CINCINNATI - Cincinnati returns to BIG EAST Conference action on Saturday when it plays a doubleheader at No. 23 Pittsburgh. The first game starts at 1 p.m. ET. Both games of the doubleheader will be televised by ESPN3. The three-game series concludes Sunday at Noon.
Redshirt-freshman right hander Connor Walsh (1-2, 4.25 ERA) will pitch the first game for UC while freshman right hander Mitch Patishall (2-4, 3.43 ERA) will take the mound for the Bearcats in game two.
The Bearcats have won four of their last five games entering the series. UC defeated Thomas More 5-4 at home on Wednesday after taking two of three from Villanova last weekend.
Pitt leads the series with UC 11-9, taking two of three in last season's series at UC's Marge Schott Stadium. The Bearcats won the first game 2-0 before the Panthers rallied to take the final two games 6-0 and 10-9.
Junior Matt Williams is hitting a team-best .500 (9 for 18) over the last five games, with a .722 slugging percentage to go with a double, homer, four runs scored and two stolen bases. Junior Justin Glass has a team-best six RBI during the stretch.
The Pitt series marks UC's final BIG EAST road trip of the season.
