Baseball: Rothmund has 7-RBI day for Prairie Stars

Michael Rothmund, of Lombard, drove in seven runs over two games Sunday afternoon, helping the University of Illinois Springfield gain a split against visiting Lewis University.

UIS (16-19, 10-12 GLVC) lost the first game, 5-3, despite Rothmund’s 3-run homer, but turned around and beat the Flyers 7-3 in the second game thanks to four more RBIs from Rothmund on three singles.

In the second game, Gabriel Acevedo, Blake Thompson and Alex Bradley all hit RBI singles in support of pitcher Matt Farrington, who earned the win. Senior Kyle Schildroth pitched three innings to notch the save. UIS baseball will travel to McKendree on Tuesday.

The win was featured by The State Journal-Register on April 13, 2015.
