Rutgers baseball season ends with rainout

Team finishes .500 for the first time since 2014.

West Virginia v Rutgers

When it rains, it pours. The Rutgers baseball season came to an end with a rainout on Saturday. With a loss Friday, the Scarlet Knights of the diamond completed the season with an even 25-25 record for the campaign. It marks the first time they finished with a .500 winning percentage since 2014, before they joined the Big Ten.

Thursday: Minnesota 4, Rutgers 0

Starter John O’Reilly was backed by only four hits from RU batsmen.

Friday: Minnesota 5, Rutgers 3

On Senior Day, Rutgers trailed 5-1, the comeback highlighted by Kyle Walker’s two-run homer was not enough. Serafino Brito, the team’s closer got the start and logged six innings, allowing just two runs. Jawuan Harris failed to steal a base and finishes the season second all-time at Rutgers in that category.
