The UConn baseball team rounded out its seven-game road trip through California by taking two of three games from San Diego. The wins pushed the Huskies over the .500 mark, as they now sit at 7-6 on the young season.
UConn won game one of the series last Thursday night by a score of 6-4. Bob Van Woert collected his first win of the season after surrendering just a run in 6.1 innings. The offense spread six runs and 13 hits throughout the contest, as six different Huskies drove a run home.
Senior Doug Elliot fell in Friday’s 3-2 pitcher’s duel that saw UConn squander an early 2-0 lead. The Huskies would rebound, however, in the final game of the road trip on the back of a complete-game shutout by Matt Barnes.
UConn finished the trip with a 5-2 record, including a win over then-No. 14 Cal. The Huskies will return to action tomorrow when they travel to face in-state foe Sacred Heart.
