WVU Baseball Beats Youngstown State 5-1 at Hawley Field


West Virginia put a stop to a three-game road losing streak with some home cooking at Hawley Field on Wednesday night.

The Mountaineers put together a strong performance behind starting pitcher Brock Dykxhoorn, beating Youngstown State 5-1 in front of 733 fans.

WVU (18-16) got started early when sophomore Taylor Munden stepped up to the plate as the lead-off batter in the first inning and cranked a solo shot over the left field wall to give the home team a one-run advantage.

Munden, who played right field in the game, finished a single shy of the cycle, going 3-of-5 with two RBIs and two runs while junior third baseman Ryan Tuntland added another three hits.

In the bottom of the seventh inning of a 2-1 game, junior Matt Frazer gave the Mountaineers some cushion with a bases loaded single that scored two more runs and extended the lead to three.

Freshman pitcher Brock Dykxhoorn (2-0) went six innings, allowing one run on three hits.

The Mountaineers have not lost in any of the seven games they've played in Morgantown, which Wednesday night's being the last of the season. Up next is a trip to Liberty for a three-game weekend series that will be streamed live on ESPN3.com.
