EVANSVILLE, Ind. University of Southern Indiana senior right-hander Alex Thieroff (Greenfield, Indiana) led the 25th-ranked Screaming Eagles to a 6-2 win and 3-1 series victory over Drury University Sunday afternoon at the USI Baseball Field. USI raises its record to 17-6 overall, 7-1 GLVC, and 3-1 in the GLVC West Division, while Drury falls to 14-11, 5-3 GLVC, and 1-3 in the division.

Thieroff (1-0) pitched eight-plus innings to record his first win of the year and record the longest outing of his Eagle career. He pitched around nine hits, allowed one run, and struck out one. Sophomore right-hander Cody Brandenstein (Evansville, Indiana) finished the ninth for Thieroff, allowing two hits and one run in one inning of work.
