After dropping the first matchup of a four-game series, the University of Minnesota Crookston baseball team rebounded to take the next three over the Upper Iowa University Peacocks last weekend.
Due to a high chance of inclement weather down south, the two-day doubleheader originally scheduled to take place in Fayette, Iowa was moved to Crookston instead.
After losing the first game on Friday 3-2, the Golden Eagles settled in to home field advantage and won the next three games by scores of 10-5, 13-7 and 8-6.
Zach Seiple picked up UMC’s only loss of the weekend on the mound. He pitched two-thirds of an inning and gave up two runs on three hits, one hit batter and two strikeouts.
Gabriel Cavasos earned the win in the second game of Friday’s doubleheader after pitching 4.1 innings. No runs scored on Cavasos while he gave up two hits and one walk with two strikeouts.
Jacob Butcher earned the win in the third matchup of the four-game series with Upper Iowa following five innings of work on the mound. He gave up four runs (three earned) on seven hits, one wild pitch and two walks with two strikeouts.
Seipel picked up the save for the Golden Eagles. In two innings, Seipel walked three batters and struck out four others.
UMC’s Parker Hanson rounded out the weekend by picking up a win of his own in game two of Saturday’s doubleheader. He pitched six innings and gave up six runs on eight hits, two wild pitches and one walk with four strikeouts.
Seipel picked up his second save of the weekend following one inning of work.
UMC is now 18-20 overall and 12-14 in the NSIC. The baseball squad now sits in a tie for eighth place in the NSIC standings with Winona State.
The Golden Eagles return to action at 1 and 3:30 p.m. Wedneday at UMC’s Baseball Field to take on the St. Cloud State University Huskies (27-11, 18-8 NSIC).
