UConn Holds On, Beats Stanford 13-12 Super Regional Game 1 – Boston News Weather Sports

STANFORD, Calif. (AP) — Casey Dana and Matt Donlan each drove in three heats, and UConn held a late Stanford rally to take the Cardinal 13-12 in Saturday night’s Game 1 of the best-of-three Stanford Super Regional to beat.

Unseeded UConn (50-14) can earn a place in the College World Series with a win in Game 2 on Sunday.

Korey Morton led with a double from the top of the second and scored when TC Simmons drove the next pitch to the right for a double. Donlan hit a two-run home run, Dana had a two-run double and hit a double by Bryan Padilla two batters later before Morton hit one towering two-barrel shot to the left, giving the Huskies a 9-0 lead.

Brock Jones and Matt Barrera each hit a solo homer at the bottom of the seventh to trail No. 2 Stanford at 13-6, and the Cardinal (45-16) hit four homers at the bottom of the ninth before Justin Willis slammed Adam Crampton – tied first – to end the game. Jones and Braden Montgomery hit with two running shots before Drew Bowser and Tommy Troy made it 13-12 with back-to-back home runs.

Dana hit a fielding error and Ben Huber followed immediately with a two-out RBI double to make it 1-0 and UConn led the rest of the way.

Pat Gallagher (11-3) gave up five runs on nine hits with a walk and eight strikeouts over 6 1/3 innings for the win.
