Swanger sparks Lakers in CSM split

Sophomore infielder doubles twice, scores twice in 6-2 victory

Zach Swanger doubled twice and scored two runs Monday afternoon as Garrett College defeated the College of Southern Maryland, 6-2, while splitting a baseball doubleheader.

CSM won the nightcap, 6-4, to gain the split.

Grant Landis (2-for-4, run, RBI), Luis Rodriguez (two RBI), and Chance Moore (RBI) also had doubles for the Lakers in the opener. Five of the Lakers’ eight hits were doubles.

Wes Landis (4-4) earned the Game 1 pitching victory, spacing five hits and a walk while striking out seven.

CSM took a 6-1 lead into the bottom of the sixth inning in the nightcap. The Hawks then held off a furious Laker rally that included a three-run sixth and a single run in the seventh.

The Lakers (19-28) host Chesapeake College Thursday in a 1 p.m. doubleheader. They close the regular season Friday with a 1 p.m. twin bill against Montgomery College at the Hot Stove Complex in Cumberland.
