    Box Score

    Homestead, Fla. - University of Illinois at Chicago pitcher Tom Szalewski performed admirably in his first career start as the junior left-hander allowed four hits in 7.2 innings of work, helping the Flames snap a three-game losing streak with a 12-3 victory over Sterling at the Homestead Challenge on Tuesday night.

    "Tommy did a good job tonight," UIC Assistant Coach Sean McDermott said. "He kept Sterling in check and gave us a chance to win."

    With the victory, UIC improves to 8-7 on the season, while the Warriors drop to 15-7 overall.

    "It was a good performance," McDermott said. "I liked our intensity, we took care of business and did what we needed to do."

    Junior second baseman Bryan Russo went 3-for-4 with two runs scored and an RBI to lead UIC offensively. The Flames also received two hits from shortstop Mike Bruszer (double), Justin Johnson (3 runs) and Brad Ryan (3 RBI, double).

    Flames catcher Luke Morajka also recorded his first career-hit and RBI on Tuesday night.

    UIC will be back in action on Wednesday night, as the Flames will square off with Lynn at 6:00 p.m. in Homestead, Fla.
