The Connecticut Huskies mens basketball team went on their annual, three-mile Husky Run on Wednesday to kick-start the beginning of preseason.The first player to cross the finish line was senior center?Amida Brimah, followed by Vance Jackson and then head coach Kevin Ollie. Yep, the head coach gave the boys a run for their money and so did strength and conditioning coach Travis Illian, who crossed the finish line first overall. Meanwhile, Christian Vital finished last with the longest time because he took a wrong turn along the route.If you are not familiar, the Husky Run is a 3.1 mile run around Connecticuts campus which the mens basketball players partake in with fans and students to celebrate the beginning of preseason. The run was a bit different this year though, as fans and students were not allowed to run due to safety precautions because of on-campus construction, writes Dom Amore of the Hartford Courant.Theres a lot of construction on campus, and thats a tough time of day for traffic in the area, UConn spokesman Mike Enright said. To have a large group of people running at that time is a safety concern. This is not to say that in the future we wont look at other options and do something different to get it back.The Huskies will have their first full practice on Saturday.

Normally a leadoff hitter, Blanco has been used in the middle of the order more often. When he comes up with runners on, he has the mindset to drive in runs rather than just trying to get on base. Blanco had a pinch hit, two-run triple in the seventh inning, leading the San Francisco Giants to a 4-2 victory over the San Diego Padres on Wednesday. "When they want me batting sixth or seventh, it means they want me to drive in runs," Blanco said. "So when I came up to hit I told myself I had better drive these people in." With a big part of its offence on the disabled list, the Giants have turned to players like Blanco, a career .383 hitter with runners in scoring position, to pick up the slack. "Were getting good games from a lot of guys," Giants catcher Buster Posey said. Brandon Belt and Marco Scutaro also drove in runs as the Giants won their second straight following a three-game slide. Scutaro and Hunter Pence each had two hits. "Gregor has played well all season," Giants manager Bruce Bochy said. "He comes through in the clutch, has speed and is a tremendous defender. Hes just getting better and better." Will Venable and Jesus Guzman each hit home runs for the Padres, who have lost two straight after a seven-game winning streak. "Guzzie is a guy who is seeing the ball well and hes got the strength to hit it out of the park," Padres manager Bud Black said. Madison Bumgarner (7-4) won his third straight start after allowing two runs and three hits over seven innings. He walked four and struck out eight. Padres starter Eric Stults gave up two runs and seven hits over 6 1-3 innings. He walked two and struck out three. "Stults pitched great," Black said. "It was a well-pitched game by both guys. They have a good pitching staff and we feel ours is rounding into form." Luke Gregerson (4-3) did not retire a batter, giving up two runs and four hits. He took over for Stults after Tony Abreu singled with one out in the seventh. Pinch-hitter Hector Sanchez also singled ahead of Blancos triple, which one-hopped the fence in right-centre field. "I wanted to be aggressive," Blanco said. "I was looking for location and wanted to put a good swing on it." Scutaro followed with an RBI single and Posey singled before Tyson Ross came on to strike out Pence and Joaquin Arias. He also struck out the side in the eighth. Jake Dunning pitched the eighth and Serrgio Romo worked the ninth for his 18th save in 21 chances.dddddddddddd The benches cleared briefly in the second inning when Guzman took a few steps toward the mound after a pitch from Bumgarner sailed behind his back. "I was mad because it was just too obvious to me," Guzman said. "Its OK. I will forget about that moment. I play for my team and I play to win. Well just play and see what happens." Posey said it was nothing more than missed location. "Were trying to get inside on a guy who has hurt us out before," he said. "Thats all there was to it." Venable hit his 10th home run of the season, a solo shot leading off the third to put the Padres ahead. The Giants tied it with a run in the fourth. Belts looping fly ball down the left field line fell just out of the reach of the charging Kyle Blanks, allowing Pence to score from third. Guzman led off the seventh with his third home run of the season and second in two games. Hes a .304 career hitter against left-handers and .429 (12 for 28) against Bumgarner. Guzman, who made his major league debut with the Giants against the Padres, has hit four home runs in San Francisco, second only to eight in San Diego. He has no more than one in any other ballpark.
