WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY)–Toledo scored four runs in the 4th and 5th innings alone on Wednesday night leading the Rockets to the 5-3 win over UNCW baseball.
The Diamond Hawks got right back into the game in the bottom of the 6th inning. Trailing 5-1, Cole Weiss slapped a single right back up the middle scoring two to trim the lead down to two. UNCW would never get closer than that the rest of the way. The Toledo bullpen then threw 3.1 scoreless innings the rest of the way to lock down the victory.
Landen Roupp took the loss for the Seahawks on the mound. He threw four complete innings allowing three earned runs and striking out six. Axel Bueter picks up the win for the Rockets. He threw just four innings, but was nearly perfect. Bueter allowed just three hits and struck out two.
UNCW will try to get back in the win column on Thursday afternoon. Game two of the series is set for a 4:00 p.m. start from Brooks Field.
