Sweep Satisfaction As WVU Tops Butler

In front of a record weekend crowd, West Virginia completed the sweep of Butler with a 12-4 win on Sunday. Almost 7,000 fans came to see the Mountaineers play in their new stadium, and the team did not disappoint as Chad Donato and KC Huth dominated the Dogs in the final game of the series.

Randy Mazey improved his team to 21-12 with a sweep over Butler, noting that the new ballpark and fan base was key, as was the offensive explosion by Huth, who went 3-for-3 with three RBI and three runs scored.

In six innings pitched, Chad Donato allowed only four hits and one run with 10 strikeouts - not a bad way to finish out a sweep. The sophomore pitcher said he had limited control over his fastball, forcing him to go to his curveball.

KC Huth's hitting average this session is .300 thanks to his red hot performance on through the weekend, and on Sunday the junior outfielder was in the zone. He finished 3-for-3 including a homer over the left field fence. Huth said he has been feeling more confident since his hand injury, and is part of the reason for his recent success.
