The Lakeland baseball team dropped two games on Sunday in non-conference action to No. 26 nationally-ranked Carthage College, 13-3 and 21-9, respectively, in Kenosha, Wis.
In game one, Carthage took a 2-0 lead in the first inning. The Muskies were able to cut the lead to 2-1 in the second on a homer by Brett Anschutz, but the Red Men responded with five runs in the bottom of the second. Lakeland trimmed the lead to 8-2 in fourth, as Shawn Loch singled to send Mitch Heinemeyer in. The Red Men again responded with a pair of runs in bottom of the fourth and three runs in fifth inning. The Muskies would get on the board one last time with an Adam Hablewitz single that sent Jacob Heinemeyer in for a score.
Nate Brusewitz took the loss on the mound for Lakeland, leaving the game in the second inning after Carthage's David Hermes' line drive drilled him in the arm. Mike Phillips took over pitching duties for the rest of the game for the Muskies.
In the second game, the Red Men jumped out to an early 11-0 lead in the first inning and the Muskies could not recover, tallying one run off a Jacob Heinemeyer single in the second inning. The only other runs the squad could muster took place in the fifth inning, as Mitch Heinemeyer and Phillips both singled for a run each.
Jake Van Camp took the loss for the Muskies on the mound in game two.
The Muskies will resume Northern Athletics Conference play on Saturday against Concordia University Chicago at home. Game time is scheduled for Noon.
