Stephen Hunt and Sam Mende laced RBI singles into the Bright House Field outfield, and USF picked up a third run on Pittsburgh second baseman Chris Sedon’s second error of the game to extend the Bulls’ lead to 7-2 in the last first round game of the Big East tournament.

Hunt has only one scored RBI but assisted in driving in two runs in the bottom of the third. It was ruled an error on Sedon.

If USF starter Randy Fontanez can continue his trend in the last three innings, USF will be well on its way into Thursday morning’s winner’s bracket game against sixth-seeded UConn.
