After playing more than 30 games on the road, the University of Minnesota Duluth baseball team finally got the chance to back home for their home opener against Concordia-St. Paul.

The Bulldogs dropped the first game 11-7 but looked to split the series even. The Bears would get on the board first with a single by Bryce Nelson, leading to Noah Juliar scoring. The Bears scored 12 unanswered runs throughout three innings until a ground ball by Tosten Mann allowed a run to score for the Bulldogs just run of the game.

UMD tacked on five more runs in the fifth inning but came up short in the end, falling to the Bears 18-6. UMD will hit the pitch again on Wednesday, April 19th, in a doubleheader against Bemidji State, with the first game at 1:30 pm and the second game set for 3:30 pm.
