ST. LOUIS, Mo.-- Saint Louis used a six-run seventh to claim a 10-0 win over visiting North Dakota at Lindenwood University Saturday afternoon. The back-to-aback Atlantic 10 champions have now taken the first three games of the series.
Billiken starter James Norwood threw a three-hit gem, allowing just three hits and one walk en route to his second win of the season. SLU (7-6) got a pair of runs in the second inning and two more in the fifth before opening the door with a six-run seventh.
UND's best opportunity came in the fifth when Sam Alt hit a two-out single up the middle and Luis Calvo followed with a base knock through the left side but a flyout ended the inning without further damage.
UND starter Zach Muckenhirn took the loss, allowing three earned runs over 5.1 innings with five strikeouts.
The teams finish out the series tomorrow at noon from Lindenwood University.
