    Waco, Texas- Four UIC players were named to the QTI Baylor Classic All-Tournament Team after the final game ended on Sunday afternoon.

    Starting pitcher Derrick Miramontes, catcher Kevin Coddington, outfielder Steve McGuiggan and infielder Tony Altavilla were chosen to the event's all-tournament squad.

    Miramontes gave up just one hit in 5.2 innings of work in a no-decision against 13th-ranked Baylor on Saturday.

    Coddington went 5-for-12 at the plate in three starts as one-half of the Flames' battery. The junior catcher hit three doubles and drove in a pair of runs.

    McGuiggan hit .500 (5-for-10) during the weekend, with a double, a homer and three RBI to his credit en route to a unanimous selection to the all-tournament team.

    Altavilla also batted .500 with a 4-for-8 performance over the course of the three-day classic, driving in two runs and hitting two doubles.

    UIC went 2-1 during the QTI Baylor Classic, with its only loss being a one-run defeat to the nationally-ranked Bears on Baylor's home field.

    The Flames scored 20 runs during the Classic, highlighted by a 9-3 win over Stephen F. Austin and a 7-4 win over Illinois.
