Yale Baseball Plays UConn Wednesday
WEST HAVEN, Conn. - Yale takes on the University of Connecticut in a non-league game Wednesday at 3:00 P.M. EDT.
Yale (9-11, 2-2 league) comes into the mid-week game directly after two doubleheaders. Those games against Penn and Columbia, originally scheduled for the weekend, were moved to Monday and Tuesday due to weather. Yale lost both to Penn on Monday, but bounced back to sweep Columbia on Tuesday. Fantastic pitching performances from Chris Lanham and David Hickey led the way, as the Bulldogs won 3-0 and 4-1.
Robert Baldwin has been hitting the ball incredibly well as of late. He put up three doubles and a walk between the two Tuesday games.
The bullpen should be relatively rested after Lanham and Hickey required little assistance. Only Chris Moates was needed to relieve on Tuesday. The Bulldogs will have a few days rest before playing Brown at home on Saturday.
Connecticut (12-13, 1-1 league) comes into Wednesday having lost four of its last six games, the most recent of which to Hartford, who Yale also lost to.
UConn's bats are led by Bobby Melley, whose .360 batting average, .491 on-base percentage, and .517 slugging percentage are all team highs. He, along with Blake Davey, has hit three home runs so far. UConn has five players with a home run so far.
On the moun, Anthony Marzi has already started seven games. He has maintained a 2.28 ERA in that time, holding opponents to a .198 batting average. David Mahoney has been dominant out of the bullpen, allowing no earned runs through 11 appearances for nine total innings.
