The Charger baseball team lost a pair of one-run non-conference games Tuesday afternoon in Indiana, falling to Oakland City University 4-3 and 5-4. The losses make Hillsdale 3-9 on the season.
In the opener, the Mighty Oaks scored three runs in the bottom of the seventh inning to come back from a 3-1 deficit. The loss spoiled a quality start by junior pitcher Kolton Rominski, who struck out six and didn't walk anyone in six innings of work.
In game two, all of the scoring took place in the first three innings. Oakland City scored four times in the bottom of the second inning to take a 4-0 lead. Hillsdale responded with four runs in the top of the third to tie it up. The Mighty Oaks countered with one run in the third, which turned out to be the last runs scored in the game.
