GRAND FORKS, N.D. - In the opening game of the 2011 Great West Conference Baseball Tournament, top-seeded Utah Valley used a scattering of well-placed singles to defeat No. 8 Chicago State, 13-3, after just eight innings.

After retiring the first four CSU batters, the Wolverines opened the game with three runs in the first on a trio of singles to the left side. They added another four runs in the third with the help of a centerfield triple by right fielder Billy Burgess to score three. Burgess then rounded home to give UVU a 7-0 lead heading into the fourth.

Following a solo homerun by UVU centerfielder Chris Benson on the fourth inning, the bats went cold for both teams for two innings.

In the top of the seventh inning, Chicago State used a string of singles to put three runs on the board. The late game rally came too late as UVU brought in another run in the seventh and four in the eighth to call the game early and advance to quarterfinals.

UVU's winning pitcher Jeremy Gendlek (7-3) fanned two batters and walked just one. CSU's Dylan Sterrett (2-7) took the loss after allowing seven runs on seven hits during the first 2.1 innings of play.

Utah Valley will now face the winner of No. 4 NYIT and No. 5 NJIT tomorrow at 4 p.m.
