UST Notes
by Gene McGivern, UST SID

The St. Thomas baseball team , ranked 14th nationally, won four close home games last Monday and Tuesday to extend its winning streak to 15 -- three off the school record of 18 consecutive wins set in 1997... The Toms, 19-3 overall and 4-0 in the MIAC, are 12-2   in games decided by two or less runs... The Toms played error-free baseball Monday and won a pair of one-run decisions vs. Wisconsin-Stout. The Toms escaped 5-4 and 1-0 (nine innings). They came back Tuesday to top No. 23-ranked St. Olaf 2-0 and 4-3...

In moving atop the MIAC standings at 4-0, UST pitchers have fanned 28 and walked only two while allowing just seven runs in four games... The Toms face another MIAC title contender Sunday with a 1 p.m. double-header at Concordia-Moorhead. They also host Gustavus next Wednesday (2:30 p.m. doubleheader), play next Thursday at Concordia-St. Paul (3:30 p.m. nine-inning game) and play two April 24 at Carleton (1 p.m.)... UST has won 31 of its last 32 MIAC road games... Chris Olean (SR-Mpls./ Washburn) threw a four-hit shutout with no walks and nine strikeouts to beat St. Olaf. Olean is now 4-0 on the season (13-1 in MIAC career decisions) with an 0.55 ERA and 48 strikeouts and only one walk in 33 innings... Ryan Hartung (SR-Apple Valley/Rosemount) had two doubles and  scored both UST runs. Matt Faulken (SR-St. Paul/ Central) had an RBI single in the first then left the game with a pulled muscle... In game two, Rich Swenson (SR-Maple Grove/Osseo) -- who missed five games with a pulled muscle -- hit a solo homer in the fifth inning to tie the score 2-2, then knocked in the game-winning run with a double in the sixth inning... Jake Mauer (SO-St. Paul/Cretin-Derham Hall) also had a key RBI hit in the fifth inning... Ryan Nelson (SO-Fargo, N.D./South) fanned four in 2 2-3 innings of relief to  get the win and climb to 5-1 on the year. Mike Honsa (JR-Mendota Heights/Cretin-Derham Hall) worked 4 1-3 innings and allowed six hits and two runs... In the wins over Stout, UST led game one 4-0 early before Stout came back to forge a 4-4 tie. In the bottom  of the sixth, after a two-out error gave the Toms runners at first and second, Nate Sundberg (SO-Red Wing) delivered what turned out to be the game-winning RBI single. Nelson pitched 2 2-3 innings in relief of starter Mike Wilfahrt (SR-West St. Paul/Henry Sibley) to get the victory... In game two, UST lefthander Bryan Edstrom  (FR-Maple Grove/Totino-Grace) threw a one-hit shutout with 10 strikeouts for seven innings before being relieved. Tom Kelly (JR-St. Paul/Hill-Murray) came on to pitch two scoreless innings and get the victory. UST scored the game's only run in the bottom  of the ninth. Paul Rafferty (JR-St. Paul/Cretin-Derham Hall) and Sundberg singled, Dan Novak (JR-West St. Paul/Henry Sibley) was walked intentionally to load the bases with none out. After a short fly out, Faulken had a pinch-hit single scored the winning run... The Toms also scored a 16-2 win in a nine-inning non-conference game with Concordia-St. Paul April 8. The 15-hit attack was keyed by five home runs. Sundberg had a homer and three singles; Brad Bonine (FR-Rosemount) homered and doubled in his first two collegiate at-bats; Steve Aronson (JR-Minnetonka), Faulken and Rafferty also hit home runs... In four MIAC games, Hartung is batting .538 (7-for-13) with six doubles and a homer and seven runs scored; Ray Noble (SR-Mpls./Washburn) is hitting .583
(7-for-12); and Faulken is batting .556 (5for-9).
