Monmouth 8, Univ. Chicago 7
Univ. Chicago 19, Monmouth 7 (8-16, 2-4)
Fresh off a double-header sweep of Knox, Monmouth split a Sunday twinbill with the University of Chicago, taking the opener 8-7, but falling in Game 2, 19-7. Trailing 7-3 in the fifth inning of Game 1, the Scots took advantage of a hit batsman and an error to put four runs on the board. Brad Winkler supplied the big blow with a two-run base hit to trim it to 7-6. Tom Shaver then tied the game at 7-7 with a sac fly. Tied in the bottom of the ninth with the bases loaded, Kyle Higginson singled in Brett Peterson with the winning run to give Phil Scott the win in relief. Monmouth never lead in Game 2, spotting the Maroons four first inning runs in the seven inning contest. Mitch Comstock and Caleb Ruyle drove in two runs each.
