The top three hitters in the order — Rickenbach, Moysh and Burgess — each had three hits while Adam Gunn threw five scoreless innings to pick up his fifth win of the year.
The Cougars took an early lead in game two with a run in the first and stretched it to 5-1 after a four-run third. Aveeno Nasiloski's two-run double plated two in the inning.
Rickenbach homered — a two-run blast to left center — and Burgess doubled home Moysh in the fifth to get UVU within a run but William Hill answered with a solo shot to left in the bottom of the inning to make it 6-4 through five.
Rickenbach delivered again the sixth with a two-run single, tying the game at 6, but again CSU answered with a single run to regain the lead, 7-6, after six innings.
Austin Heaps led off the seventh with a double and came home to score the tying run when Hatch dribbled a seeing-eye single past short. Three batters later, Hart delivered his big blow to put Utah Valley ahead for good.
The Wolverines added two more in the eighth, getting back-to-back doubles from Taylor Berg and Willie Pratt to make it a 12-7 game. Hatch homered in the ninth — a two-run shot down the left-field line — before Berg had another double and later scored the 15th run.
In addition to Berg, who had a four-hit game, five other players each had three hits; Moysh, Burgess, Kallunki, Hatch and Hart while Rickenbach drove in four runs.
Albert Carpen and Ryan Malhotra had three hits apiece to lead Chicago State.
Jeremy Gendlek (6-3), in his first relief appearance of the season, got the win and has now won six straight decisions including two this week.
In the four-game series, Utah Valley batted .488, scored 81 runs and slugged .777 as a team. Moysh had 14 hits in the series, with at least three in each game, and batted .636.
