BELOIT, Wis. — The Beloit College baseball team tossed a pair of shutouts at Lawrence University on Saturday.
The Bucs won the opener 2-0 and took the nightcap 7-0.
In the opener, Beloit (5-11, 2-0 MWC) got a stellar outing from starter Andrew Edwards, who went seven innings to get the win. He allowed three hits, struck out four and walked two.
The Vikings (6-8, 0-4) wasted a fine effort from starter Drew Doares. He went 7.2 innings, allowed six hits and one earned run, struck out two and walked three.
Beloit got single runs in the sixth and eighth for all the offense it would need. Will Mack went 2-for-4 and Matt Meade was 2-for-3 to pace Beloit.
Aaron Benz collected two of Lawrence’s four hits in four at-bats.
In the nightcap, Beloit got another great performance from its starting pitcher. Ryan Kaveney went seven innings, allowed just one hit, struck out eight and walked five. The only hit he allowed was a second-inning, lead-off single by Davis Ogilvie.
Jerrick Habecker went 3-for-3 and scored three runs to spark the Beloit offense. Edwards also collected three hits, and Grant Henricksen had two hits and drove in three runs.
Atley Gay went six innings, allowed 12 hits and six runs and took the loss.
