    Win-Marzi (3-2) • Loss-Rosa (2-1) • Save-None • T-2:49 • A-77 • J.O. Christian Field


    STORRS, Conn. (March 29, 2014) – Rutgers baseball could not recover from an early deficit in an 11-4 loss in the middle game of the series at UConn Saturday at J.O. Christian Field. The rubber game is currently in a rain delay in the first inning and the teams will attempt to resume Sunday at 11 a.m.

    The Huskies (12-12, 2-3) jumped up to a 3-0 lead in the first inning on a bases-clearing double by Bobby Melley. The lead was extended to 6-0 after three and 11-0 following the fifth.

    Rutgers (9-13, 2-3) broke the shutout with a two-run double by junior Joe D’Annunzio (Scotch Plains, N.J.) to score senior Brian O’Grady (Warminster, Pa.) and freshman Chris Folinusz (Cranford, N.J.). Folinusz picked up two hits in the game off the bench.

    Freshman Colin Bohnert (West Caldwell, N.J.) pitched well in relief for RU, not allowing a run or walk over three innings. The right-hander surrendered one hit and struck out two. Classmate Sean Kelly (Marlton, N.J.) worked a scoreless bottom of the eighth.

    In the ninth, D’Annunzio walked and freshman Mike Carter (Bloomfield, N.J.) doubled to put two on with one out. Sophomore John Jennings (Berkeley Heights, N.J.) then stepped up and connected for a two-run double to set the final at 11-4.

    Freshman Gaby Rosa (Perth Amboy, N.J.) (2-1) suffered his first loss in his third start of the year. Anthony Marzi (3-2) pitched seven innings to earn the win for the hosts.

    Game three of the series started shortly after, but a persistent rain forced the umpires to bring on the tarp to put the game in a delay. It will pick up with one out in the bottom of the first with no score.
