Up Next For the Bulls:
Game 48: at Notre Dame | May 13 | 7:00 p.m. | South Bend, Ind.

Storrs, Conn. -Falling behind early in the first inning, the University of South Florida baseball team (22-25, 11-10) could not erase UConn's early two-run advantage, falling, 2-0, to the Huskies Monday afternoon at J.O. Christian Field.

UConn's Ryan Fuller continued to be a thorn in USF pitching's side as he delivered a two-run double to give UConn a 2-0 lead in the first.

Bulls starter senior Kyle Eastham settled down after giving up the double to Fuller working 4.0 innings. He yielded three of the four hits he would scatter in the first inning.

Eastham retired seven of the final eight batters he faced before giving way to senior Zach Pietrzyk, who worked a pair of scoreless innings of relief.

Relievers junior Jimmy Moran and senior Kevin Quackenbush, each pitched scoreless innings to keep the Bulls in the game but it would be a game of missed opportunities at the plate for the Bulls' offense.

USF left eight runners on base including runners on first and third and no outs in the first after senior Jonathan Koscso doubled to leadoff the game.

The Bulls had UConn starter Brian Ward on the ropes throughout the game but could not deliver timely hits. Ward went 8.0 innings, scattering six hits and walking three. He would strike out 10 Bulls in the game en route to the win.

The Bulls brought the tying run to the plate in six of the final eight innings but could not break into the scoring column.

Six different Bulls collected hits in the game for USF, who were out-hit, 7-6, on the afternoon.

Eastham (3-5) suffered the loss for the Bulls. 

With the loss, USF falls back into a three-way tie with Louisville and Cincinnati for fifth place in the conference race. USF sits just a game infront of eighth place Seton Hall, for the final spot in the BIG EAST Championship and seven games behind first place UConn.

With no mid-week game this week, the Bulls will turn their focus to a critical BIG EAST series in South Bend, Ind. against Notre Dame. The Irish sit just outside the BIG EAST Championship picture at 9-11, a .5 game back behind of eighth place Seton Hall, who are at 10-11 in BIG EAST play.

Game Notes
The game was played in 2:06... It is the first time the Bulls have been swept in BIG EAST play since April 15-17, 2010 when they dropped three at Rutgers... It is the second time this season that USF has been swept in a three game series...
