In the last conference series of the year, the UConn baseball team strolled into New Orleans and left with a couple victories. They grabbed the series win against Tulane as they have set themselves up as the No. 4 seed in The American Athletic Conference Championship.
Struggles at the plate last season were the team’s Achilles heel, hitting just .210, a full 30 points behind the next lowest finisher. They also crossed the plate the fewest times last season, as their 148 runs scored (about 2.69 runs per game) were 24 fewer than East Carolina who was the only other school to score less than 200.
