CINCINNATI – Justin Glass hit his third homerun in as many games, but the University of Cincinnati baseball team fell 14-3 to UConn in the series finale at Marge Schott Stadium. The Bearcats and Huskies had split the first two games of the weekend, giving the visitor’s the 2-1 edge.

With the loss, Cincinnati falls to 14-20 on the season and 3-9 in American Athletic Conference pay. UConn improves to 17-17 and 4-4.

Glass sparked the offense for the Bearcats in the bottom of the first inning when he blasted a ball over the right field fence for a 2-RBI homerun. The long ball was the third of the series for the senior who hit one in each of the three games against UConn. It was the first time that a Bearcats player has hit a homerun in three straight games since sophomore Ian Happ (Pittsburgh, Pa./Mt. Lebanon) did so on April 27, 28 and 30 of last season.

The Huskies responded to the Bearcats’ two runs immediately, scoring four in the top of the second inning. A 2-RBI triple by Max McDowell tied the game and two UC errors contributed to two more runs.

UConn used three big innings to topple the Bearcats, scoring four runs in the second, five in the fourth and four in the eighth. The Huskies finished with 15 hits, tying a season-high of hits allowed, with three doubles, two triples and one homerun.

A total of eight homeruns were hit between the teams during the series, doubling the amount that had been hit at Marge Schott Stadium in the previous five games played at the facility.

The Bearcats scored their final run of the day in the bottom of the ninth inning. Glass hit a single up the middle and scored on a double by Ethan McAlpine (Cincinnati, Ohio/Moeller) to bring the final score to 14-3.

UC will be back at Marge Schott Stadium for a game against its crosstown rival Xavier University on Tuesday, April 15. The first pitch is scheduled for 6:30 p.m.
