Travis Young turned in his first four-hit game Sunday as Wichita State whipped Connecticut 15-7 to avoid a sweep in the weekend series.

Young, a redshirt junior, was inserted into the lineup to give the Shockers (24-9, 4-5) another right-handed batter against UConn’s left-handed starter.

Young responded with three singles, a double and a sacrifice fly, driving in four runs.

WSU had two innings in which it batted around. The Shockers scored five in the first, their season-high first-inning total. Jordan Boyer’s two-run two-out single was the key hit.

Luke Ritter sparked a six-run seventh with a bases-loaded double, driving in three runs.

UConn (19-11-1, 5-4) had taken the first two games of the series.

Connecticut won the first two games of the series on Friday.

Notes: WSU is 17-4 at home.… Greyson Jenisita, who played first base, got three hits and is hitting .385 in his last seven games (10 for 26).… Ritter got three hits and is hitting .440 (11-25) in his last seven games.… WSU made two errors, giving it 19 errors in nine conference games.
