NIU baseball rallies in ninth to defeat UIC

The Northern Illinois baseball team scored five runs in the top of the ninth inning of Tuesday’s 8-7 win at Illinois-Chicago.

The big blast was a three-run homer by Landon Tenhagen (2-15-1). The Huskies (2-15-1) had given up five runs in the bottom of the eighth and trailed 7-3 entering the final frame.

Ben Neumann earned the win for NIU, throwing two innings without giving up an earned run.

“We had good hitting throughout the game today, putting guys in scoring position with the exception of the third and eighth innings,” NIU head coach Ed Mathey said in a news release. “We didn’t do enough to separate the game early and UIC broke out its long game in the eighth to take the lead. Our goal was to get the tying run to the plate and see what happens, and Landon delivered with a home run to score the winning run.”
