The Lawrence University baseball team finally got their bats going in last weekend’s games against Finlandia University, winning both games in a dominant fashion. After struggling in the first few weeks of the season, the Vikings finally got the offensive production they had been looking for – and some great pitching to go along with it. The Vikings scored a total of 26 runs in the day-night doubleheader, only allowing the Lions to score two. In the day game, Andrew Wilt took a no-hit bid into the fifth inning, striking out seven batters in the shutout. When asked about his performance, Wilt said, “It feels good to go out there and have complete control of my pitches. I was hitting my spots real well and it also helps to have some good defense behind me.” It also helps to have the kind of run support that the Vikings gave Wilt. The Vikings scored three runs in the first inning and three more in the second. Two of those second- inning runs came off the bat of freshman Davide Harris, who blasted a two-run shot over the fence in the second inning. It was the first home run of his young career. Lawrence went on to win the game 11-0. In the nightcap, the runs just kept coming for Lawrence. Junior captain Rob Rashid, freshman Phil Wisniewski and freshman Alex Brewer each had a pair of hits, and the Vikings managed to cross the plate 15 times, only stranding seven runners in the process. Jake Johnson gave the Vikings another solid pitching performance, going 5 2/3 innings and allowing only three hits while striking out seven. Lawrence finished off the Lions with a five-run fourth inning, and the Vikings won 15-2. After a home game against MSOE Wednesday, the Vikings (5-17, 2-2 MWC) will next face Beloit (15-9, 4-4 MWC) in a homeand- home series this weekend.
