CLEARWATER, Fla. – Designated hitter Stanley Paul scored on a wild pitch in the bottom of the ninth inning, capping Connecticut’s comeback from a 7-0 deficit and giving the Huskies an 8-7 win against USF Thursday night in the Big East Baseball Championship at Bright House Field.
The win sends the Huskies to the semifinal round of the tournament for the fifth consecutive season. It capped a wild first two days of the Big East Championship that sees the tournament’s No. 7 and No. 8 seeds – Notre Dame and UConn – as the only unbeaten teams remaining, while the top six seeds are either eliminated or sitting with one loss.
