Freshman catcher Austin Athmann went 3-for-3 and had an RBI as the Gophers beat North Dakota State 5-3 on Tuesday at Siebert Field in nonconference baseball.

It was Athmann’s first start since March 9. He also blocked the plate and tagged a runner out at home in the third inning.

Shortstop Mike Handel was 2-for-5 with an RBI for the Gophers (18-14).

Minnesota, ahead 2-1, scored three runs in the seventh to open a 5-1 lead. Handel doubled, two pinch hitters walked to load the bases. Athmann’s walk scored a run and then pinch-hiotter Dan Olinger singled to score two more runs.

Pinh-hitter David Ernest had a two-run single for the Bison (8-16) in the eighth inning.

Toby Anderson, who pitched two scoreless innings in relief, got the victory while Kevin Kray got a save with 1⅓ innings of work.
