BROCKPORT, N.Y. – The Oswego State baseball team was unable to avoid a sweep against Brockport, as the Lakers suffered an 11-0 loss at the Clark Whited Complex on Sunday. The loss dropped the Lakers’ record to 10-10 overall and 0-7 in the SUNYAC, while the Golden Eagles improved to 17-7 on the year with a 6-4 conference mark.
Golden Eagles pitcher Steve Locke picked up his second win of the season after seven innings of work with seven strikeouts and two hits. Oswego State pitcher Jon Stevens picked up his first loss as a starter this season, pitching through 5.1 innings with four strikeouts and a pair of walks. Stevens allowed nine hits, but four of his seven allowed runs were unearned. Brady Farkas came on for 2.2 innings of relief work for the Lakers with four more runs, two of which were unearned.
Brockport scored early and often as defensive miscues played a factor for the second straight day. The Golden Eagles took a 2-0 lead after the first inning, and built a lead from that point as they held a five-run advantage at the end of three innings.
Brockport scored three insurance runs each in the sixth and eighth innings with the tenth run coming across as a result of an Oswego State balk.
The Lakers will try to snap their current losing streak when they host Cortland in a doubleheader Wednesday from Laker Baseball Field at 2:00 p.m.
