UCF baseball remained at the top of the American Athletic Conference on Sunday, after beating USF 6-3 in Tampa.
The Knights (20-13, 8-1 The American) relied on the hitting of Tommy Williams, who hit a pair of two-run homers that powered the Knights to the victory. The Knights have now won 11 out of their past 12 games after UCF saw its winning streak come to an end on Saturday as South Florida beat the Knights 4-2.
Williams is now the leader in home runs for the American Athletic Conference with nine on the season.
“I got a couple of good pitches to hit and was able to put some strong swings on them. I was a little out in front the first at-bat, so I laid back, but I was still out in front. I didn’t know if it was staying fair or not. The second one I knew was gone. I had the green light on 3-0, but took a strike. I knew I’d probably get another fastball and I was ready for it,” Williams said.
UCF baseball now has a two day break before they take on the Miami Hurricanes at home on Wednesday. The last time the Knights played Miami, they beat them 9-2 on the road.
