Seton Hall ace Josh Prevost dominated on the mound and designated hitter Tyler Boyd delivered a three-run triple in the opening inning to propel the Pirates to a series-opening 9-1 victory over the University of Arizona baseball team on Friday night at Hi Corbett Field. Prevost (W, 3-0) carried a perfect game into the fifth and scattered five hits over eight strong innings. He surrendred just a lone run in the fifth inning and otherwise racked up seven strikeouts and did not issue a walk.Seton Hall (5-2) scored its four first-inning runs on five hits. Consecutive one-out singles by Chris Seldon, Kyle Grimm and Sal Ammunziata loaded the bases for Boyd, whose triple to right field effectively was the game-winner. D.J. Ruhlman later drove in Boyd for the fourth run.
Game 2 Review

In the resumption of Saturday’s suspended game, Seton Hall withstood a late rally and knocked off Arizona, 4-2, to capture a series victory at Hi Corbett Field. The teams are set to wrap up the series with the third and final game scheduled for a 3 p.m. start. The Pirates entered the day holding a 1-0 lead after rain suspended Saturday’s game in the middle of the fourth inning. Tyler Boyd, who hit a solo homer in the top of the fourth yesterday, hit a two-out, two-run double in the sixth to push Seton Hall’s lead to 3-0. Arizona trailed 4-1 entering the bottom of the ninth inning, before mounting a rally against closer Conor Krauss. Zach Gibbons walked, Scott Kingery doubled and Kevin Newman walked to load the bases for Trent Gilbert, whose ground out drove in a run and advance the tying run to scoring position. Pinch-hitter Willie Calhoun drew a walk to re-load the bases, before Krauss induced a game-ending groundout by Riley Moore. Reliever Sam Burum earned the victory with two innings of scoreless relief in place of yesterday’s starter Anthony Elia. Arizona starter Cody Hamlin, who threw four innings and gave up one run on Saturday, took the loss. Krause earned his second save of the season.
