May 4, 2004
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.
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.
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.
