Rutgers baseball was knocked out of the Big Ten Tournament following a 6-4 loss to Michigan State on Thursday.

Rutgers held a 4-3 lead in the sixth inning before the Spartans stormed back to take the lead on bases loaded walks to Brock Vradenburg and Mitch Jebb.

Jake Marshall took the loss for Rutgers allowing a pair of runs over one-and-a-third innings of work. Drew Conover got the start for RU, allowing three runs, two earned, over four innings of work.

Rutgers got nice efforts at the dish from Andy Alexson and Trevor Cohen, both of whom finished with an RBI on a pair of hits.

Evan Sleight had a hit and RBI with a pair of walks on the day.

Rutgers’ elimination from the Big Ten Tournament comes after not only the loss to Michigan State, but a heartbreaking 9-7 loss to Nebraska to open the tournament.

Rutgers finishes the season at 33-23.
