  • BOCA RATON, FL - Florida Atlantic University picked up its fourth consecutive win with a 10-6 win over Rutgers Tuesday night at FAU Stadium. FAU scored 10 runs on 12 hits as it improves to 13-5 on the year. The Scarlet Knights even their record at 6-6.

    Brandon Kloess made his first career start for FAU and improved to 2-0 on the year after working five innings and not allowing an earned run. The sophomore struck out four and gave up four hits.

    But it was FAU's offense that was most impressive after scoring seven runs in the first inning. The first six batters reached base on three hits, two walks and an error. First baseman Brian Lipman picked up one of those hits and added two RBI for a team-leading 13 this year with a single to centerfield. Making his first start of the season, catcher Robert Yodice added three RBI of his own with a home run to rightfield.

    Florida Atlantic added additional runs in the second, third and fourth innings to post the second biggest offensive output of the season. Mike McBryde led the way with a three-for-four performance at the plate with two doubles and an RBI.

    The Scarlet Knight offense picked up two runs in the second, eighth and ninth innings. A two-out FAU error was followed by a Cory Rodriguez base hit and a two-run Ryan Hill double in the second as RU picked up two unearned runs off of Kloess.

    In the eighth, singles by Rich Canuso and Johnny Defendis put runners on the corners for a sacrifice fly by pinch hitter Vic Cegles. Frank Meade then picked up an RBI with RU's second double of the night.

    Defendis and designated hitter Ryan Hill both finished with two hits and two RBI for the Scarlet Knights.

    Tom Malafronte took the loss for RU as he gave up seven runs on two walks and five hits in 2/3 of an inning. He falls to 0-2 on the year.
