| Offense was aplenty for Lincoln Trail College's baseball team Tuesday (April 25) and the end result was a doubleheader sweep over visiting Lake Land College in Great Rivers Athletic Conference play.|
The Statesmen combined for 24 runs on 22 hits on their way to 13-2 and 11-0 wins.
In game one, LTC opened the scoring with a three-run second inning, then after each team scored a run in the fourth, the Statesmen broke through for six runs in the fifth to take a 10-1 lead. Lake scored again in the top of the sixth, but LTC responded with three in the bottom of the inning to complete the scoring.
The game was stopped after seven innings due to the 10-run rule.
Coby Taylor led LTC at the plate with a home run, three singles, three runs scored and two runs batted in, while Keaton Sackett singled three times, knocked in two runs and scored twice.

In game two, the Statesmen scored in four of five at-bats - which included three home runs - and cruised to the win. Lincoln Trail scored a run in the first, two in the third, five in the fourth and three more in the fifth to bring the 10-run rule into effect.
