Final Stats

CHARLESTON, N.C. – After a tough loss on Friday night the UConn baseball team responded in the right way with a season-best 17-3 victory over The Citadel on Saturday at the Joe Riley Park.

The Huskies (6-5) recorded a season-high 17 runs on 19 hits and saw a couple Huskies record firsts in a UConn uniform. UConn produced a season-high five-run second inning that was eclipsed by a seven-run sixth frame.

Redshirt freshman Anthony Nucerino recorded his first career hit to cap the five-run second with an RBI double into left centerfield. Junior Mike Woodworth notched his first career extra-base hit the at-bat prior to Nucerino’s, a two-run triple.

Senior Troy Stefanski continued his stellar stretch to begin the season with a 2-4 performance that included a three-run homer to right field in sixth that made it 13-1 Huskies. It is already the third homer of the season for Stefanski and the UConn centerfielder has nine RBIs already this season after registering six last season.



John Toppa and Thad Phillips led the way in the hit column with both juniors snagging three-hit efforts. UConn had seven players nab multi-hit efforts with Isaac Feldstein, Stefanski, Nucerino, Woodworth and Christian Fedko all with two-hit contests.

Feldstein delivered his team-leading fourth home run on a mammoth solo shot out to left field in the fifth.

Mason Feole benefited with his second win of 2018 after pitching 5.2 innings and only allowing one run despite a career-high seven walks. Jeff Kersten, Ronnie Rossomando and Joe Simeone came out of the pen for the final 3.1 innings to close out the win.

Freshman Andy Hague recorded a career highlight with his first career hit coming in the ninth inning.

The Huskies return to action on Sunday at 1 p.m. to play the third game of the four-game set.
