Box Score: CUW 2, LC 0
MEQUON, Wis. - Austin Baglow struck out eight batters in eight innings to help Concordia University Wisconsin earn a baseball doubleheader split against Lakeland College during rainy and windy conditions at Kapco Park on Sunday afternoon. The Falcons fell in the Northern Athletics Conference opener 10-2 before earning a 2-0 shutout win in the nightcap.
Baglow (sophomore, Walled Lake, Mich.) scattered six hits in 8.1 innings of work - his longest effort of the season. He pitched two 1-2-3 innings and allowed no more than two base runners in any frame. Freshman Dylan Hinckley (West Bend, Wis.) earned his third save of the season by recording the final two outs.
LC pounded 16 hits in the opener and plated four runs in the fifth frame to take control.
Senior Austin Sarauer (Campbellsport, Wis.) led CUW with five hits and two RBI in the two game set. Senior David Enters (Milwaukee, Wis.) added four bases hits and sophomore Harry Steldt (West Bend, Wis.) finished with three hits.
Ryan Boettcher and Jess Nickel each recorded four base hits and two RBI for LC (16-11, 6-6 NAC). Garrett Morris added three bases hits and scored twice.
Game One Recap:
LC roughed up CUW starter Andrew Mueller (2-2) for seven earned runs on ten hits over the first five innings. On the other hand, Mike Ruzek was cruising on the hill for the Muskies, as he earned the win after throwing 8.0 innings of two-run ball.
The Muskies plated three runs to open the game and the Falcons (11-12, 8-4 NAC) answered with a pair of their own, but that is all the scoring they could manufacture.
Sophomore Mueller (Horicon, Wis.) was tagged with the loss.
Game Two Recap:
LC could not find a way to connect with Baglow's pitches, as the right-hander earned his first shutout of the year. He induced the Muskies into 10 groundouts and five flyouts.
Andy Chitwood threw eight strong innings, allowing eight hits while striking out four, for the Muskies.
Sarauer, Steldt and freshman Matt Schroeder (Mequon, Wis.) combined for six of the Falcons eight hits in the contest.
Schroeder led off the bottom of the third frame with a triple off the left-center field fence. Two batters later, Sarauer lined an RBI single to center field to give CUW a 1-0 lead.
In the seventh, sophomore Mathew Scasny (Pewaukee, Wis.) ripped a single up the middle before advancing to second on senior Nick Doedens (Milwaukee, Wis.) sacrifice bunt. Enters then lined a 1-2 pitch to center field which drove home Scasny and put CUW in front 2-0.
CUW returns to the diamond on Wednesday afternoon at 4 p.m. for a non-conference matchup at St. Norbert College in De Pere, Wis.
