West Virginia, coming off a 20-run performance, continued its offensive momentum, snagging an early run off of USF starter Derrick Stultz to give the Mountaineers a 1-0 lead entering the second inning.

Stultz retired two then walked and pegged the next batters. WVU’s Dan Dibartolomeo gave the Mountaineers the lead with a bouncer up the middle that just went past Peter Brotons’ glove at second.

Shaky start for Stultz, who was hit hard on several occasions this inning.
