DSU Defeats NCAA D1 University of North Dakota

TUCSON, AZ- The Dickinson State University Baseball Team defeated the University of North Dakota 4-3 in game two of the double header on Tuesday night. This is the first victory against a NCAA D1 program in Head Coach Jason Watson's four years at DSU.

"I am very proud of the way our guys played tonight. We battled all day. Even in game one, we had opportunities to win the ball game. This is a great win for our program and we are beginning to play some good baseball," Watson said.

GAME 2: DSU 4, UND 3

The Blue Hawks used six different pitchers to claim the victory. Joey Buchanan started the game on the mound going one inning allowing two hits and one walk. Jon Koessl threw the next two innings allowing three hits and one strikeout. Evan Loranger threw the fourth inning allowing two hits with one walk. T.J. Pogroszewski had the fifth inning allowing one run, a solo homerun, on two hits. Andrew Sampsel threw the sixth inning allowing no hits and allowing one walk. Tyler Czech was credited with the win while allowing two runs on four hits with two walks and three strikeouts.

"We are playing so many games in so many days down here thats why I decided to staff the game on the mound. The guys knew their job was to get three outs without allowing a run and their day was done. We had some freshman really step up and throw well," said Watson.

The Blue Hawk hitters were led by Ryan Mitchell who was 2-3 with a double, one run scored and an RBI. Jeff VanCleave was 2-4 with a double. Dylan Skabo and Landon Briscoe each had a hit and an RBI. Eric Seiler and John Hollingsworth also had a hit in the victory. The Blue Hawks scored the go-ahead run in the top of the ninth inning on a pass ball.
