TUCSON, Ariz. (Keno Sports Complex) – The Bemidji State University baseball team fell 20-3 to Concordia University, St. Paul Saturday in a nonconference game in Tucson, Ariz. The loss ended the Beavers' spring trip and start to the 2014 season at 3-7.

The Golden Bears jumped out to a 9-0 lead through three innings after scoring two, five and two runs, respectfully. Bemidji State starter Jesse Katz (RHP, So., Deerfield, Ill.) suffered his first loss of the season after allowing nine runs (seven earned) on 11 hits in two and two-thirds innings.

CU added five in the fourth to open a 14-0 lead before the Beavers found two runs in the bottom half of the inning. BSU strung together four-straight singles to pick up the runs. The Golden Bears tallied a pair of runs in each of the final three frames to hit score 20. BSU recorded its final run in the sixth when junior catcher Jake Tuholsky (Big Lake, Minn.) singled to drive in senior outfielder Cole Bjorge (Prior Lake, Minn.), who had led off the inning with a double.

Tuholsky and Bjorge each totaled two hits, four of BSU’s 10 total hits. Bjorge scored two of the Beavers’ three runs. The five through nine hitters went 7-for-15 with three RBIs and two runs scored. The Golden Bears totaled 26 hits.

The Beavers continue nonconference play March 23-25 when they travel to Missouri and Kansas for five contests. The trip starts March 23 at Avila University with a single, nine-inning game.
