ORLANDO, Fla. – The University of Cincinnati baseball team fell 5-1 to UCF on Sunday afternoon for its third straight loss to the Knights. The loss concluded opening weekend in American Athletic Conference play for the Bearcats.

UCF scored one run in five different innings to earn the win. It improves to 13-12 on the season while Cincinnati falls to 8-14.

On the mound, freshman Andrew Zellner takes the loss for the Bearcats. He pitched 3.0 innings with four hits, one walk and three runs. His record drops to 1-2.

Sophomore Devin Wenzel (Blandon, Pa./Fleetwood Area) finished with two hits for the Bearcats and scored the only run.

The Knights wasted no time getting on the scoreboard, scoring one run apiece in the first, second and third innings. In the first, the leadoff hitter sent a double to the leftfield corner on the first pitch of the inning and later scored on a sacrifice fly. In the second inning, another leadoff double and a wild pitch put a runner on third base and a single brought him home. A solo homerun by UCF’s Erik Barber gave the home team a 3-0 lead in the third inning.

The Bearcats got one run back in the fifth inning thanks in part to two balks from UCF pitcher Robby Howell. Wenzel led off the inning with a double and advanced two bases on the pitching miscues to cut the Knights’ lead to 3-1.

UCF added two insurance runs in the sixth and seven innings and closed out the Bearcats with a final score of 5-1.

Cincinnati is back in action on Tuesday, March 25 with a game at Northern Kentucky University in Highland Heights, Ky. The game is set for 3 p.m. at the Bill Aker Baseball Complex.
