Benedictine's baseball squad split a Northern Athletics Conference doubleheader at Rockford College, losing the opener by a 3-0 score before taking the second game, 6-3. The Eagles are now 11-14 overall and 5-7 in the NAC. Garrett Follmuth went seven complete innings in the first game in absorbing the loss. Follmuth allowed seven hits and two runs. The Eagles managed just three hits versus Regents' ace Fabian Gomez. Benedictine batters were fanned 11 times by Gomez in the game. Dan Glennon, Anthony Carioscia and Brendan Keane each had singles to account for the sum total of the Eagles' offense. In game two, senior hurler Mark Erickson gave another strong performance with seven complete innings and giving up five hits. Erickson allowed two runs, only one of which was earned, and struck out seven with no walks. Neither team had an extra-base hit in the game, but Benedictine managed to mold its five hits and four walks into the six runs. Senior firstbaseman Matt Evans was 2-for-4 with two runs scored to lead the Eagles.
