    Steve Nyisztor extended his hitting streak to 23 games with a hit in Saturday’s contest

    LOUISVILLE, Ky. (May 1, 2010) – The Rutgers baseball team dropped a 24-6 decision to No. 12 Louisville in Saturday’s series finale at Jim Patterson Stadium in Louisville, Ky.

    The Scarlet Knights (21-20, 10-8 BIG EAST) got doubles from Michael Lang (Dumont, N.J.), Steve Nyisztor (Toms River, N.J.) and Jaren Matthews (Teaneck. N.J.) and a single from Jayson Hernandez (Belmar, N.J.) to produce three runs in the first inning and jump out to the early lead. 

    Louisville (36-7, 14-4 BIG EAST), however, responded with 10 runs in the bottom half of the first, highlighted by a three-run home run and a grand slam from Andrew Clark.

    The Cardinals got three more runs in the second, two in the third, one in the fourth and eight in the fifth to open a 24-3 advantage.

    Rutgers scored the last three runs of the contest with a run in the seventh and a two-run home run from junior Pat Biserta (Pt. Pleasant, N.J.) in the ninth to make it 24-6.

    The two-run blast was Biserta’s team-leading 16th of the season. He ranks second in school history in single-season home runs, six shy of Todd Frazier’s school-record 22-home run total set in 2007. He now has 23 career blasts which ties him for eighth place on the Rutgers career home run chart with Ryan Hill (2005-07) and current Scarlet Knight Director of Baseball Operations Glen Gardner (1986-88).

    Nyisztor extended his hitting streak to 23 games with a hit in Saturday’s contest. His hitting streak is among the top-eight longest in the nation. 

    Rutgers returns home where the Scarlet Knights will host Temple next Wednesday, May 5, at 1 p.m.
