Lakeland put eight Marian errors to good use in the second game, and got a complete-game victory from senior pitcher Kris Saiberlich. He allowed four runs, two earned, on just four hits over nine innings, walking four and striking out five.
Junior Adam Brown had a pair of hits for Lakeland and scored two runs. After Marian tied the game at two in the bottom of the first, the Muskies scored a pair of runs in the second and two more in the sixth.
In the first game, Lakeland led 3-1 thanks to a three-run fourth, but Marian tied the game at three in the bottom of the fifth, and broke it open with three more in the sixth and two in the seventh.
