MMU Baseball Splits with Northern State

The Mount Marty University baseball squad downed Northern State 9-3 Tuesday at Riverside Field in game one of a twin bill, and the Wolves shut out the Lancers 4-0 in the second contest.  Mason Townsend of Yankton smashed a grand-slam homer for the Lancers, Colin Muth of Yankton doubled twice, and Blake Swoboda pitched the complete game victory in the opener.  Mount Marty is now 8-6 overall and will host Dakota Wesleyan Thursday at 2 PM in a nine-inning non-conference game.
