SPRINGFIELD, Mo. – The Baker University baseball team lost its first two games of the 2014 HAAC regular season on Tuesday afternoon, as they fell 5-4 and 11-1 at Evangel.

The Wildcats are now 11-13 overall and 6-2 in the HAAC, while the Crusaders improved to 15-9 and 6-2 in the conference.

In game one, Baker went up early in the top of the first with a run, but went scoreless all the way until the top of the seventh inning.

Evangel looked to be in control with three runs in the fifth and one in the sixth to go up 4-1 in the top of the seventh.

But Taylor Whittum knocked in Ethan Jacks to start things off, then Ryan Terstriep doubled to left-centerfield to score Brett Lechien to cut the lead to 4-3.

Then Baker collected two straight walks and Austin Chisam scored to tie things up at 4-4. In the bottom of the seventh, Justin Bye allowed a bases loaded walk to Jacob Garrison and the Cruasaders scored the game winner on a walk-off walk.

In game two, despite a run in the top of the second inning, Evangel put the game away early with three runs in the third and four in the fourth to go up 7-1.

They later added four runs in the seventh to win the ballgame, 11-1. Ryan Lasneske suffered the loss in his six innings of work, while Jacob Shipman earned the win.

Offensively, Baker picked up just four hits, with Neal Boyce picking up a hit, Jacks went 1-for-2 and Lake Johnson had a 2-for-3 game.

The Wildcats will return to the field this weekend for a four-game series at Benedictine on Saturday, Mar. 29 and Sunday, Mar. 30.
