College Baseball: Ridgewater splits with Iowa Lakes
ESTHERVILLE, Iowa -- Ridgewater opened its twin bill with Iowa Lakes Tuesday with a rout and the Lakers finished the day with a rout of their own.
The Warriors used 12 hits -- three from Matt Christensen -- and got a solid performance on the mound from Nathan Nietfeld to win the opener 9-1.
Iowa Lakes then had Angel Samot limit Ridgewater to three hits while the Lakers' offense used two five-run innings to win the nightcap 12-0 in five innings.
The only Iowa Lakes run off Nietfeld was on a groundout in the fifth inning as the freshman from Paynesville scattered six hits and three strikeouts in his complete-game win.
Nietfeld was aided by Kelvin Nelson's two-run triple in the fourth.
Mike Weber doubled and Cameron Lehner singled before Luke Frauendienst singled in a run in a four-run sixth for the Warriors.
Ridgewater loaded the bases in the first inning of the second game, but Samot got two strikeouts to escape unscathed.
The Lakers plated five runs in the bottom half of the frame to take control.
Ridgewater (18-8) hosts a twin bill with Central Lakes today at 2 p.m.
