Davenport scored four runs in the fifth inning to break open a one-one tie and held on to beat Bellevue (NE) 7-4 Wednesday in the Opening Round of the NAIA National Tournament.

The Panthers advance to the championship round where they will play an opponent that is yet to be determined.  DU will have two chances to get one win beginning Thursday at 3 p.m. at the Farmers Insurance Complex.

With a win Thursday or Friday (if necessary) Davenport can advance to a second straight NAIA World Series.
