Box Score (Game 1)

Box Score (Game 2)

The University of Findlay Oilers baseball team won a pair of game against Urbana University on Tuesday, April 10th in Urbana, Ohio.

In game one, the Oilers scored five runs in the final inning, overcoming a two-run deficit to win 5-2. 

After a Dustin Zielaskiwicz leadoff double in the seventh, followed by a Blake Schmenk single, Riley Christian put the Oilers on the board with a single to center, scoring Zielaskiwicz.  Tommy Roush was then hit by a pitch to load the bases for Garrett Busch who singled in, what would be, the tying and winning runs.

Victor Migliore, Ross Tonyan, Zielaskiwicz and Busch each had two hits in the game.

Drew Hargrove picked up his third win of the season for Findlay, giving up two runs on five hits in six innings of work while striking out two.

In game two, the Oilers came from behind in the sixth inning to win 8-5 and sweep the doubleheader.

After back-to-back hits by Migliore and Dylan Cintula in the sixth, Eric Terwilliger's one-out RBI single put Findlay within one of the lead.  The next batter, Zielaskiwicz, tied the game on a fielder's choice, making the score 5-5.  After Schmenk walked, Christian put the game away with a two-run double, and later scored an insurance run on a Roush single.

Ethan James picked up his first win of the season, giving up four earned runs on five hits in six innings of work and struck out four.

With the two game sweep, the Oilers move to 12-17 on the year.  They will be back in action on Saturday, April 14th to take on Lake Erie in Painesville, Ohio.
