    CHICAGO – The UIC baseball team defeated non-league opponent Edgewood College on Tuesday night in front of a home crowd by a final score of 7-1.  Sophomore catcher Alex Jurich paced the Flames at the plate, going 3-for-4 with two RBI and two runs, including a solo homer in the fourth inning.  Ryan Boss tallied a home run of his own in the fifth inning, his sixth on the season, which scored two.  UIC improves to 16-22 on the year and remains 9-9 in the Horizon League.

    The Flames got rolling in the first inning as Alex De LaRosa kicked things off with a single to left field.  He was pushed over to second base on a sacrifice bunt from shortstop Alex Lee and advanced to third on a groundout from Boss.  The next batter, Jon Ryan, sent De LaRosa home with an infield-single, giving the Flames an early 1-0 edge.

    UIC made it 2-0 in the second inning as Jacob McNamara was the first Flame to reach base on a hit pitch and was advanced to third on a hard hit single to right field.  McNamara was eventually sent home on a sacrifice fly to right field from Carl Sugihara, his first RBI on the season.

    The Eagles took a run back in the third inning, but the Flames shot ahead 5-1 in the fourth and fifth frames, courtesy of deep bombs of Jurich and Boss.  After Jurich’s blast in the fourth, Sugihara notched his first hit of the season with a single to right center field.

    UIC went on to add a pair of insurance runs in the seventh inning on an RBI-double from Jurich and an RBI-single from freshman Cody Dykema.  The score held true at 7-1 for the remainder of the contest.

    The Flames jump back into Horizon League action this weekend at Youngstown State, beginning on Friday at 2 p.m. CT.
