Minnesota Duluth scored 9-3 and 12-5 victories over Minot State in an NSIC doubleheader on Sunday at Bulldog Park in Duluth to remain atop the conference with six games remaining in the regular season.
Senior third baseman Kyle Comer hit three home runs on Sunday for UMD (31-9 overall, 24-4 NSIC), which also swept a home doubleheader against the Beavers (7-30, 4-19) on Saturday. Comer finished the four games 9-for-16 (.563) with five homers, two doubles, 13 RBIs and 11 runs scored.
Junior outfielder Grant Farley and freshman outfielder Cory Krolikowski each hit two home runs, all in the 12-5 Game 2 win Sunday.
Junior pitcher Kevin Stocke allowed just four hits in six innings for UMD in the 9-3 opener. He struck out six batters and while he allowed three runs to put the Bulldogs down 3-0 in the first inning, all three were unearned thanks to a pair of errors.
Sophomore pitcher Tommy Hanson struck out nine in five innings while giving up four earned runs on four hits for the Game 2 win.
The regular season concludes for UMD this week with a doubleheader at 4 p.m. on Wednesday at third-place St. Cloud State and doubleheaders at 1:30 p.m. on Friday and at noon on Saturday against Mary at Bulldog Park in Duluth.
