Box Score

Chicago, Ill. - The University of Illinois at Chicago baseball team brought out the big sticks on Tuesday evening, as the Flames erupted for three home runs and nine runs in the first two innings, paving the way for the 11-2 non-conference victory over Western Michigan at Les Miller Field.

Sophomore left fielder Ted Rosinski went 3-for-3 with two homers and three RBI, while senior designated hitter Brad Ryan connected for a three-run homer in the bottom of the first inning.

Rosinski's two blasts ties a Les Miller Field record, set 10 times before, most recently by teammate Justin Johnson against Chicago State earlier this season.

With the victory, UIC improves to 28-14 overall, while the Broncos fall to 17-24 on the campaign.

The Flames also received two hits apiece from third baseman Nelson Gord (2 runs), catcher Mike Hughes (RBI, run) and first baseman Justin Johnson (2 runs, RBI).

UIC freshman Zach Peterson (1-0) earned the victory in his first career start for the Flames, retiring all six batters that he faced, including two strikeouts. Western Michigan starter Kurt Van Dyken (1-1) was tagged with the loss, allowing six runs in the first inning.

UIC will be back in action on Friday evening, as they will host Horizon League rival, Butler, at Les Miller Field at 7:00 p.m.
