Connor Schaefbauer tripled and scored the only run of the game as the University of Minnesota (15-9, 3-3 Big Ten) baseball team beat Augsburg 1-0 Wednesday at Siebert Field. Three Golden Gopher freshmen combined to hold the Auggies (6-8) scoreless.
Second baseman Schaefbauer’s triple led off Minnesota’s fourth inning. Third baseman Tony Skjefte hit a sacrifice fly to right to drive in the run.
Cody Campbell made the start for the Gophers, giving up a hit and three walks in three innings. Toby Anderson pitched 3 2/3 innings in relief to earn his first career win. He allowed two hits and a walk. Brian Glowicki finished the game, earning his third save with one strikeout and one hit allowed.
Redshirt freshman Matt Stemper made his first start at catcher. He spent some time behind the plate in the weekend series against Michigan State, becoming the fifth Gopher to catch this season.
Augsburg used four pitchers, and starter Ryan Minder (1-1) took the loss after surrendering the game’s sole run in his last inning of work.
The Golden Gophers will next travel to Ann Arbor, Mich., for a three-game series against the Michigan Wolverines.
