It was a bombastic Citronaut Saturday at John Euliano Park as four UCF Knights blasted their first home runs of the season: Nick Romano (2-run), Ben McCabe (Solo), Tom Josten (Grand Slam), and Alex Freeland (Solo).

The hot bats were not the only ones to steal the show, as Connor Staine notched 8 punchouts while giving up only one hit and two unearned runs over 4.2 innings of work in his first start on the rubber as a ‘Naut. The rest of the arm barn were staut, working 4.1 innings of shutout ball.

Check out our photo gallery below from Saturday’s ‘Naut-tastic 16-2 victory!

The series finale vs. Siena will be Sunday at 1:00pm at John Euliano Park. You can also catch the game on ESPN+. UCF Track and Field star Rayniah Jones will throw out the First Pitch.
