The USF Bulls will face the St. John's Red Storm for the 2012 Big East Baseball Championship on Sunday, after winning twice on Saturday to advance to the Championship game. The Bulls defeated the UConn Huskies in both Saturday games.
The Bulls entered the tournament as the fourth seed, and will face number two seed St. John's, who are playing in their third straight conference final. USF lost their first game in the tournament, but were able to bounce back and win the next four. Saturday saw dominant pitching performances from the Bulls, with a complete game shutout by senior Derrick Stutlz in the first game and Nick Gonazles allowing only one run on four hits through six innings in game two.
St. Johns and USF have met 21 times dating back to 2006, with the Red Storm leading the series 12-9, including taking two of three in the 2012 regular season. The Bulls are capable of surpassing past results when the moment calls for it, though: UConn had a 5-0 in conference tournament play against the Bulls before Saturday.
