DREW UNDERWAGER POSTGAME

HOW IT HAPPENED
- After starter Alex Prickett (Franklin, Wis.) worked out of jams in the first and second innings, Drew Underwager (South Elgin, Ill.) came on for the next five frames for the Falcons. Underwager was dominant in his five innings, allowing just one hit and struck out five while issuing one free pass. He earned his first career win with his five shutout innings.

- CUW scored one run each in the third, fourth, and eighth innings for its three runs in the game. Bryan Thomas (Lowell, Ind.) drove in the first run with a RBI triple plating Matt Schubert (West Bend, Wis.). Thomas, Schubert and Spencer Garnett (Clarendon Hills, Ill.) had the only hits of the game for the Falcons, each player collecting two.

- A Garnett RBI double made the score 2-0 in the fourth as he brought around Isaac Tewes (Chaska, Minn.). Thomas scored the final run of the game in the eighth on a sacrifice fly off the bat of Kyle Hilliard (Oak Forest, Ill.).
