MINNEAPOLIS — St. Scholastica sophomore Jake Schelonka helped shut down Augsburg 5-2 in the opener before the Auggies thumped CSS 10-2 in a seven-inning UMAC baseball doubleheader Friday at Parade Stadium.

Schelonka allowed only four hits and one earned run in the seven-inning opener, with 10 strikeouts and four walks. He also helped his cause with two hits and a run. Matt Tautges added a two-run double and Luke Schemenauer hit a solo home run and finished with two RBIs.

Austin Jerylo (6-2) didn’t allow an earned run in six innings in the rematch to lead Augsburg (12-19 overall, 4-10 UMAC) while Tim Lavin had three hits, two runs and three RBIs.

Cody Venske had two hits, including a double and a run, and Mitchell Novak had a hit and two RBIs for the Saints (11-15, 6-8).

With rain in the forecast, CSS is off until 2:30 p.m. Tuesday when the Saints play Gustavus Adolphus in a UMAC doubleheader in St. Peter, Minnesota.
