A throwing error by USF catcher Trey Manz has led to a 1-0 UConn lead, as the Bulls come up to bat in the fifth inning at Bright House Field.

After Big East Rookie of the Year George Springer walked to lead off the inning, he tried to steal second and Manz tossed it into center field, allowing Springer to take third.

The next batter, Mike Olt, sent a high fly into left field and Springer scored easily.

With the error, it’s an unearned run and Sanford still officially has only give up one hit. Right now, UConn’s Matt McDonald is carrying a no-hitter.
