The Titan baseball team dominated Corban University with a doubleheader sweep at LCC on Oct. 23.

LCC had a strong start to their 11-4 win in game one with a two-run double in the first inning from catcher Skip Spencer. Infielder Josh Schlegal had a three-run homer in the sixth to round out the runs brought in by LCC for the game.

Catcher Allen Fitzsimmons was three-for-three with a double, RBI, and a sacrifice bunt. The Titans had a total of 16 hits in game one.

"We wrapped up the fall with an offensive explosion," pitching coach Jeff Lyle said. "We had 30 hits in the doubleheader."

In the second game LCC answered Corban's four runs with three of their own in the third inning. Matt Myrmo's sacrifice bunt brought in a run by Trevor Ryan. Ryan was three-for-three in game two with a triple, walk, and a sacrifice bunt.

Shay Huskey hit a two-RBI double, and a two-run inside the park home run to centerfield. LCC ended the game 9-4 with 14 hits altogether.

"The guys have done a great job this fall of buying in and playing baseball the Titan way," Lyle said. "It should be a great year for the Titans and I'm really excited to see this group start playing like we know they can."
