BALDWIN CITY, Kan. – On a chilly afternoon at Sauder Field, No. 7 ranked Sterling College swept Baker University in a doubleheader, 13-0 and 4-1, on Monday afternoon in the Wildcats 2014 home opener.

Brett Lechien got the start in game one for the 'Cats and had a solid four innings of stuff, allowing just three runs in 4.1 innings of work, but Sterling's bats awoke in the top of the fifth and scored seven runs on a combination of Lechien and Younger to go up 10-0.

Offensively, the Wildcats managed just two hits in game one, as Boyce led off the bottom of the first with a hit and the other Wildcat to register a hit was Gabe Greenbaum.

In game two, Baker trailed 1-0 throughout the early parts of the game and entered the bottom of the fifth down, 1-0, but managed to tie the game up on a Lake Johnson RBI that scored Lechien.

Sterling was able to put the game away in the top of the sixth with three runs. Derek Schupp got the start and threw three strong innings allowing only four hits.

In relief came Justin Bye, who shutout the Warriors and Justin Madsen and Kyle Pattrick closed things out for BU.

Boyce had another hit in game two and Josh Zach and Johnson were the other two to grab a hit.

The Wildcats will return home this Friday, Feb. 28 to take on Midland University at 1 p.m. for a nine inning game and then will face Midland on Saturday, Mar. 1 at Sauder field in a doubleheader beginning at 1 p.m.
