Slippery Rock, Pa. - Duquesne's baseball team got back on the winning track with a 6-2 victory over nationally-ranked Division II Slippery Rock, Wednesday afternoon at The Rock's Jack Critchfield Park. The Dukes have won six of their last seven games.

Nolan Pena was 2-for-3 and Joe Berletic went 2-for-4 with 2 RBI for the efficient Dukes, who scored six runs on eight hits. Five of the Dukes' hits were for extra bases.

M.J. Parsons (2-3) was the only Slippery Rock player to have a multi-hit game. Starter Craig Misiewicz was charged with the loss.

Duquesne (10-9, 3-0 A-10), which had to move the last two contests away from Pittsburgh because of the weather, returns to Atlantic 10 Conference play when they host Rhode Island (2-15, 0-3) in a three-game series beginning with a Friday, March 30, 2007, afternoon match.
