College Baseball: Ridgewater drops two to Iowa Lakes
WILLMAR -- A day after clinching the MCAC Central Division title, Ridgewater was swept 8-3 and 11-1 by Iowa Lakes Community College Tuesday.
Ridgewater (24-10) was held to six hits in each game while the Lakers (26-18) erupted for 26 hits, including 16 in the second game.
Iowa Lakes was clinging to a 4-3 lead in the opener until it plated four runs in the sixth inning. Luis Reyes went 3-for-3 and Ronaldo Camacho slugged a two-run homer in the sixth for the Lakers, who also took advantage of two Ridgewater errors in the frame.
Clint Aretz knocked in all three runs for the Warriors by getting hit by a pitch with the bases loaded in the first and delivering a two-run double in the third that scored Matt Christensen and Benji Hager.
Austen Hadley scored the Warriors' lone run in the second game after coming home on Cody Connors' single to right field in the sixth.
After playing six games in three days, Ridgewater is off until the weekend when it hosts Fergus Falls on Saturday at 1 p.m. Fergus Falls will then host the Warriors on Sunday for another doubleheader that starts at 1 p.m.
