The Dakota Wesleyan University baseball team split with Mayville State University in a nonconference doubleheader Wednesday at Cadwell Park in Mitchell.

DWU's Tim Cusick hit a grand slam in the first inning of game one, propelling the Tigers to a 15-7 win.

"(Cusick) was really locked in that first game and did a great job for us," DWU coach Steve Gust said. "We hit the ball right away and didn't let them get back in the game."

The Tigers (16-13) scored seven runs in the first inning and recorded runs in five innings.

Cusick and Cody Silveria had three hits apiece and recorded five and four RBIs, respectively.

Lucas Schultz was the winning pitcher and allowed four runs on five hits in two and 1/3 innings pitched.

The Comets won game two 19-3. Johnny Pistulka was 4-for-5 from the plate with seven RBIs for MSU.

DWU's Kevin Hatcher took the loss on the mound, allowing two runs on two hits in one inning pitched.

"We didn't pitch well and you can't beat good baseball teams when you give away free passes on the mound," Gust said.

The Tigers host Nebraska Wesleyan in a Great Plains Athletic Conference doubleheader Saturday at 1 p.m. at Cadwell Sports Complex.
