Statesmen beat Milwaukee ATC, 9-2
| Following a disappointing weekend on the diamond, Lincoln Trail College's baseball team was in dire need of win.|
The Statesmen got what they needed Monday, as they whipped visiting Milwaukee Area Technical College, 9-2, in a game that was a late addition to the schedule.
Lincoln Trail opened with single runs in each of the first two innings to take a 2-0 lead they would not relinquish. Milwaukee Area Tech scored a run in the fourth to close the gap to 2-1, but the Statesmen countered with five runs in the sixth to break the game open. Lincoln Trail added another run in the seventh to make the score 8-1, then each team plated a run in the eighth to complete the scoring.
A.J. Hyatt led LTC at the plate with three singles, two runs batted in and a run scored, while Connor Robinson posted two base hits, three runs batted in and a run scored. Brayden Freeman singled twice and scored three runs, Max Cain and Tim Hawkins-Hodgson added two singles and a run batted in apiece, Matt Rodgers doubled, knocked in two runs and scored twice, Andrew Solliday doubled and scored a run, Mike Konyensi singled and scored a run and Brian Solliday had a base hit.
Zachary Dowden picked up the win on the mound, allowing two runs on five hits, while walking one and striking out four in seven and one-third innings. Jimmy Lough went the rest of the way for the Statesmen, giving up one hit and one walk while striking out two in one and two-thirds scoreless innings of relief.
