DAVENPORT, Fla. — Wisconsin-Superior got the tying run to the plate in the top of the seventh inning but had to settle for a doubleheader split after Union College (N.Y.) held on for a 6-3 victory Saturday, March 19, in nonconference baseball action at Northeast Regional Park.

UWS took the first game 4-3 in dramatic fashion as Jordan Trimble’s single up the middle scored Iduan Nate and Max Howell to end the game. Christian Garcia added two hits and an RBI while Ryan Rodriguez tossed a seven-hitter with five strikeouts to get the win for the Yellowjackets.

Isaac Fugere had a hit and two RBIs in the second game to lead UWS (3-9) but reliever Jason Goldblum got him to strike out swinging with two men on base to end the game in the top of the seventh. Starter Chris Murdock allowed only three hits and struck out seven in six innings to get the pitching win for Union (1-1).

The Yellowjackets continue their Florida spring trip against Knox College (Ill.) at 9 a.m. Sunday at Northeast Regional Park.
