HOW IT HAPPENED
- Nick Harris started the three-run first inning for Spring Arbor with a two-out double down the left field line bringing in Alex Holley and Tyler Reed. Kyle Harris capped the scoring with a base hit allowing his brother to cross the plate.
- The Cougars extended their lead to 4-0 in the second on Reed's RBI single.
- Grace scored one run on three hits in the third inning, but that was the only offense the Lancers could come up with against Duncan Patterson on the day.
- After surrendering a run in the third, Patterson held the visitors scoreless and hitless over the next four innings.
- The Lancers brought the tying run to the plate in the ninth, but freshman Nick Carroll induced a harmless pop out to end the game and earn his first career save.
- Reed was 2-for-4 at the plate with an RBI and run scored. Francisco Ondina also collected two hits, including a double.
- Patterson earned his third win of the season. He pitched seven innings allowing one run on four hits while striking out six, which matched his season-high. Carroll tossed two innings of scoreless relief with three strike outs.
Spring Arbor will host Siena Heights University (13-25, 12-12 WHAC) in non-conference action on Tuesday at 4 p.m.
