NIU baseball: Huskies on wrong end of lopsided loss

The Northern Illinois baseball team struggled all day to get UIC catcher Rob Calabrese out.

Calabrese had a monster game and the Flames cruised to a 17-3 win over Huskies in a non-conference game on Tuesday at Ralph McKinzie Field in DeKalb.

Calabrese finished the day 5 for 6 with two home runs and eight RBIs for the Flames, who improved to 21-8 on the year. The Flames scored three runs in the first, along with five runs in both the second and eighth innings.

Mike Robinson went 3 for 4 with an RBI for the Huskies (9-23) in the loss, and Joe Jumonville was 2 for 3 and an RBI. Northern Illinois starts a home series against Kent State, starting at 3:05 p.m. Friday.
