UConn Baseball earned a 6-seed in the AAC Tournament, which is underway in Clearwater, Florida. The Huskies will be taking on 3-seed Tulane in a one-game series, with the winner advancing to play the winner of No. 2 East Carolina vs. No. 7 UCF.
UConn took two out of three against Tulane on the road in the middle of the season. The Green Wave ended the season on a strong note, with series wins against USF and Memphis. They have also been testing themselves against quality competition down south in the middle of the week.
Sophomore Alex Zapata (5-0, 4.24 ERA) will be starting for the Huskies while junior Patrick Duester (6-5, 2.58 ERA) will take the mound for Tulane.
