University of Southern Indiana Baseball had rebound in the nightcap to earn a doubleheader split with the University of Indianapolis Saturday at the USI Baseball Field. The Greyhounds took the opener, 4-0, while the Screaming Eagles won the nightcap, 7-5.

The Eagles go to 22-17 overall and 18-13 GLVC, while the Greyhounds end the contest 18-17, 16-11 GLVC.

Game 1:
USI allowed four runs in the second inning and dropped the opener, 4-0, to start the afternoon. The Eagles were unable to get anything going in the contest, generating only three hits.

Eagles' senior right-hander Jacob Bowles was tagged with the loss for the Eagles. Bowles (4-3) permitted four runs, two earned, on six hits and four walks, while striking out four.

Game 2:
USI bounced back in the nightcap to defeat UIndy, 7-3. The Eagles scored one in the third and fourth and five in the sixth for the win.

The Eagles put their first tally across the plate in the third when freshman designated hitter Gavin McLarty drove in junior shortstop Ethan Hunter on a fielder's choice. Hunter would push the USI lead to 2-0 in the fourth with a sacrifice fly, scoring freshman first baseman Adam Wildeman.

After the Greyhounds cut the USI margin in half with a tally in the fifth, the Eagles exploded for five runs in the bottom of the sixth to seal the win. Hunter ignited the surge with a two-run single to give USI a 4-1 advantage, while senior catcher Wyatt Daly capped of the frame with a three-run double for the 7-1 lead.

Both Hunter and Daly finished the nightcap by going two-for-three with a team-best three RBIs each.

The Greyhounds sliced the Eagles' lead once more in the seventh with a pair of two-run home runs before USI could close out the 7-5 victory.

On the mound, senior right-hander Austin Gossmann started and picked up the win. Gossmann (3-5) went five-plus innings, allowing one run on four hits and two walks. The senior right-hander also struck out a season-high nine Greyhounds.

Senior right-hander Tyler Hagedorn got Gossmann and the Eagles out of a jam in the sixth, but was tagged for the four runs in the seventh. The Eagles closed out the game with freshman right-hander Carter Stamm, who got the final two out for his first USI career save.

Up Next for the Eagles:
The Eagles and the Greyhounds concludes the four-game series Sunday for Senior Day at noon. USI will honor 11 seniors at 11:40 a.m. prior to the start of the game.
