The Central Connecticut baseball team improved to 10-11-1
overall on the season with a 7-5 win over visiting Iona on
Wednesday afternoon. The game is the first at home for the Blue
Devils in the last two weeks. They will play 13 of their next 15
games at home. They begin a weekend series on Friday at home
hosting Mount St. Mary's at 3 p.m.
Central led 1-0 after the first inning on a sacrifice from senior Pat Epps. Junior Jake Matuszak singled to lead off the inning and scored on the play. The lead reached 6-0 in the second inning as the first seven Blue Devils reached base and five of them scored. Sophomore Tyler McIntyre hit his first career home run, a two run shot to begin the scoring. Senior Sean Miller-Jones singled in two more runs and a fifth scored on a double play.
The Gaels scored five times in the seventh inning, including a solo home run from designated hitter Chris Burke, to cut the lead to 6-5.
Central made it 7-5 on an RBI single from freshman Dylan DelaCruz in the bottom of the seventh.
Matuszak finished the game with four hits and a pair of runs scored. Miller-Jones and McIntyre each drove in two. DelaCruz had a pair of hits and an RBI and freshman J.P. Sportman added two hits.
Junior Harry Glynne came into the game in the first inning and pitched another 3.2 innings, facing only 10 batters and allowing just one hit to earn the victory. He struck out one. Freshman Josh Ingham pitched the final two innings to pick up his second save of the season.
