Game 47: at UConn | May 9 | 1:00 p.m. | Storrs.Conn

Storrs, Conn. -The University of South Florida baseball team (22-24, 11-9) dropped the series to No. 20 UConn with a 9-5 loss Sunday afternoon at J.O. Christian Field.

The UConn offense would take control early on, scoring two in the first and one in the fourth.

The Bulls got on the board in the fifth inning on a Jonathan Koscso RBI single up the middle scoring James Ramsay but the Huskies would answer with three in the bottom half of the inning, highlighted by a two-run homer off the bat of George Springer.

UConn extended their lead in the seventh with three runs to make it 9-1 in favor of the Huskies.

The Bulls would rally for one in the eighth and three in the ninth but it would not be enough.

On the day, the Bulls would use four pitchers but starter Junior Carlin (1-2) would be left on the hook for the loss. Making his fourth start of the season, Carlin gave up three runs on five hits over four innings of work. He struck out two and walked a pair.

USF could not break through against UConn starter Greg Nappo, who was making his fourth career start against the Bulls. Nappo worked six plus innings, giving up one run on six hits and striking out four.

Offensively, Koscso and sophomore Chad Taylor lead the way with a pair of hits each. On the day the Bulls were out hit 11-10 by the Huskies..

With the loss, USF is now at 11-9 in BIG EAST play in fifth place in the conference with a half-game lead in-front a three way tie for sixth.

The Bull will look to salvage a series split in the finale when they take on the Huskies again on Monday afternoon with first pitch at 1 p.m at J.O. Christian Field.
