Game 2, A superb effort by Cory Winiecki (FR/Des Plaines, IL) spurred Illinois Institute of Technology to a 12-0 win over Finlandia University.

Illinois Institute of Technology got the win thanks in large part to Cory's dominant, 12-strikeout performance. Illinois Institute of Technology's pitcher tossed seven innings of shutout ball and allowed only six hits.

Six runs in the first three innings helped Illinois Tech blow out Finlandia University. A two-run double by Michael Malfeo, an RBI double by Brian Colon-Rodriguez (SO/Carolina, PR), a fielder's choice, and a two-run single by Austin Boos (SO/Indianapolis, IN) during the first inning fueled the early offense.

Malfeo racked up three RBIs on four hits for the night cap.

Gerard Taylor ended up on the wrong side of the pitching decision, charged with the loss. He allowed six runs in zero innings, walked two and struck out none.

Tech added four more runs in the bottom of the fifth. Boos kicked things off with a single, plating James Tarala (FR/Crown Point, IN).

IIT tacked on another two runs in the sixth. The inning got off to a hot start when Alex Babusci (JR/Park Ridge, IL) singled, bringing home Bill Cronin (JR/Orland Park, IL).
