KANSAS CITY, Mo. – In twin bill played at Avila University, the Baker University baseball team fell to Heart of America Athletic Conference rival Benedictine College, 2-0 in game one and 3-1 in game two.

The Wildcat pitching staff allowed just three hits in game one and nine in game two and only put two pitchers on the mound on the day.

Thomas Hawkins got the start in game one and threw a nearly flawless 2nd through 7th innings and only gave up two runs in the top of the first inning.

Ryan Lasneske threw the second game and gave up two runs in the third and another in the fifth but struck out four Ravens.

In game one, the Baker offense struggled and managed just two hits off of starter Adam Burns.

The two Wildcats to capture hits were Brett Lechien and Miles Sanderson. Hawkins struck out five batters in game one.

In the second game, Josh Zach provided the Wildcats with their only run with a solo home run in the bottom of the second inning with a towering shot. Sanderson had two more hits in that game and teammates Bryan Kindle and Ethan Jacks supplied the other two hits.

With the two losses, Baker falls to 2-20 and 1-7 in the HAAC, while the Ravens improve to 10-11 overall and 6-2 in the HAAC.
