AUBURNDALE, FL (UWSP)  - The bats were busy at Lake Myrtle Field on Monday, and when the dust cleared UW-Stevens Point Pointers had a 19-14 win over the Tigers of DePauw.  

Box Score

There were 33 hits, including nine extra base hits in the game. UWSP hit three home runs in the win when Dan Douglas (East Troy, WI/East Troy) homered in the second inning, Sean Gerber(Stoughton, WI/Stoughton) homered in the fifth inning, and Riley Spetz (Sevastopol, WI/Sevastopol) homered in the eighth inning. 

Spetz racked up three RBIs on four hits for the Pointers, singling in the fourth and fifth innings, doubling in the seventh inning, and homering in the eighth inning. Even though Brad Stroik (Stevens Point, WI/SPASH) allowed six runs over five innings he still recorded the victory.
