CHESTNUT HILL, Mass. – Fresh off a doubleheader sweep of Columbia on Saturday, the UConn baseball team continues non-conference play at Boston College on Tuesday, March 29. First pitch at Shea Field is scheduled for 3 p.m. on WHUS.org, 91.7 FM.
UConn (11-11, 0-0 The American) took two of three vs. the Lions in its final weekend of non-conference play, including a walk-off 4-3 win in Saturday’s nightcap. With the twin-bill sweep, Connecticut improved to 3-1 against Ivy League Competition in 2016.
Connecticut owns a 64-53 all-time record against Boston College in a series dating back to 1909. The Huskies took the last meeting, 8-7, on March 31, 2015 to secure Husky head coach Jim Penders’ 400th career win. In the victory, infielder Willy Yahn (Sharon, Conn.) finished 2-for-4 with a pair of runs scored and two RBIs.
Tuesday’s match-up marks the Huskies’ only regular season game against an ACC opponent – the team owned a 1-1 record against ACC foes in 2015.
The Eagles enter the game with a 13-8 overall record, including a 3-6 mark in league play. Boston College has yet to play a home game in 2016 – the program won 16 of its 22 home games a season ago.
Through 22 games, freshman LHP Tim Cate’s 0.40 ERA is the best among all qualified pitchers in The American, while Yahn’s 33 total hits rank second and .337 batting average is 10th. Senior co-captain Bobby Melley (Barnstable, Mass.) checks in at No. 5 in the conference with 22 total runs scored and Jack Sundberg (Mansfield, Conn.) stands in fourth with 10 total stolen bases.
