ST. LOUIS, Mo.-- The University of North Dakota baseball team dropped the first two of a four-game set at Saint Louis Friday, falling 6-4 and 12-4. North Dakota is now 0-6 overall on the young season.

SAINT LOUIS 6, NORTH DAKOTA 4
Saint Louis struck first, scoring a single run in the bottom of the first inning in game one. UND answered with a run in the second on a triple by Zack Trygstad-- one of his five hits on the afternoon-- followed by an RBI base knock by Ryan Reese.

The Billikens (6-6) tacked on three in the bottom of the second to take a 4-1 advantage but UND immediately answered with three in the top of the next inning to put the score at 4-all. Taylor Petersen hit his fourth double of the season to score two and Reese later plated the third run.

It remained tied until the seventh inning when a two-run homer chased North Dakota starter Andrew Thome and Saint Louis hung on for the 6-4 win. Thome went 6.2 innings with six runs on nine hits and five strikeouts.

Trygstad had three hits in the opener while Reese and Jacob Threlkeld each tallied a pair of hits.
