Rutgers' RBI king: Chris Brito breaks school record in B1G Tournament
Chris Brito has rewritten the Rutgers record book. In the early Sunday morning hours, Brito became the Scarlet Knights’ new RBI king.
In Saturday’s semifinal against Indiana, which did not start until 11:53 p.m. ET, Brito added to the outpouring of offense to make it 14-2 on a 2-RBI single. They were RBIs Nos. 73 and 74 for Brito, the most by any Rutgers player in a single season.

Brito broke the record set by Peter Zoccolillo in 1999. The infielder is hitting .317 with 16 home runs in the 2022 campaign.
Brito and the Scarlet Knights will face the winner of the Iowa-Michigan semifinal in Sunday evening’s B1G Tournament championship game.
