Gnesda went 7-for-14 with six runs scored, a pair of homers and 11 RBIs in UConn wins over No. 12 Missouri State, Austin Peay, and Alcorn St. The DH boasted a weekend slugging percentage of 1.000 and held a stellar .611 OBP over the three-game stretch.
In his first season at UConn after transferring from Cypress College, Gnesda owns a .346 batting average with three extra-base hits and a team-best 13 RBIs.
As a team, the Huskies tallied 56 runs over three days in Tennessee, including a 25-run output against the Braves in Sunday's finale, marking the most runs the program has scored in a single game since it picked up a 25-5 victory over CCSU in the 2010 NCAA Tournament.
The team returns to the diamond on Friday, March 4 when it travels to Liberty for a three-game set on March 4-6. Check back with uconnhuskies.com on Wednesday for a complete series preview.
