    Melley Hits Walk-Off Triple in the Seventh
    As night fall reached J.O. Christian Field in the seventh inning, freshman first baseman Bobby Melley (Barnstable, Mass.) lifted a fly ball to right field with two outs that rolled to the fence for a two-run triple and giving the University of Connecticut baseball team a walk-off 4-2 win over Quinnipiac in its home opener on Monday. The Huskies improved to 16-9 on the season, while the Bobcats fell to 9-11.

    The Huskies dropped the rubber match of their conference series with Temple on Sunday, despite a three-hit performance from junior OF Blake Davey. The Newport Beach, Calif. native and defending conference Player of the Week has been one of the Huskies’ most consistent threats at the dish in 2014, recording team-highs in home runs (8), slugging percentage (.609), runs (32) and  total bases (78). Davey is joined by sophomore 1B Bobby Melley (Barnstable, Mass.) as the only Husky players to boast plus-.300 batting averages this season.

    UConn, which is 13-13 in non-conference play, defeated CCSU, 6-1, in 10 innings on March 19 in Winter Haven, Fla. The Huskies erupted for five runs in the 10th inning and 14 hits on the day to win their sixth straight game. The squads were originally scheduled to play game two on March 26 but unplayable field conditions forced the programs to reschedule. Overall, Connecticut sports a 27-8 (.771) all-time record against the Blue Devils in a series that dates back to 1987.

    On Tuesday, UMass and UConn will square off for the 160th time in a series that dates back to 1900. Last season, UConn played host to the Minutemen and escaped with a 5-4 victory, taking advantage of a four-run seventh inning. The Huskies hold a 86-70-3 edge in the all-time series and are winners of the last nine matchups.

    Connecticut will play its third game in as many days on Wednesday when it makes its way to Hamden, Conn. to take on the Bobcats at 3 p.m. The two teams last met in a rain-shortened game in 2013 at J.O. Christian Field and Melley proved to be the hero, connecting for a walk-off two-run triple in the home half of the seventh inning.
