    The UConn baseball team stayed alive in the NCAA Tournament, staving off Florida A&M, 9-6, in an elimination game Saturday in the Regional at Gainesville, Fla.

    Ben Huber, with three RBI, doubled, singled and blasted a two-run homer in the eighth to provide the big hits as UConn (44-16) bounced back from a 3-2 loss to Texas Tech in the opener.

    The victory was No. 700 for coach Jim Penders, who took over the program in 2004 and is UConn’s winningest baseball coach.

    “It was nice to have it be such a meaningful win, to keep our season alive,” said Penders (700-448-5), who has a .611 winning percentage. “Anybody who tells you they don’t know how many they’ve got when they get that close, they’re not telling you the truth. … Now, we can just worry about winning one more game (Sunday), then another game after that.”
