Idaho State split Saturday’s doubleheader against Utah State at Halliwell Park. The Bengals won 8-7 in the opener before losing 8-0 in the nightcap.

The Bengals scored four runs in the bottom of the seventh to win game one. Bryan Celis drew a walk, scoring Thomas Riley to win the game 8-7. Riley had a two-RBI double to tie the game 7-7 earlier in the frame.

“It was a gritty battle the entire time,” ISU coach Sean Persky said.

The Bengals were held to five hits in game two, led by two from Ben Ditton.

Idaho State (12-6, 1-1 Northern Pacific South Conference) plays a doubleheader against Boise State on April 20 at Halliwell Park.
