Statesmen beat Milwaukee ATC, 9-2
Sports Editor

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.

Lincoln Trail (12-16) will play a doubleheader at Vincennes University Wednesday at 1 p.m.
