Minnesota Duluth closed its Florida trip Wednesday by falling 6-1 to Wayne (Mich.) State in Kissimmee.
The Bulldogs (2-5) scored the first run in the bottom of the first inning on senior first baseman Tyler Wojciechowski's sacrifice fly that brought home senior Cory Krolikowski.
Junior right fielder Drew Stewart had two of UMD's six hits, including a double, but Wildcats pitcher Dillon McInerny was tough, striking out 12 and walking only one.
Wayne State (13-3) took the lead for good with a pair of runs in the top of the second and added two more in the fourth off freshman Aaron Wukmir, who was making his collegiate debut.
The Bulldogs are scheduled to open NSIC play this weekend with a pair of doubleheaders at Upper Iowa University.
