The LCC baseball team traveled to Kellogg CC on Thursday, May 4. The Stars dropped both games of the doubleheader, 8-1 in the first game, and 8-2 in the second.

It was just the eighth and ninth losses for the Stars, who are now 39-9 on the year and 19-4 in the MCCAA Western Conference with just three games left on the year.

Head coach Steven Cutter spoke about the two losses.

“Kellogg did a nice job preparing for the games,” Cutter said. “And they were just better in all three facets of the game: pitching, hitting and defense. You win and lose games with that.”

Pitcher Lukas Brewer was tabbed with the loss in the first game. He went four innings allowing zero earned runs, and two unearned. Matthew McKeon, Xander Hall and Christian Arquette all pitched in relief.

Pitcher Hunter Shaw suffered the loss in the second game, allowing five earned runs. Elijah Stark pitched in relief.

Infielder Hunter Lay had a big day for LCC with four hits, two RBIs and a home run in the doubleheader. Catcher Noah Bright added three hits on the day.

Lay has put together quite the season for LCC. His home run was a team-leading 13th on the year, Lay also leads the team with a .457 batting average. He has racked up 58 RBIs and 15 steals.

The losses came after two large victories at Ancilla College on April 29. LCC won the first game 13-2 and the second game 13-6.

The Stars have just three games remaining in the regular season. Two of those come next at home vs. Kellogg CC on Saturday, May 6. It will be a chance for the Stars to score revenge after the sweep on May 4.

Cutter spoke about his team heading into the postseason.

“For the first time in our short coaching history, we will go on the road for regionals instead of hosting them,” Cutter said. “We have yet to determine who we are playing, but we know we will be on a bus going somewhere for a three-game series that starts on Thursday. We are excited and will be sure to enjoy the special moments of the postseason again.”
