BALDWIN CITY, KS -- Central Methodist swept two games Friday at Baker as both teams opened Heart of America Athletic Conference play in baseball this season.

The Eagles (6-4, 2-0 HAAC) won by scores of 2-1 and 3-1 over the Wildcats (1-15, 0-2 HAAC).

After Baker's Josh Zach scored a go-ahead run in the bottom of the first of game one, Central Methodist answered with two in the top of the fifth of the seven-inning game. T.J. Singh scored the tying run on a Mike Allen sacrifice fly to center field. The Green and Black took the lead in the next at-bat when Neil Hansen's RBI single scored Neal DeMartin.

Drew Greiwe tossed a complete game on the mound for the win. He allowed only one earned run on five hits and struck out three.

James Gricol suffered the loss on the mound in a complete game performance. He allowed two earned runs on five hits while fanning five.

The Eagles grabbed a 2-0 lead in the top of the fourth inning of game two. Daniel Peters scored the first run on an error which was followed by Jesse Zelner's sacrifice fly to left, plating Shane Lowe.

Baker cut the deficit to one run in the bottom of the fifth when Bret Lechien crossed home on a RBI single, but Central Methodist regained a two-run edge three innings later when Zelner recorded his second RBI of the game on a single to center, this time scoring DeMartin.

Mike Wagner earned the win in game two for the Eagles, pitching seven innings while giving up only one earned run on seven hits and striking out 15 batters. Rhett Quinlan recorded the save with two innings of one-hit, scoreless relief.

Caleb Lee took the defeat on the mound, surrendering two runs, none earned, on six hits in seven innings. Ryan Hahn and Kyle Pattrick combined for two innings of relief.

Central Methodist hosts Benedictine (Kan.) for a HAAC doubleheader on Wednesday, March 20. First pitch is set for 1 p.m. CT.
