Huskies Advance To Finals Of Big East Baseball Championship

For the fourth time in six years,  the University of Connecticut baseball Huskies are in the title game of the Big East baseball tournament —  making the finals for the second time as the number eight seed.  They defeated Rutgers 2-1.

The Huskies scored both their runs in the first on an RBI double by L.J. Mazilli and a wild pitch.

In the championship game, they’ll face Notre Dame.  The Irish swept a three-game series with the Huskies in South Bend last month.

Saturday starter and winner Jordan Tabakman says the Huskies have played like a team with nothing to lose. The Huskies lost eleven of their last twelve games of the regular season.

Tabakman went seven innings and the bullpen contributed two innings of shut-out relief,  including Pat Butler’s strike-out of the Scarlet Knights’ Bill Herman with two on in the ninth.

The Huskies face Notre Dame at 11:55 a.m. Sunday.  You can hear the game play-by-play from from Clearwater,  Florida with WTIC’s Joe DiAmbrosio.
