The scoring started early for the Pirates. Freshman Matt Toke went from first base to home on a simple ground ball to third base, which ended up being a throwing error so wild that it allowed a run to score. Rutgers did not allow this run to go...

Schank, Butler quiet Seton Hall bats in Big East opener

Coming into Friday afternoon’s Big East opener against Butler, the Pirates (14-13, 0-1) were swinging some hot bats and riding high off a nine-run outburst in their last game against Wagner. However, Butler starter Jeff Schank had something to say about that as his performance led the Bulldogs (20-8, 1-0) to a 6-2 victory. The lefty entered the day with a 1.12 ERA and turned in another strong performance, allowing only one run over...

He was pulled in the fifth inning after 96 pitches and two earned...

Bullpen’s consistency key to Pirates’ pitching success

Bullpens often get overlooked, but Seton Hall’s has been a key to the Pirates’ success. Coming into the year, most expected the starting trio of Shane McCarthy, Zach Prendergast and Cullen Dana to carry the Pirates’ pitching staff. While they have improved as of late, it has been the bullpen that has really shined thus far. In comparison to the 2016 season, the three starters’ combined ERA has risen from 3.00 to 4.43 while the...
