UConn star Anthony Kay makes likely final home start; could be first-round pick in MLB Draft

(WTNH)–The UConn baseball team has been pumping out Major League Baseball talent on a regular basis. This year, MLB teams will be lining up to draft junior lefthanded pitcher Anthony Kay.

Kay is expected to be a first-round pick in next month’s draft. On Friday, he made what will likely be his last start in Storrs.

The Huskies opened a three-game series with Central Florida. Kay pitched eight strong innings, and struck out six. He moved within five K’s of tying the record for the most in program history, which is currently held by Red Sox reliever Matt Barnes.

UConn won its 27th game Friday over Central Florida, 4-3. The Huskies have won four of five. They’re 27-22 overall on the season, and 9-9 in conference, good for fourth place.
