    Box Score

    Fayetteville, Ark. - Saturday's rain-out must have given the University of Illinois at Chicago baseball team the rest they needed, as the Flames combined a potent hitting attack and a pitching gem to race past Arkansas for the 9-1 non-conference victory in front of 2,047 at Baum Stadium at George Cole Field on Sunday afternoon.

    "I liked our intensity throughout the entire game," UIC Head Coach Mike Dee said. "We executed our gameplan flawlessly today."

    Junior second baseman Bryan Russo continues to shine for the Flames, going 3-for-5 with four RBI, a run scored and a stolen base. Senior outfielder J.P. Moran (2-run homer) and junior catcher Justin Johnson both chipped in three hits for UIC on Sunday.

    Junior southpaw Ryan Gehring (2-1) retired the first 11 batters he faced and held the Razorbacks to one hit and struck out three batters in eight innings of work.

    "Ryan Gehring was outstanding today," Dee said. "He had command of all of his pitches today and performed like a champion."

    With the victory, UIC improves to 7-4 on the campaign, while the Razorbacks fall to 12-6 overall.

    Ryan Lennerton was tagged with the loss for Arkansas, allowing three runs and six hits in 2 2/3 innings.

    UIC will be back in action on Friday, as they will travel to Coral Gables, Fla., to open a three-game set with #7 Miami at 7:00 p.m.
