BALDWIN CITY, Kan. – The Baker University baseball was swept by Heart of America Athletic Conference foe Benedictine College on Tuesday afternoon in a 5-0 loss in game one and a 6-5 heart wrenching loss in nine innings in game two.

Baker falls to 2-22 overall and 1-9 in the HAAC, while the Ravens have now won six straight overall and stands at 12-11 and 8-2 in the HAAC.

In game one, Baker struggled at the plate against BC's starting pitcher Derek Surdez. In seven innings of work, Surdez gave up just five hits and shut out the Wildcats, while walking only one.

The Wildcats sent four pitchers to the mound, with Jimmy Gricol getting the start and threw four solid innings giving up just one earned run and struck out four Ravens.

Ben Makela threw the fifth inning, Ryan Hahn threw the sixth and Derek Schupp threw the seventh inning for Baker. Hahn and Schupp went scoreless in their inning, while Makela gave up three runs.

In game two, Baker's bats got hot in the bottom of the second inning with four runs. Josh Ackerman led the inning off with a single to right field, and then Ethan Jacks sacrifice bunted Ackerman to second.

Charles Coleman then popped out and Tevin Thompson then came up and doubled to center field to score Ackerman.

Neal Boyce then reached on an error and moved Thompson to third, he then stole second base to get into scoring position.

Center fielder Brett Lechien singled to center field scoring Thompson and Boyce and the Wildcats led 3-0.

Matt Fry later reached base on another BC error and Ryan Terstriep then popped a high pop fly to the short stop, but Ben Raun dropped it and scored Lechien to put Baker up 4-0.

Baker added one more run in the bottom of the fourth inning and looked to be headed to its first win since Mar. 20, but Baker gave up four runs in the top of the sixth and one in the top of the seventh to squander its lead.

Baker went scoreless in the final five innings of the game and fell to the Ravens for the fourth time in 2013.

Baker will return home this Saturday, Apr. 6, as they take on Culver-Stockton in a doubleheader at 1 p.m. at Sauder Field.
