INDIANAPOLIS -- No one with the Quincy University baseball team will complain about going three for four.

That's exactly when the Hawks did this weekend, winning its first Great Lakes Valley Conference series of the year by splitting Sunday's doubleheader with nationally-ranked Indianapolis. QU won the opener 1-0 in 11 innings before No. 8 Indy bounced back to win the nightcap 4-2.

Scoreless through 10 innings in the opener, QU's Mitchell Broughton got the game-winning rally started with a one-out single and reached third on Nick Tindall's double down the left-field line. After Austin Drake was intentionally walked to load the bases, Ryan Richardson stroked a single to center field to plate Broughton.

QU relievers Matt Norton and Matt Fishman combined to get three outs in the 11th to preserve the victory.

Charles Kapala started for QU (8-5, 3-1 GLVC) and tossed seven scoreless innings. He struck out four, walked two and allowed five hits. Teddy Rule picked up the victory, allowing one hit over three innings of relief. He struck out four and walked one.

Richardson and Broughton both went 2 for 5.

In the nightcap, the Greyhounds (8-5, 1-3) took a 3-0 before the Hawks countered with two runs in the sixth inning. Broughton laced an RBI double and Tindall hit a run-scoring sacrifice fly to trim the lead to one. Indy got a run back in the bottom of the sixth to close things out.

Jake Wehde suffered the loss, going four innings and allowing two runs on three hits.
