TEAM OF THE DAY: Central Florida
The Knights had stumbled in some midweek affairs the past couple of weeks, so taking care of business against East Carolina this weekend was a must. UCF hasn't had much of an issue doing so far this weekend. The Knights clinched a huge series victory over the Pirates with a 10-6 triumph on Saturday. Hard-hitting first baseman DJ Hicks went 2-for-3 with a home run, two runs and two RBIs, while catcher Ryan Breen went 3-for-3 with a home run and two RBIs.
PLAYER OF THE DAY: Max Muncy, 1b, Baylor
The Bears are playing extremely well with hard-hitting first baseman Max Muncy leading the charge. Muncy had a huge day at the plate as the Bears captured a series-clinching 9-0 win over Kansas. Muncy went 2-for-5 with two home runs, two runs scored and five RBIs, bringing his home run total for the season to four.
UPSET OF THE DAY: Maryland-Baltimore County over Tulane
It's always incredibly risky to face weak competition during the season. Well, that plan has backfired a bit for the Green Wave. The Green Wave was upset, 3-2, by the Retrievers on Saturday. UMBC starting pitcher Mac Gill put together an impressive start, allowing just two runs on seven hits in 7 2/3 innings of work. The win was just UMBC's sixth of the season, while Tulane's RPI is destined to plunge following the setback.
