Baseball wins finale, gets Pitt on Tuesday

Lelo Prado's USF baseball team kept St. John's from sole possession of a Big East regular-season championship, knocking off the Red Storm on Saturday with a 5-2 win.

With that, the Bulls have the fifth seed in this week's Big East championships in Brooklyn, with a first-round matchup Tuesday at 5 against fourth-seeded Pittsburgh. It's the highest seed the Bulls have had in a conference tournament since they finished third in Conference USA in 2001. USF took two of three games from Pittsburgh in Tampa in March.

As a result of its loss to USF on Saturday, St. John's had to settle for a share of the league regular-season crown, finishing with the same conference record as Rutgers.
