Princeton had just a hit through seven innings against Seton Hall but took a liking to the Pirates bullpen in staging a rally that made it interesting Wednesday afternoon at Clarke Field.

The 13-6 loss drops Princeton to 7-12 on the season as the team prepares to head back into Ivy League play Saturday at Brown. Seton Hall, which entered the week ranked No. 22 in the nation by Collegiate Baseball, improved to 20-5.

Seton Hall scored twice in the first inning on a walk, two singles and a throwing error before Princeton got an out, and for most of the afternoon, that was enough for the Pirates, who tacked on five more over the first eight innings against Princeton's bullpen to lead 7-0.

Seton Hall pitcher Anthony Pacillo (2-0) was tough to solve for Princeton, which saw nine straight and 12 straight batters go down against Pacillo around the Tigers' only two baserunners through Pacillo's seven innings. Alec Keller spoiled the perfection bid with a leadoff walk in the fourth and Billy Arendt followed with a single, but that was all the Tigers got over the first seven.

But the Pirates bullpen was a different story. Princeton saw three Seton Hall pitchers in the eighth inning and tagged them for six runs on seven hits and a walk, sending 11 batters to the plate. By the time it was over, Princeton had pulled within 7-6. Seton Hall's Steven Lombardi settled things down by giving up just a hit and a walk in getting two of the three outs in the eighth.

After getting the two runs early against Princeton starter Luke Strieber, Seton Hall tacked on five runs against the first two Princeton relievers. Chris Bodurian gave up a pair of runs on four hits and a walk over the middle three innings and Tyler Foote gave up three runs on five hits and two walks in an inning and a third. A.J. Goetz, who pitched on either side of Princeton's big eighth inning, didn't allow a hit but struggled with the strike zone, walking seven in an inning and a third to let Seton Hall open it back up in the ninth with six runs.

Princeton starter Luke Streiber (0-3) had a nice outing after the early rough start, allowing two hits and two walks with just one of the two runs earned in his three innings. Eight Tigers split the team's eight hits.
