Baseball Takes Series From Arkansas State, 6-4|
Feb. 22, 2004
Jonesboro, Ark. - Good pitching, solid defense and timely hitting often increases a team's chances of winning baseball games.
Such was the case on Sunday afternoon, as the University of Illinois at Chicago combined all three, en route to the 6-4 non-conference victory over Arkansas State at Tomlinson Stadium in the rubber game of their series.
With the victory, UIC improves to 2-1 on the campaign, while Arkansas State falls to 3-4 overall.
The Flames rapped out 11 hits on the afternoon, led by two apiece from J.P. Moran, Mike Hughes and Ted Rosinski. Senior shortstop Jordan DeVoir went 1-for-5 with two RBI, including his first homer of the season.
Junior Charlie Hahn picked up the victory for the Flames, scattering six hits and striking out three batters over five innings. Freshman Ryan Zink closed the game out for UIC, tossing four innings of scoreless relief in his first collegiate appearance, to earn the save.
UIC will be back in action on Friday evening, as they will travel to Port St. Lucie, Fla., to square off with Michigan at 7:00 p.m. (CST).
