Baseball Falls to Central Connecticut St.

UAlbany Sports Information   04-24-2018

Score: Central Connecticut St. 4, UAlbany 2

Location: Varsity Field in Albany, N.Y.

Records: UAlbany (17-17, 7-8-9 AE); CCSU (13-19, 8-9 NEC)

Short Story: UAlbany falls at home to Central Connecticut St. despite taking an early lead. 

Coach Mueller: “The wind was a factor today for sure, it was a difficult day to score. I thought J.T. threw the ball well for four innings, but he ran into some trouble when we tried to stretch him out. We had limited opportunities to score, and you have to credit Central Connecticut St. They did a good job of limiting us offensively. We’ll just have to pack it up and look forward to Iona tomorrow.”
