Baseball back at .500 with 2nd win at Seton Hall



After a 1-5 start, USF baseball has slowly pulled its away back up to .500, and Saturday's 6-4 win at Seton Hall puts the Bulls at 17-17, with a chance for a sweep and the first winning record of the season on Sunday.


The Bulls (17-17, 7-4 in Big East) had a .500 record at 5-5, and USF has made it back without winning more than two in a row since that point. They'll have a chance for their first Big East sweep of 2011 on Sunday afternoon.

USF got its runs Saturday by all sorts of means -- a bases-loaded walk, a balk, an RBI groundout -- and then Sam Mende and Alex Mendez had RBIs as part of a five-run seventh inning. The bullpen pitched well again, allowing just one hit in 3.1 innings, with Jimmy Moran getting his third win in relief and Kevin Quackenbush earning his eighth save with two scoreless innings.

Here's the full story from USF's official site.
