SVSU Drops Two at #15 GVSU

ALLENDALE, Mich. - The Saginaw Valley State University baseball team traveled to Allendale for a mid-week doubleheader with the 15th-ranked Grand Valley State University Lakers.  The Lakers came out on top by a score of 4-0 in the opener before posting a 13-1 victory in game two, claiming the sweep in the Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (GLIAC) matchup.

Game One

The Lakers put a pair of runs on the board in the bottom of the third inning with two RBI singles.  GVSU added another two in its half of the fifth inning on a sac fly and an RBI single.  Those two made the score 4-0.

With two outs in the seventh, the Cardinals threatened with the bases loaded.  GVSU was able to close things out, however, for the four-run victory.

Brad Schalk had two hits in the opener for SVSU, including a double.

Matt Stojkov took the loss on the hill, working five innings.

Game Two

Grand Valley took a 1-0 lead in the bottom of the second to begin the scoring.

The Cards responded to knot the score at 1-1 in the top of the third frame on a Luke Valutis double to right-center that scored Schalk, who reached base on a double to left-center.

The Lakers put up a four spot in the bottom half of the 3rd, grabbing the lead back and making the score 5-1.  GV would then add another five runs in the fourth to push the lead out to 10-1.  It would score three more in the bottom of six to make the score 13-1.

SVSU wouldn't be able to push any more runs across and the 13-1 count would prove to be the final.

Schalk had two more hits in the nightcap.

David Freed suffered the loss on the bump, pitching three innings.

The Cardinals (6-18, 3-11 GLIAC) return to action this Saturday (Apr. 12) when they host Malone University for a three-game series.  Saturday's doubleheader is tentatively set for 1 pm and a single, nine-inning game will be played on Sunday.
