MEMPHIS, Tenn. - Behind a complete game effort by Jon Reed, Memphis evened the three-game series with UConn following a 6-1 win on Saturday at FedExPark.

Reed (6-2) allowed one run on six hits and struck out five for the first complete game since May 11 of last season. The Huskies (22-24, 6-10 American) scored their lone run in the seventh inning. A leadoff double and two groundouts brought in the run, but Memphis answered in the bottom of the inning to take the impressive 6-1 victory.

The Tigers (25-23, 6-11 American) answered in a big way, scoring four runs on four hits and three Huskies errors to lead 6-1 after seven innings. Back-to-back singles by Schritenthal and Darien Tubbs got the inning off to a good start. Zach Willis laid down a bunt single and the throw to first allowed one run to score and a second error on the play plated Darien Tubbs. Jake Little picked up career hit 100 with a RBI double to score Willis and the Tigers led 5-1. Little stole third and scored as the throw to third got away for the third error in the inning.

Memphis grabbed a 1-0 lead in the first off a sacrifice fly by Carter White. Willis hit a one-out single and a Kane Barrow single advanced Willis to scoring position. Little was hit by a pitch to load the bases and White's sacrifice fly gave the Tigers the lead.

A sacrifice fly in the third brought home the second tally for the Tigers. Darien Tubbs set the table with a leadoff single and the speedy freshman stole second to stand in scoring position with no outs. A groundout advanced Tubbs to third and Barrow lifted a fly ball to centerfield to bring home the second run.

Little and Darien Tubbs led the Tigers with three-hit days while Willis and Zach Schritenthal each had two hits.

Memphis looks for their first series win in league play when the series finale gets underway on Sunday at 11:30 a.m.
