    Box Score

    Detroit, Mich. - The University of Illinois at Chicago baseball team had to deal without the services of both head coach Mike Dee and third base coach Sean McDermott as both were tossed from the game in the top of the fourth inning in the Flames' contest against Detroit.

    The Flames, however, rallied behind assistant coaches Scott Stahoviak and Troy Stein and cruised to the 11-6 victory over the Titans at Campbell Complex on Friday afternoon.

    With the victory, UIC improves to 33-14 overall and 13-4 in Horizon League play, while the Titans fall to 14-25 on the campaign and 7-9 in league action.

    Junior outfielders J.P. Moran and J.P. Carey each led the offensive attack for the Flames on Friday. Moran went 2-for-4 with three RBI and a run scored, while Carey was 2-for-6 with three RBI and two runs scored.

    Sophomore lefthander Ryan Gehring picked up the victory for the Flames, as he scattered 12 hits, gave up six runs - five earned and struck out five batters in seven innings of work to improve to 7-3 on the season. Detroit starter Keith Astrauckas was tagged with the loss, giving up eight runs and 11 hits in seven innings.

    UIC took a 4-2 lead into the top of the fourth inning. Middle infielders Jordan DeVoir and Bryan Russo opened the frame with singles to put runners at first and third with no one out.

    Detroit catcher Dustin Wiley picked off DeVoir at third base, bringing out Dee from the dugout, who was subsequentially tossed from the game. McDermott later followed suit after a Nelson Gord double, which moved Russo over to third base.



    Carey stepped to the plate with runners at second and third and cleared the bases with a 2-run triple to give UIC the 6-2 advantage over the Titans.

    The Flames tacked on two more runs in the top of the fifth behind a RBI single from Russo and a sacrifice fly from Gord to put the game out of reach for Detroit.

    Both teams will square off again on Saturday morning with a doubleheader beginning at 11:30 a.m. (CST).
