The Lakeland College baseball team had a long day on the field in their home doubleheader with Northern Athletics Conference foe Dominican University on Monday afternoon, winning the first game 6-3 before being forced to call the second game on account of darkness in the 13th inning with the score deadlocked at five runs apiece.
As the game is a conference contest, the Muskies and the Stars will have to meet up again at some point in order to conclude the game.
Junior Jake Van Camp snagged the save in the first game after coming in to relieve senior Kris Saiberlich in the ninth inning, who gave up nine hits and three walks with four strikeouts.
The Muskies (8-11, 5-4 NAC), found themselves playing catch-up with a 2-0 deficit after six innings. However, the home squad found all the offense it needed in the seventh inning to take the game, tallying six runs on six hits.
The Stars couldn't quite seem to solve the problem of how to field the Muskies' well-placed bunts, helping senior Paul Smith and freshman Roberto Flores reach the bases. Freshman Ed Kozlowski and senior Adam Hablewitz also had key hits in the inning, with Kozlowski registering a 2 RBI single while Hablewitz cracked a double for an RBI.
The Muskies will continue NAC play with a doubleheader at Rockford College on Wednesday, April 16, at the Road Ranger Stadium in Loves Park, Ill. Game start time is set for 1 p.m.
