The Lincoln Christian University (LCU) baseball team traveled to St. Louis Christian College (SLCC) Tuesday, April 22, 2014, for the first of two double-headers that will wind down their 2014 season. The Red Lions will host SLCC for the return games on Friday, April 25.
In Tuesday's first game, at 1 p.m., LCU (1-12) starting pitcher, junior Matt Krause (Mt. Zion, IL/Mt. Zion HS) pitched a complete game. Giving up 4 runs in the first two innings, the Red Lions bounced back to tie the game at 4-4 by the top of the fourth. However, the fifth and sixth innings were all SLCC, as they tacked on another 7 runs to end the game, 11-4.
LCU junior pitcher Scott Reynolds (Sidney, IL/Unity HS) started the second game. SLCC picked up where they left off in the first game, scoring 3 runs in the bottom of the first inning, and one more in the second. LCU would score 2 more runs late in the game, but junior relief pitcher Chris Krause (Mt. Zion, IL/Mt. Zion HS) would give up 5 more runs to the SLCC Soldiers. The final score for the late game was LCU-2, SLCC-9.
