BEREA, Ky. - Senior shortstop Ryan Satterlee lined a pair of base hits in Tuesday's 14-4 win over host Berea (Ky.) in equaling the program record for consecutive games with a hit.

The Youngstown, Ohio, native has collected hits in each of the last 21 games, tying Kenny Kysar's 2007 record.

Satterlee will attempt to break the record Wednesday at 4 p.m. when the Bulldogs host Georgetown (Ky.).

Union raced out to an 8-0 lead before Berea cracked the scoring column en route to the 14-4 victory.

The win improves Union to 25-9 overall, while Berea had its six-game win streak snapped in falling to 9-20 overall.

The Bulldogs scored five in the first, two in the second and one in the third for an 8-0 advantage. The Mountaineers rallied for three runs in the bottom of the third to cut the deficit to five. However, Union collected two runs in the fourth and four in the fifth for a 14-3 cushion.

Berea scratched out a run in the seventh, but it was not enough to extend the game any longer as Union won 14-4.

Freshman left-hander Jacob Scalf (Barbourville, Ky.) went the distance in picking up the win, improving his record to 2-1 on the season. He struck out eight batters as well.

Offensively, freshman Josh Longbrake (St. Cloud, Fla.) belted a home run for the second game in a row as he went 3-for-5 with four RBIs. Brandon Hedrick (Corbin, Ky.) belted a 2-run home run and finished with three RBIs. He leads the team with six four-baggers on the year.
