DAYTON, Ohio – The University of Cincinnati baseball team scored a season-high 18 runs on 19 hits in an 18-4 drubbing over the University of Dayton on Tuesday afternoon at UD’s Time Warner Cable Field. The 18 runs is the most for Cincinnati since scoring 20 in a win over Chicago State on March 10, 2012.

“I am proud of our guys’ toughness” said head coach Ty Neal. “We have played 10 games in 12 days with seven on the road. I asked this club to play the game hard every pitch and they have given maximum effort in all 10 of those games. They are showing the grit that it takes to compete for a championship. Today we were unselfish in everything we did and the end result was pretty good”

With the win, Cincinnati climbs to 5-10 on the season while Dayton falls to 3-11.

Four Bearcats players recorded three hits on the day, including sophomores Ian Happ (Pittsburgh, Pa./Mt. Lebanon), Russell Clark (Wexford, Pa./Pine-Richland) and Devin Wenzel (Blandon, Pa./Fleetwood Area) and freshman Jake Richmond (Cincinnati, Ohio/Oak Hills).  Richmond’s three hits are a new career-high for the first baseman, doubling his career total to date.

Freshman Connor McVey (Mason, Ohio/Mason) collected two hits and scored a team-high four runs. Wenzel recorded five RBIs.

The Bearcats’ offense exploded for 13 runs and 14 hits through the first three innings of the game. UC seemingly could do no wrong, teeing off pitch after pitch to set a new season high for runs scored only nine outs into the game. Twelve men came to bat in an eight-run, eight-hit second inning to highlight the rally for Cincinnati.

Clark had a hit in all three innings to score two runs and collect two RBIs. Wenzel smashed two doubles for four RBIs through three innings and Happ collected two hits and scored three runs.

Pitcher Mitch Patishall (Pendleton, Ind./Pendleton Heights) got himself into a bit of a jam in the bottom of the third inning, loading the bases with no outs. A flyout, single and double brought four runs home for the Flyers, but Patishall induced two ground outs to end the inning with a nine-run lead still intact for the Bearcats.

Cincinnati continued to pour on the offense, tacking on an additional run in the third, fourth and fifth innings. Wenzel added to his hot hitting with a solo-homerun over the left field fence in the fifth inning to give the Bearcats a 15-4 lead. The blast was the first of the season for Wenzel and the fifth of his career.

In case 15 runs wasn’t enough, the Bearcats added three more in the eighth. Two straight Dayton fielding errors brought one run home and senior Justin Glass (Fort Wayne, Ind./Carroll) doubled to right field to bring home two more.

Patishall eventually settled into the game, going a season-high 7.0 innings and setting a new career high with six strikeouts. The sophomore gave up seven hits and four runs to earn the win and improve to 1-3 on the season.

Austin Woodby (Springboro, Ohio/Springboro) entered the game in the eighth inning and pitched 2.0 innings of solid baseball. The freshman allowed just two hits, one run, zero earned runs and struck out two batters.

The Bearcats return to Marge Schott Stadium for a three-game series with The University of Akron on March 14, 15 and 16. The first game of the series is scheduled for Friday, March 14 at 4 p.m.
