St. John's pitcher gets pied on broken nose after winning Big East title

The St. John's baseball team won a record seventh Big East Tournament title after defeating South Florida 7-3 in Clearwater, Fla. and is now headed the the NCAA Tournament for the third year in a row.

After the game, tournament MVP Matt Carasiti was pied in the face while being interviewed by ESPN but it looked like his teammate Kevin Kilpatrick's celebratory gesture hurt just a little.  Maybe it was because the pitcher had pitched with a broken nose and even a cream pie hurts when it's rubbed into your busted schnoz.

Carasiti laughed off the pain after wiping the white stuff from his face.  He had a lot to be happy about after retiring 12 of the 13 batters he faced while St. John's came back from a 3-1 deficit.

The Red Storm (37-21) will make its 34th NCAA baseball tournament appearance and get another shot at the College World Series.

The tournament brackets will be announced on Monday.
