— UW-Whitewater spilt a doubleheader Sunday with visiting UW-Stevens Point in WIAC baseball.

The Warhawks (20-13, 10-8) endured a 13-0 defeat in the opener, but came back to post a 6-4 victory in the second game.


Whitewater rallied for three runs in the seventh inning to erase a 4-3 deficit and win Game 2. The Warhawks were blanked on two hits in the opener, which was halted after seven innings by the 10-run rule.


Matt Beyer, a Janesville Parker graduate, singled home pinch-hitter Michael Gonzales, a Delavan-Darien graduate, to start the Warhawks’ rally in the seventh. Dylan Friend doubled home Gonzalez to give Whitewater the lead for good.


Reliever Mike Huckabay (1-1) allowed four hits, but blanked the Pointers through the final 3 2/3 innings to earn the victory. Point left 13 runners stranded.


In the opener, Whitewater starter Kyle Stewart (7-2) was tagged for five runs—four earned—on seven hits in four innings to take the loss. Pointer starter Cam Seidl (5-1) allowed two hits through seven for the win.


Whitewater hosts Stevens Point in a doubleheader at 1 p.m. today.
