STEVENS POINT, Wis. – Ryan Schilter (West Bend, WI/West) hit a pair of home runs and the UW-Stevens Point baseball team's pitching staff held UW-Superior to just four total runs as the Pointers won both ends of a doubleheader Saturday afternoon, 10-0 and 21-4 (7 inn.).
UW-Superior (14-9, 7-11 WIAC) was the designated home team for both games.
The Pointers (22-7, 10-4 WIAC) plated five runs in the second inning and starting pitcher JP Feyereisen (River Falls, WI/River Falls) tossed seven shutout innings while allowing only five hits and striking out five.
Jimmy Coady (La Crosse, WI/Aquinas) led off the second inning by reaching on an error and Riley Spetz (Sevastopol, WI/Sevastopol) followed with a bunt single. Casey Barnes (Mequon, WI/Homestead) loaded the bases when he laid down a bunt and reached on an error, and Bryton Guckenberg (Trego, MT/Lincoln County) promptly followed with an RBI single.
With the bases still loaded, Nick Douglas (East Troy, WI/East Troy) doubled to center field to score two runs, and Clint Rose (Watertown, WI/Watertown) followed with a two-run single to put UWSP ahead 5-0.
The Pointers held an 8-0 lead in the eighth inning when Schilter launched a solo home run to left field.
Schilter, Sean Gerber (Stoughton, WI/Stoughton) and Spetz each collected four hits as UWSP posted its highest single-game run total of the season in its 21-4 win.
UWSP scored three runs in the top of the first inning, but the Yellowjackets stayed within reach by plating two runs in the bottom of the frame.
However, the Pointer offense scored six runs in the second inning and six more in the third to take a 15-2 lead.
