— UW-Whitewater suffered its first loss in Wisconsin Intercollegiate Athletic Conference baseball and second overall Wednesday at UW-Platteville.

The Warhawks (19-2, 7-1) bowed 8-4 to the Pioneers after extending their winning streak to 14 games with a 12-2 win in the opener.


Despite the loss, the Warhawks remain in first place in the WIAC race, leading UW-Stevens Point by one game.


Starter Jason Hooper, who tossed a no-hitter over UW-Stout last Sunday, wasn’t close to that against the Pioneers, getting chased after one inning. Hooper allowed two runs in the first.


Platteville led 6-2 after three innings and 8-2 after seven innings. The Pioneers touched four Warhawk pitchers for 12 hits, including a home run.


UW-W, ranked third in the nation, play two doubleheaders at UW-La Crosse on Saturday and Sunday. Both days’ action starts at noon.
