• Mancini batted .750 (9-for-12) with three runs scored, one double and three RBI in the sweep of the Huskies.

• Sophomore PH Blaise Lezynski stroked a two-run double in the bottom of the fifth inning to give the Irish a 7-5 lead over Connecticut. Earlier this week against Michigan State, Lezynski drilled a critical pinch-hit two-run home run to give the Irish a 4-3 lead over the Spartans.
