SIOUX FALLS, S.D. -- Augustana finished off its sweep of the Bemidji State baseball team on Sunday, beating the Beavers 13-2 in Sioux Falls, S.D.

The Vikings (17-4-1, 7-1 NSIC), who are receiving votes in the national poll, outscored the Beavers (3-19, 0-8 NSIC) by a 45-2 margin in the three-game series.

On Sunday, Augie raced out to a 10-0 advantage through six innings. BSU finally got on the board in the seventh when Parker Borg scored on a fielder’s choice, and Carter Simon later scored when he swiped home on a double steal.
