    CHICAGO – The UIC baseball team (4-11) mounted a furious comeback at Chicago State (7-8) on Wednesday afternoon, plating eight runs in the ninth inning, but fell short of the Cougars by a final of 14-12.  Five separate Flames’ players recorded multiple hits, including redshirt junior Jon Ryan who went 4-for-5 with four doubles.  Junior Tyler Detmer drove in a team-high three runs and posted his second straight game with a home run.

    Detmer’s solo blast came in the opening frame as UIC took an early 1-0 lead.  Chicago State countered with two scores in the bottom of the first, jumping in front of the Flames, 2-1.

    UIC knotted the score in the top of the fourth inning as Ryan began the frame with his second two-bagger of the day.  Redshirt junior Alex Lee eventually sent Ryan across the dish with an RBI-ground out.

    In the bottom of the fourth, the Cougars made the score 7-2 with five runs.  The Flames cut that lead down to 7-4 with a pair of scores in the top of the fifth as junior Jeff Boehm posted a two-RBI double, his fourth two-baser in five games played this season.  As a team, UIC totaled six doubles on the day.

    Chicago State kept in rolling in the bottom of the fifth with three runs and extending their advantage out to 10-4.  The score remained deadlocked until the bottom of the eighth when CSU plated another four runs to go ahead 14-4.

    Facing a 10-run deficit, the Flames kicked off the final frame with four straight hits, including a two-RBI double from Detmer.  Ryan’s fourth and final double of game sent Detmer home and a single from junior Carl Sugihara advanced Ryan to third.  Junior Jake Nath then reached base on a throwing error by the CSU pitcher and Ryan tacked on another run.  Lee posted his second RBI of the contest with a single to left field that plated Sugihara.  Nath and Lee were the final scores of the game as freshman Cody Bohanek drove both runners home off a double to left field, the first of his collegiate career.  In total, 11 separate UIC players recorded an at-bat during the ninth inning as the Flames posted eight hits.

    The Flames return to action on Friday at home against Horizon League-for Valparaiso with first pitch set for 5:05 p.m. CT.  UIC will also host a doubleheader on Saturday versus the Crusaders, starting at 10:30 a.m.
