Chicago, Ill.- The UIC baseball team completed a dominating three-game sweep over Butler on Sunday, combining another offensive onslaught with a four-hit shutout of the Bulldogs in a 12-0 victory at Les Miller Field.

UIC (31-17, 20-6 Horizon League) sent its seniors out in style on Senior Day, pounding out 14 hits and scoring in double-digits for the fourth consecutive game to sweep the weekend and season series over Butler (17-30, 9-18 Horizon League).

Senior starter Ryan Martin improved to 4-1 in his final home start, throwing six shutout innings and allowing just three hits.

Two other seniors had solid days at the plate, as catcher Justin Johnson hit a three-run homer and first baseman Bryan Nolte went 2-for-2 with an RBI.

Senior hurler John Flood also got in on the action, picking up his first collegiate hit and RBI on a single to left center in the eighth inning that plated Bart Babineaux.

Leading 4-0 heading into the fifth, UIC scored nine runs in the final four innings to put the game out of reach.

The Flames scored 50 runs and tallied 60 hits during the three-game series against Butler. In the last four games UIC has scored 73 runs and tallied 86 hits.

After the game, UIC saluted its seniors with a ceremony honoring the contributions of Babineaux, Flood, Johnson, Martin, Nolte, Jason Foster and Ted Rosinski.

 

 

UIC closes out the regular season on a four-game road trip through Ohio, beginning this Wednesday with a non-conference contest at Toledo at noon Central.
