The pitching got early run support this time around with the Bulldogs scoring a run in each of the first four innings.
In the third, it was Dill who grounded out to score freshman Kollyn All. Gargano scored off a wild pitch in the top of the fourth to put Butler up 4-1.
Sophomore Joe Graziano started on the bump for Butler, pitching five innings and striking out five. This was his first win of the season.
It was a team effort for Butler, as catcher Zach Parker was the only player to record multiple hits. The Bulldogs recorded nine hits as a team.
Butler improves to 14-9 on the season with the win. The Bulldogs will play Anderson University on March 27 at 4 p.m. at Bulldog Park.
