(Richardson) - Texas Lutheran senior outfielder Riley Schaefer homered three times, tying TLU and Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference single-game records, as the Bulldogs completed a three-game sweep of the University of Texas at Dallas with a 15-5 win late Saturday afternoon.

The Bulldogs took the early game of the day 5-0 and won on Friday night 8-1.

TLU had six home runs and 19 hits in the game-three victory. The six home runs for a single game are one off the school record of seven (a feat accomplished four previous times).

The Bulldogs came back from a 3-1 deficit after the first inning with a six-run second and a four-run third.

The late game, originally scheduled for nine innings, was called after seven innings due to the 10-run rule.

In the seven-inning early game, right-hander Nathan Malinovsky tossed a four-hit shutout for the Bulldogs.

The Bulldogs broke open a scoreless contest after five innings with a two-RBI single from sophomore right fielder Tyler Cauley.

Ben Marvin crossed home plate on an bases-loaded walk by Matthew Lemon. Cauley collect a second two-RBI single to drive in the final runs.

Malinovsky (3-1) did not allow a runner past second. The redshirt junior struck out five and walked two

In the late game, Drew Waller pitched five innings and allowed four runs (three earned). Waller improved to 3-0. The junior right-hander struck out three and walked one.

Chad Curtis' two-run home run sparked TLU in Friday's 8-1 series opening win.

Keaton Boysen made the first contact and singled up the middle. Curtis homered to left field to open scoring for TLU.

The Bulldogs held a 3-0 lead after the second inning, and added three more runs in the fifth from a bases-loaded walk and a two-RBI double from Eric Rabinowitz. Rabinowitz went 3-for-4 with a run scored.

Curtis plated another run for the Bulldogs off a Ben Marvin single up the left side. Cauley blasted a home run to left field to score the final run for the Bulldogs.

Senior right-hander Dylan Drgac tossed eight innings and moved to 5-1. Drgac surrendered a run in the eighth and scattered eight hits. He struck out six.
