LUDINGTON — Spring Lake swept a non-conference baseball doubleheader at Ludington on Friday, 8-0 and 3-1.

“We knew we were going to have our hands full with a good Spring Lake team, and unfortunately we just could not get the bats going,” Orioles coach Evan Kroeze said. “They (the Lakers) kept us off balance all night and we could not adjust in time. Pitching-wise it was two tough losses for our starters. We thought both did a good job and put us in a spot to win.”

Spring Lake pitcher Ryan Grimm came within one out of a no-hitter until a double by Evan McCarthy in the seventh inning broke it up. Zach Schlepp and Gerrit Lyyski had two hits each to pace the Lakers.

Jack Stidham was the loser in the opener, giving up four earned runs on six hits and striking out six in five innings of work.

In the nightcap, it was Brody Kaminski tagged with the loss. All three of the Lakers runs were earned. Kaminski gave up seven hits and struck out three in seven innings.

Carter Ball was the winning pitcher for Spring Lake. He allowed three hits and struck out nine. Derrick Paggeot and Kyle Wright each had two hits for the Lakers’ offense.

Jonny Weinert had one hit, a walk and scored a run while Evan McCarthy also contributed a hit and also drew a walk.

Ludington (4-7 overall, 3-3 WMC Lakes) competes in a tournament Saturday at Kellogg High School in Middleville.
