STORRS, Conn. -- Due to unplayable field conditions at J.O. Christian Field, the UConn baseball game against Hartford tomorrow (March 25) afternoon scheduled to be a home game in Storrs will now be an away game in West Hartford. First pitch between the Huskies and Hawks at Fiondella Field is still set for 3 p.m.
The Huskies have opened the season with a 11-10 record and have won seven of their last nine contests. Sophomore 1B Bobby Melley (Barnstable, Mass.) was named to the American Athletic Conference Honor Roll for the week of March 24. Melley hit .444 (8-for-18) to go along with four walks, knocking two doubles and notching four RBI in UConn's three-win week.
Freshman RHP Andrew Zapata (Staten Island, N.Y.) will make his third start of the season for the Huskies. The hurler has tossed 20.1 innings this season, allowing just 10 hits and three earned runs, while striking out 15 batters. In his first collegiate start, Zapata shined, throwing seven shutout innings, allowing one hit and four walks to go with five strikeouts.
