SOUTH ORANGE, N.J. – The UConn baseball team heads back on the road this weekend for a three-game set with former Big East foe, Seton Hall. The series originally scheduled at J.O. Christian Field shifted to Owen T. Carroll Field due to weather/unplayable field conditions in Storrs.

Carson Cross notched his fifth victory of the season, pitching 8.2 innings of shutout baseball to win 1-0 on March 25, 2015. Vinny Siena (4-4) and Max McDowell (3-3) aided the Huskies at the plate in the rubber game of the series, winning 6-3.

The Huskies offense has posted 7.8 runs per game in their latest 10-game stretch. Zac Susi has gone 14-39 (.359) with eight runs scored, three doubles and 15 RBIs.
