BROOKINGS, S.D. – South Dakota State scored runs in bunches, but had to survive some anxious moments in the late innings to come away with a 10-9 victory over North Dakota in non-conference baseball action Tuesday afternoon at Erv Huether Field. SDSU never trailed in the contest. SDSU starter Kolton Emery made his first appearance in more than a month, striking out three and walking one before exiting after throwing 30 pitches in 1 2/3 innings. Joe Erickson picked up the win after surrendering only one run over the next 1 2/3 innings. A.J. Anderson, the second of nine UND pitchers on the afternoon, took the loss after allowing four hits and two runs in the second inning. Jackrabbit closer J.D. Moore entered the game in the 9th inning and retired the only batter he faced for his fifth save of the season. The save also was the 23rd of Moore’s career, tying him with All-American Trever Vermeulen (23 saves from 2008-11) for the SDSU career record. SDSU held an 18-9 advantage in hits, highlighted by Paul Jacobson going 4-for-5 at the plate. Clary added three hits in four trips.
