Chicago, Ill. - Senior designated hitter Chuck Peters and junior outfielder J.P. Moran went a combined 5-for-10 with five RBI and three runs scored to help lead the University of Illinois at Chicago to the 10-0 non-conference victory over Chicago State at Les Miller Field on Wednesday evening.

Junior starter Eric Carlson (1-2) picked up the victory for the Flames as he, Marcus Goodman, Bill Bernabei, Charlie Hahn, Ryan Martin, Ryan Gehring and David Haehnel combined for the seven-hit shutout.
Chicago State starter Jason Stamper took the loss for the Cougars, allowing two runs and three hits in two innings of work to drop to 0-8 on the season.
