The baseball team (3-3) picked up a series win at Santa Clara (3-4) after splitting a doubleheader Saturday at Schott Stadium.

The Flames dropped the second game, 10-3, but triumphed in the third match, 15-8.  UIC’s bats came alive as the team combined for 28 hits throughout both contests.

The team won its Friday match against Santa Clara, 5-3.

“We are very happy with the weekend,” head coach Mike Dee said. “Winning a series on the west coast in February is a tough thing to do. We took a big step forward at the plate this weekend and continued to play good defense.  This team has strong character that will undoubtedly continue to strengthen as the season progresses.”

The Flames return to action Friday, traveling to No. 2 Vanderbilt for a three-game series.
