Seton Hall Weekly Baseball Update
Seton Hall completed a three-game sweep of the New York Institute of Technology (NYIT) last weekend. The Pirates opened the weekend with an offensive outburst for the ages. Seton Hall erupted for 21 runs on 24 hits in a 21-0 rout. Josh Prevost pitched eight, one-hit innings, while striking out 12 batters for his eighth victory of the season. Dillon Hamlin went 3-for-6 with a career-high five RBIs. Kyle Grimm went 3-for-5 with four runs scored and three RBIs.
The teams played a double-header on Saturday, and game one was significantly closer than the game the night before. Seton Hall needed a walk-off home run with two outs in the bottom of the 10th inning by Sal Annunziata to defeat the Bears, 7-6. Anthony Elia gave up just one earned run in six innings in a no decision. Annunziata and Zack Weigel had three RBIs apiece for Seton Hall. In the nightcap of the doubleheader, Luke Cahill shutout NYIT in six innings and the Pirates went on for a 6-0 victory. Chris Chiaradio and Chris Selden had three hits apiece for Seton Hall, as they improved to 25-7.
This weekend the Pirates will face one of their oldest rivals, Georgetown, for the 98th, 99th, and 100th times this weekend. Seton Hall has dominated the all-time series, winning 74 of the 97 games. The Pirates have won the last four regular season series, including last year’s series at Owen T. Carroll Field. Seton Hall won game one, 9-2, and game two, 11-4, but dropped the finale, 2-0.
Senior Josh Prevost and sophomore Derek Jenkins were named to the BIG EAST Baseball Weekly Honor Roll on April 14. Prevost had a no-hitter through 6.1 innings and settled for allowing just one hit over eight shutout innings in Seton Hall’s 21-0 rout of NYIT. He also struck out a career-high 12 batters. Jenkins batted a team-high .500 with a .529 on-base percentage, six runs scored and six stolen bases in four games. The Pirates move back up to #23 in the Collegiate Baseball Top-30 National Poll and they will look to continue that upward trend this weekend and improve on their 1-2 record in the BIG EAST.
