    Box Score

    Niles, Ohio - The University of Illinois at Chicago baseball team split a doubleheader for the second day in a row as Youngstown State earned a 6-4 victory in the opening game of the twinbill, while the Flames bounced back for the 11-5 victory in the nightcap at Cafaro Field on Sunday afternoon.

    With the split, UIC moves to 19-5 on the season and 2-2 in Horizon League play, while Youngstown State goes to 8-11 overall and 2-2 in the league.

    UIC held a 4-1 lead over Youngstown State heading into the sixth inning as the Penguins mounted a five-run rally, highlighted by center-fielder Kendall Schlabach's game-winning, two-run single for the victory.

    Junior Eric Xidis (Merrillville, Ind./Merrillville) took the loss in the opener as he allowed eight hits and six runs in 5 2/3 innings of work to drop to 3-3 on the season.

    Offensively, Andy Deahl (Wilmette, Ill./New Trier) and Mike Bruszer (Deerfield, Ill./Deerfield) each recorded two hits, while John Rosner (Ottawa, Ill./Marquette) added a two-run single.

    UIC's bats worked early and often in the nightcap as Rosner and Deahl, again, swung the big sticks for the Flames. Rosner was 2-for-4 with three RBI and two runs scored, while Deahl was 4-for-5 with two RBI and two runs scored.

    Junior catcher Kevin Nelson (Arlington Heights, Ill./Rolling Meadows) also enjoyed a big game at the plate as he went 2-for-5 with two runs scored and a RBI.

    Freshman southpaw Ryan Gehring (Burlington, Wis./Central Catholic) allowed five runs and scattered 10 hits in 8 2/3 innings of work to keep his record flawless at 4-0 on the season.

    UIC will be back in action on Tuesday evening, as they will travel to Peoria, Ill., to take on Bradley University at 6:05 P.M.
