UIC Flames Athletics

Jeremiah Paprocki | Posted on May 07, 2019

This week in UIC Flames Athletics we cover the bat sports as the academic sports season comes to a close for the summer.

UIC Softball clinched its fifth-straight regular season title last week following a series sweep at Youngstown State. The Flames outscored the Penguins 29-5 in the three-game set, completing their second-straight Horizon League series sweep and matching their season-best eight-game win streak.

UIC Softball continues to be the Horizon League’s top offensive team, leading the conference with a .325 team batting average, a mark that puts them at No. 13 in the nation. The Flames have had no shortage of runs, outscoring Horizon League opponents by a 185-68 margin so far. UIC has scored 10 or more runs in nine of its conference matchups, averaging 8.8 runs per game in Horizon League play. The Flames are slugging .512 as a squad, good for 22nd in the nation, and their .402 team on-base percentage ranks 25th in the country.

UIC Baseball will look to climb up the Horizon League standings this weekend as it opens a seven-game homestand with an important three-game series against Horizon League rival Milwaukee. The set begins at Granderson Stadium on Friday, May 3 at 4 p.m., and continues with single games on Saturday and Sunday.

UIC Baseball has won eight consecutive games against Milwaukee, including two in the 2018 Horizon League Tournament. Overall the Flames have been victorious in 14 of the last 16 games against MKE dating back to April 16, 2016.
