A tight game became a rout all too quickly for the St. John's baseball team. After drawing within a run in the eighth, the Red Storm bullpen gave up six runs in the top of the ninth and the Big East's first-place team fell to South Florida, 9-2, Sunday afternoon at Jack Kaiser Stadium in Jamaica.
Still, it was yet another positive weekend. St. John's (39-11, 18-6 Big East) took two of three from USF (26-24, 11-13) and has yet to lose a conference series this season. On Monday, the Red Storm climbed to No. 18 in the Baseball America national poll.
