were all 1 for 4 in the game). They just had nothing going in this game.

Joe Callavaro (4-3) went 6 innings, allowing 6 hits, 3 runs, 2 walks, and struck out 7 batters. He didn’t throw well, but the offense just could not get going to help support him. Tommy Eveld went the final 3 innings, allowing 2 hits, 1 run, 1 walk, and struck out 7 batters total. The staff didn’t do a bad job out there, the offense just could not get anything going to answer back in the game.

The Bulls will hit the road to take on Florida on Tuesday night at 7 PM. The young Bulls will need to learn from this series and bounce back on the road. There are still a lot of games to go so they can’t begin to fall apart now. Still plenty to play for out there.
