BUTLER BULLDOGS (6-23 overall, 2-7 HL)

  • Butler is in the midst of five home games in nine days. The Bulldogs, who defeated Wabash College on Tuesday, host UIC in a three-game Horizon League series over the weekend and SIU-Edwardsville next Wednesday.

  • Sophomore Luke Duncan continues to lead the Bulldogs at the plate, boasting a team-high .403 batting average, .452 slugging percentage and .479 on base percentage.

    CLEVELAND STATE VIKINGS (9-17 overall, 2-4 HL)

  • Cleveland State has won six of its last eight games. The stretch includes two victories over both Valparaiso and Case Western Reserve, and one over both Ohio and Eastern Michigan.

  • Senior Josh Hungerman has struck out a Horizon League-best 52 batters in 45 innings this season, raising his career total to 149 strikeouts.

  • Cleveland State hit .329 as a team in five games last week, while the CSU pitching staff held opponents to a .238 average over those same five games.

  • Senior Drew Fronczek earned his third save of the year by recording the final three outs in Saturday's second tilt vs. Valparaiso.

    MILWAUKEE PANTHERS (9-17 overall, 3-3 HL)

  • Milwaukee improved to 16-3 all-time in home openers with a 6-3 win over UIC on Friday. The Panthers played their first 21 games on the road this season.

  • Freshman Cameron Amsrud has appeared in 17 of 26 contests to this point in the season. He is on pace to set a single-season record for appearances. Amsrud is 2-0 with a 3.46 ERA.

    UIC FLAMES (12-15 overall, 7-2 HL)

  • Senior Adam Worthington, already a two-time Horizon League Pitcher of the Week in 2009, has allowed just five earned runs in his last 24 innings as a starter (1.88 ERA). The converted reliever also has 19 strikeouts in that span.

  • Senior Derrick Miramontes, who went from starter in 2008 to bullpen ace this season, has not allowed a run in his last seven appearances. During that span, he has gone 3-0 with three saves and 12 strikeouts in 13.2 IP.

  • In addition to owning UIC's top on-base percentage (.457 OBP), senior Brandon Harwell has been UIC's best hitter in Horizon League play thus far with a .455 average (10-for-22).

  • Junior Kyle Muhlsteff owns a nine-game hitting streak after posting a seven-game string earlier in the year.

    WRIGHT STATE RAIDERS (15-16 overall, 4-2 HL)

  • Wright State took a break from Horizon League play last weekend to face off with LeMoyne. WSU took two of three games in the series.

  • The Penguins now have a 2.96 ERA in nine Horizon League contests.
