TUCSON, Ariz. – Following the tried and true formula of solid pitching and timely hitting, the Carleton College baseball team swept a doubleheader against Oberlin College by scores of 9-3 and 12-1. The Knights have now won five of their last six games as they collected 13 hits in both contests on Tuesday, and the pitching staff combined to yield only nine hits and two earned runs on the day.

Game one highlights:
The contest was tied 3-3 when the Knights blew things open with a five-run fifth inning, including RBI hits from Brendon Fischel (Jr./Eureka, Calif./Eureka), Keenan Moore (So./Minneapolis, Minn./De La Salle), and Blake Anderson (Fy./Alexandria, Minn./Alexandria).

Moore and Chris Lasch (So./South Newfane, Vt./Northfield Mount Hermon) had three hits apiece, while Anderson, Fischel, and Griffin Bolte (Sr./Portland, Ore./Lincoln) added multi-hit performances. Matt Rubin (Jr./Hawthorne, N.Y./Westlake) contributed a two-run single in the second inning for the Knights.

Wilson Battle (So./Salt Lake City, Utah/Skyline Senior) tossed the first 3.0 innings, yielding three runs (two earned) with a pair of strikeouts. Ben Frerichs (Sr./Alexandria, Va./St. Stephens and St. Agnes) tossed 4.0 scoreless frames of 1-hit relief to pick the victory and improve to 2-1 on the campaign.

Game two highlights:
Carleton scored in six of the seven frames to provide plenty of run support for Tyler Rolland (Burnsville, Minn./Apple Valley). The senior righthander pitched 6.0 scoreless innings and allowed only three singles with no walks and four strikeouts as he pushed his record to 3-1 on the season. He has now allowed only two earned runs over his last 18.0 innings of work.

Bolte, Battle, Anderson, and Josh Small (So./Chappaqua, N.Y./Horace Greeley) each had multi-hit, multi-RBI stat lines in the second game. Catcher Patrick Jorling (So./Bethesda, Md./Walter Johnson) added a two-hit effort, as well.

Looking Ahead:
Carleton will face Carroll University on Wednesday, March 21 at 9 a.m. MST/11 a.m. CDT.
