COLLEGEVILLE, Minn. – Playing its first games in 11 days, the Carleton College baseball team was unable to get the bats going early in a doubleheader against Gustavus Adolphus College. The Knights dropped the opener, 6-0, and a late rally fell short in absorbing a 5-4 setback in game two.

The games were moved to Saint John’s University due to poor field conditions at the Gusties’ home stadium.

GAME 1 RECAP:
The Gusties scored three runs in the bottom of the first inning and padded their lead with two more unearned tallies in the following frame.

Gustavus’ starter Sam Archer improved to 3-0 and lowered his season ERA to 0.47 thanks to his first complete game effort of the year. He limited the Knights to four hits—all singles—and benefitted from a trio of double play grounders.

Carleton catcher Keenan Moore (So./Minneapolis, Minn./De La Salle) went 2-for-2, while Blake Anderson (Fy./Alexandria, Minn./Alexandria) and Brendon Fischel (Jr./Eureka, Calif./Eureka) had the other base knocks for the Knights.

GAME 2 RECAP:
Despite trailing 5-1 heading into the final frame, the Knights made things interesting late. Singles by Josh Small (So./Chappaqua, N.Y./Horace Greeley) and Matt Rubin (Jr./Hawthorne, N.Y./Westlake) preceded a three-run home run for sophomore Wilson Battle (Salt Lake City, Utah/Skyline Senior)

Fischel followed with a double but the third Gustavus reliever of the inning was able to finally douse the Carleton rally and secure the 5-4 triumph for the Gusties.

Battle finished the day 3-for-3 with the home run, sacrifice fly, and four RBI. He went deep for the second consecutive doubleheader.

Tyler Rolland (Sr./Burnsville, Minn./Apple Valley) surrendered only one run over his 4.0 innings of relief.

UP NEXT FOR THE KNIGHTS:
Carleton travels to Saint Mary’s University for a 2:30 p.m. doubleheader on Monday, April 23.
