March 23, 2013
WASHINGTON - Connecticut scored three runs in the first inning and beat Georgetown, 6-0, in the second game of a three-game BIG EAST baseball series at Shirley Povich Field in Bethesda, Md. Saturday afternoon.
The three-game series with the Huskies was originally scheduled for Storrs, Conn., but inclement weather in the area forced the series to be moved to Georgetown.
The loss ends Georgetown's eight-game win streak as the Hoyas fall to 15-7 overall and 1-1 in the BIG EAST, while Connecticut improves to 12-7 overall and 1-1 in league play.
Senior left-hander Thomas Polus (Crown Point, Ind./Andrean) threw six innings and gave up four runs on five hits with two walks and three strikeouts in the loss.
Polus got into trouble in the first as the first two Huskies reached base and LJ Mazzilli hit a three-run home to left, giving UConn a 3-0 lead.
Polus settled down and was solid through the fourth until a two-out walk followed by an RBI double from Bobby Melley gave the Huskies a 4-0 lead.
Georgetown had chances, out-hitting the Huskies, 8-7, but could not get anything across the board. UConn starter Carter Cross retired the first six batters, but the Hoyas had runners on base in the next three innings, but were held at bay.
The Hoyas loaded the bases in the seventh with one out after junior first baseman Steve Anderson (Albany, N.Y./Guilderland) reached on an error and singles from senior second baseman Danny Poplawski (Bellevue, Wash./Overlake) and freshman Nick Collins (Carthage, N.C./Union Pines) but Cross induced the final two outs to end the threat.
The Huskies added two more runs in the bottom of the seventh to seal the win.
The series concludes on Sunday, March 24, with Georgetown and Connecticut playing at 1 p.m.
