Key to the Game – UConn Do It Making the spot start tonight, Anthony Marzi has been one of the Bees’ best and most reliable pitchers for Stan Cliburn since the calendar flipped to August. In three games of relief in August, the UConn alum has not allowed a run while allowing just four hits and striking out ten in 13.1 innings, proving himself capable of being extremely effective for multiple innings.
