    Box Score

    Indianapolis, Ind. - Butler hurler Matt Byzet held off a late rally by the University of Illinois at Chicago baseball squad and earned the complete-game, six-hit victory as the Bulldogs picked up the 4-3 Horizon League victory over the Flames in the nightcap of Saturday's doubleheader at Bulldog Park.

    Byzet improved to 2-2 on the season and struck out one batter on the afternoon. UIC reliever Ryan Hopkins (1-3) was tagged with the loss, surrendering one run and four hits in three innings of work.

    With the victory, Butler improves to 14-25 overall and 2-5 in Horizon League play, while the Flames fall to 23-17-1 on the campaign and 5-6 in conference action.

    UIC freshman first baseman Mark Hallberg went 1-for-4 with a double and a RBI, while teammates Bryan Nolte (1-for-3, RBI) and Shane Crowder (1-for-1, 2 runs) each turned in solid efforts at the plate for the Flames.

    Butler took a 4-2 lead into the seventh inning, as Crowder drew a walk to begin the frame and moved over to second base on a Byzet wild pitch. Hallberg plated Crowder with a RBI double, narrowing the Bulldogs' lead to 4-3.

    Hallberg moved over to third base on a two-out, wild pitch, but was stranded, as Byzet induced senior third baseman Bryan Russo into a game-ending groundout.

    Butler senior outfielder Dale Mueller was perfect at the plate in game two, going 4-for-4 with two runs scored. Bulldogs' shortstop Joe Pauley added two hits and a RBI in the win.

    UIC and Butler will conclude the four-game set at 12:00 p.m. (CST) on Sunday afternoon at Bulldog Park.
