UW-Stevens Point falls to UW-Oshkosh, Pointers eliminated from WIAC Tournament

Posted:

On Day 2 of the Wisconsin Intercollegiate Athletic Conference Tournament, the UW-Stevens Point baseball team fell in an elimination game to UW-Oshkosh, falling 8-7 in La Crosse, Wis.

UW-Oshkosh (19-20-1) got to an early 4-run lead, until the Pointers got the bats going in the bottom of the fifth.  A Ryan Stanicek single scored one and an error brought Clint Rose to third. Ben Diedrick singled to score two more for the Pointers before the inning's end cutting the Titan lead to one.

The Titans scored three more in the top of the seventh extending their lead heading into the seventh inning stretch. The Pointers responded, however, as Diedrick and Cody Hanke had a pair of RBIs in the bottom half of the seventh, cutting the Titans lead to just two.

The Pointers gave up one more in the top of the ninth. In the bottom frame, Hanke had an RBI single, but in the end, the Pointers were never able to get out in front. The Pointers season ends with a .500 record, at 21-21.
