GRAND FORKS, N.D.-- Seattle rebounded from giving up a five-run lead to score the final five runs unanswered in a 12-9 Western Athletic Conference series finale Sunday afternoon at Kraft Field. The Redhawks had jumped out to a 7-2 advantage before a six-run fourth put UND on top but SU countered with a three-run sixth to take the lead for good.

"We played with energy, we just left too many baserunners," UND head coach Jeff Dodson said. "The inning we scored six, we put balls in play and kept battling with hits in good counts, we just didn't do too much after that. We've got to get set to play at North Dakota State Tuesday."

Seattle (20-19, 9-7 WAC) struck first with a single tally in the first but North Dakota had the answer in the bottom of the frame. An RBI single to left by Jeff Campbell plated the first run and Ryan Reese's bases-loaded walk put UND (8-20, 8-7) in front, 2-1.

The lead was short-lived as SU posted a pair in the second and four more in the third to mount a 7-2 lead through two-and-a-half. North Dakota scored one without the benefit of a hit in the third before the six-run explosion in the fourth.

In that inning, UND sent 11 batters to the plate, starting with a leadoff single by Jacob Threlkeld. Daniel Lockhert and Taylor Petersen followed with one-out singles and Campbell drove in a run with a sacrifice fly. Reese singled to score another run and the big blow of the inning was a two-run double by Dalton Parrott to reclaim the lead in UND's favor, 8-7. Luis Calvo drove in another with a single to left and Threlkeld hit his second single of the inning but Seattle eventually got out of the inning trailing, 9-7.

From there, the Redhawk bullpen did the job to quiet the UND bats. Garrett Anderson threw 88 pitches in relief, scattering just two hits over the final 5.1 innings to get the win.

Campbell took the loss for UND, going 6.1 innings with 11 runs with five strikeouts and two walks.

Four different North Dakota hitters had two hits with Lockhert, Petersen, Reese and Threlkeld all turning the trick. Lockhert drew a pair of walks to reach base four times, scoring on three of those occasions.

North Dakota now prepares to head to Fargo, N.D. to battle arch-rival North Dakota State on Tuesday. The game is set for a 6:30 p.m. start from Newman Outdoor Field.
