The Princeton baseball team will travel to Rutgers for a midweek matchup on Tuesday, April 3 in Piscataway, N.J. The Tigers (9-10 overall, 3-1 Ivy League) will face the Scarlet Knights (13-12 overall, 3-3 BIG EAST) at 3:30 p.m. The solo game versus Rutgers opens up a five-game road swing for Princeton.

Last Time Out: The Tigers opened up Ivy League play going 3-1 this past weekend. Princeton went 1-1 versus Dartmouth, posting an 8-0 victory, before falling 8-2 to conclude the series on Saturday. The following day, the Tigers jumped out early on Harvard and cruised to a pair of wins, 4-1, and 12-6.

On Deck: Following its midweek non-conference game at Rutgers, Princeton resumes Ivy action with doubleheaders at Yale (April 7) and Brown (April 8).

At the Plate: Senior Sam Mulroy led the offense with a .500 batting average (7-for-14) over Princeton's season opening Ivy homestand. Mulroy tallied five runs, two RBI, a home run and a walk in four starts. Sophomore Alec Keller followed with six hits, three RBI and a pair of runs and walks in four starts, and freshman Tyler Servais rounded out Princeton's top offensive performers batting .333 (4-for-12), with three RBI, a pair of runs and a home run in three starts.

Seeing K's: Pitcher Matt Bowman was lights out on the mound Sunday versus Harvard, throwing a career-high nine strikeouts over the seven inning contest. He allowed only six hits and one run in the Tigers' 4-1 victory. Bowman (2-2) has pitched a team-leading 29.2 innings this season.

Eight or More: The Tigers have scored eight or more runs in seven games this season. All seven games were Princeton victories. 

Scouting Rutgers: Rutgers snapped a two-game skid with a 9-4 victory over Georgetown on April 1, to go 1-2 versus the Hoyas. The Scarlet Knights are 13-12 overall, 3-3 Big East entering Tuesday's game. Patrick Kivlehan leads the RU offense with a .419 batting average (31-for-74). In 20 games played, Kivlehan has tallied 18 RBI, 15 runs, five home runs, four doubles and a triple. On the rubber, Ryan Fasano has a 3.06 ERA and 2-3 record in eight appearances. He's pitched a team-leading 47 innings, tallying 28 strikeouts and 45 hits against.
