The USF baseball team will be without first baseman Matt McHargue for at least 4 to 6 weeks due to a hand injury.
The fifth-year senior broke the fourth metacarpal in his right hand when he was hit by a pitch during an intra-squad game on Tuesday.
“We’re going to miss him in the lineup; now we have to compensate,” Cardieri said. “More than that, it’s just a shame that something like this had to happen.”
McHargue, a .268 career hitter, had racked up 20 home runs, 63 RBI and 47 runs scored in 108 games. He saw significant action last season, starting 36 games and hitting eight home runs, which was third on the team.
McHargue entered the season with high expectations, being named to the Wallace Watch List – the Wallace award is given to the nation’s best college baseball player.
“When it happens to a fifth-year senior who is really primed for a big season, it’s really sad,” Cardieri said. “But it’s just one of those things; it’s unavoidable; there’s nobody to blame.”

Coach Brian Gregory said Tuesday the Bulls didn’t play complete, 40-minute games in their two losses last week. It’s debatable if they did Wednesday night against East Carolina (11-18, 5-11) at the Yuengling Center, but it was more than enough to put up a 73-68 overtime win. “It’s funny. There were stretches where we played […]
