Baseball: Huskies return to The Dunk to face Wichita State

The last time UConn was at Dunkin’ Donuts Park, things didn’t exactly go as planned. UConn dropped a mistake-filled three-game series against Cincinnati, kicking off the mid-season malaise that they’re still trying to escape.

The Huskies are just one game over .500 in the three weeks since then, and they’re hoping that this time, a series in front of a Hartford crowd can change their fortunes once again.

“I don’t think the venue matters that much, but the guys do seem to get a little bit amped up there and maybe try and do a little too much,” head coach Jim Penders said. “It’s a good thing that they’re cheering for you but you can’t put additional pressure on yourself and force things that aren’t there.”
