Wong C
Hollis 2B
Scheiner 3B
Julks CF
Davis DH
Coldiron SS
Triolo RF
Lockhart 1B
Bielamowicz LF

Ullom P

Not starting Cumbie is a gamble. This is a must win game.

Ullom’s pretty good in big game situations and he did beat Cate early in the year. Just got to hope that you get to Cate early again and can hold on.


Top 1st
Groundout, single, flyout to left, runner caught stealing

M1…No Score

That tag was hard to see, but looked very close.

UConn coach may get tossed from this one early. Already been told by the umpire to sit down.
