Myrtle Beach, SC – Jacob Kennell and Angel Oquendo each had two hits, scored three times, and drove in a run Sunday as Garrett College’s baseball team opened its Myrtle Beach trip by defeating Middlesex College, 7-4.

Collin Reed (RBI) also had two hits and drove in a run as the Lakers picked up their second win of the season. Colby Schmitz combined with two relievers on a four-hitter while earning the victory.

Montgomery County (PA) Community College defeated the Lakers, 3-2, on Monday as Chris Tomlinson’s one-out single in the bottom of the seventh scored Dillon Withers with the winning run. Oquendo drove in both Garrett runs with a solo homer and a sacrifice fly.
