Lynn Comes From Behind For 9-4 Victory Over Baseball In 10 Innings|
March 24, 2004
Homestead, Fla. - The University of Illinois at Chicago baseball team was unable to hold onto a three-run lead as Lynn University posted five runs in the top of the tenth to rally for the 9-4 non-conference victory in extra innings over the Flames at the Homestead Challenge in Homestead Stadium on Wednesday night.
Junior reliever Charlie Hahn (1-2) took the loss for the Flames, allowing six runs and eight hits in three innings of work.
"We had no hitting and no pitching tonight," Assistant Coach Sean McDermott said. "We lacked aggressiveness and we just didn't perform well offensively."
With the victory, Lynn improves to 13-18 on the season, while the Flames fall to 8-8 overall.
Senior Mike Hughes (2-for-4) set the school record for triples on Tuesday night with his 11th-career three-bagger in the bottom of the sixth-inning. The Flames also received two hits apiece from both Shane Crowder (RBI) and Mike Bruszer (RBI, run).
UIC will be back in action on Friday afternoon, as they will open their home campaign against Chicago State at 3:05 p.m. at Les Miller Field.
