FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Mounties Split with Minnesota-Duluth

FT. MYERS, FL -- The Mountaineer baseball team split a pair of games with Minnesota-Duluth on Thursday morning in Fort Myers, Florida.

In game one, the Mountaineers took a 5-2 lead after the top of the second but the Bulldogs responded with a four run second inning to pull away for the 11-7 victory.
