PITTSBURGH – The University of Pittsburgh baseball team (17-6) used timely hitting and a complete game from Ethan Mildren (JR/Hopwood, Pa.) to beat Towson (13-11), 5-2, this afternoon in the first game of a double header at Cost Field at the Petersen Sports Complex.
Mildren (5-1) registered the win after pitching 9.0 innings, allowing six hits, one earned run while striking out six. Mike Volpe (3-2) took the loss for Towson.
