Dakota State Baseball split a pair of games against No. 7 Bellevue in a doubleheader Thursday at Flynn Field. The Bruins used a seven-run fifth inning to win the opener by the score of 16-7, which included an hour-long lightning delay in the bottom of the fifth inning. The Trojans rallied back in the nightcap in a wild pitch walk-off 10-9 victory to earn a split in the battle of the conference’s top two teams in baseball.
Dakota State, who already secured the No. 2 seed for the upcoming North Star baseball postseason tournament next weekend in Forest City, Iowa, recorded its first-ever victory over NAIA’s Top 10 team in program history.
The Trojans raised their overall record to 29-14. That’s the most wins in a season since 2007 when Dakota State had a school record 38 victories.
Both teams wrap up their regular-season schedule with another doubleheader Friday. First game is set for 11 a.m. DSU will hold their Senior Day at Flynn Field.
