The Pioneers took on the visiting Highlanders of Houghton college Monday afternoon and came out on top 9-7.

Despite being on the short end of a 3-0 lead through five innings, the Pioneers flipped the switch scoring three runs in the bottom of the fifth and another six runs in the bottom of the sixth to secure the victory.

Senior reliever Don Caccioppoli got the Win for the Pioneers, throwing an inning and two thirds where he only allowed one earned run on three hits and striking out three batters. Junior outflder Tom Carrigan went 2-3 at the plate with an RBI and two runs.

UC takes the field Tuesday afternoon for the finale of the series. First pitch scheduled for 3 p.m.
