Wild wild west

By Dan Agabiti, Staff Writer

Half way into the baseball team’s western road trip, they are an impressive 3-1 and have outscored opponents 33-9.

It all started Saturday, when the Huskies defeated San Diego State 9-3. The game was tied going into the eighth inning, when UConn exploded for six runs, getting their road trip off to a good start.

Next on the dockett was No. 14 Cal and UConn held them to just one run in their 3-1 win. Junior Matt Barnes went 7.1 innings, striking out six and allowing only a single run en route to a win.

Monday night, the UConn bats came alive in a 17-0 decimation of San Diego. Three Huskies had four-hit performances including Doug Elliot, Mike Nemeth and George Springer. The highlight of the game was UConn’s seven-run seventh inning.

The Huskies finally lost their first game of the road trip Tuesday night against UC-Irvine. UConn gave up the game-winning run in the bottom of the eighth inning and fell 5-4. After two innings, UConn was down 3-0 and tied the game at five in the eighth, but it was not enough to come away with a win.

Now at 5-5, the Huskies prepare to take on San Diego in a three-game series to close out their trip out west and then head to Bridgeport, Conn. to face Sacred Heart.
