Big East Baseball Showdown

Not a good senior day Saturday, the Baseball Cards getting shellacked 13-5 by Rutgers. Probably would have won with seniors instead of freshmen on the mound. But Dan McDonnell was prepping for the future. Saving those arms for more important games, for sure.

The future arrives early Tuesday with the Cards taking on Seton Hall in the first game of the Big East Tournament in Clearwater, Fla. Expect Zack Pitts or Justin Marks to get things going again.
