LCCC Baseball Loses Two to Division II Edison State CC

Damion Coleman

April 9, 2019 – – When you are a Division III school, it can often be a challenge to square off against a Division II opponent, as the Lorain County Men’s Baseball team learned yesterday in their losses to Edison State. Both games went just 5 innings with Edison State coming out on top by scores of 24-7 and 17-0.

In game one, the Chargers put 11 runs on the board and never looked back. A bright spot for LCCC came in the bottom of the 4th when Damion Coleman (Niles/Niles McKinley) hit a 3-run dinger for the Commodores. DH Derek Dulemba (Elyria/Midview) had a good day at the plate for Lorain with a home run, SAC fly, and 4 RBI’s, while Jared Naida (Cleveland/Lakewood) walked twice and had a double with 3 runs scored.

Game two was a much different story for Lorain as they struggled offensively and Edison State scored 15 runs in the first three innings of play. Jesse Barrios (Wooster/Home School) and Noah Henderson (Toledo/Whitmer) managed the only hits for LCCC in the game.   

The Commodores hit the road for their next five contests, travelling to Eastern Gateway Community College for a 2 p.m. game on Wednesday, April 10, 2019.
