MARSHALL -- The Bemidji State baseball team split a Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference doubleheader Wednesday at Southwest Minnesota State.
BSU won the first game 8-4 and lost the second game 8-0.
BSU's six through nine hitters in the combined for six of the 11 hits, five of the seven RBIs and two of the eight runs in the first game.

Senior catcher Dan Bennett, batting eighth, posted his third two-hit game of the season, adding an RBI.
Batting ninth was junior Doug Peterson and he went 1-for-3 with one run scored.
Down 4-2 after five innings, the Beavers put a run on the board in the sixth, seventh and eighth innings to take a 5-4 lead heading into the ninth frame. The Beavers added three insurance runs in the bottom half of the inning to secure the win.
Ethan Branum pitched the final two innings for BSU and earned the decision.
Game two didn't go as smooth for BSU as it suffered its second shutout of the season.
