Muskies Split With Wilmington
Athletics - posted on 3/15/2007
The Lakeland baseball team split a doubleheader with previously unbeaten Wilmington College, winning the first game, 6-5, and dropping the second game, 10-3.
In Game One, Nate Brusewitz pitched six-plus strong innings, giving up five runs on seven hits while striking out 10 batters.
Brusewitz's stuff was effective enough to keep the Muskies in the game after Wilmington jumped out to a 3-0 lead in the top of the third.
Lakeland got a run back in the bottom half of the third on an RBI double by Adam Brown, then scored three runs in the fourth to take a 4-3 lead.
After Wilmington tied the game back up in the fifth, Brett Nelson blasted a home run over the left field wall to take a 5-4 lead. Adam Hablewitz then doubled and scored on a two-out error by Wilmington's shortstop.
The run proved to be costly as the Quakers pulled within one in the top of the seventh, but Dan Rhodes got Mike Kroeger to line out to Jake Schoemann with a runner on second base to end the game.
In the second game, Kroeger doomed the Muskies, going 3-for-3 and finishing just a single short of the cycle.
Rhodes, who got the save in the first game, started the second game and received the loss after pitching only 2.2 innings.
Hablewitz finished with a two-game total of three doubles and three runs batted in.
Lakeland finishes their spring trip tomorrow with a morning doubleheader against Albion College.
