Angola lined 18 hits and took advantage of 14 errors in sweeping host Lakeland Saturday in a varsity baseball twin-bill.
The Hornets won the opener, 17-7 in six innings. They broke the game opener with a seven-spot in the top of the second frame, all of the runs coming home as a result of five Laker defensive miscues.
Nick Chao drilled a three-run double and Tyler Kennedy went 3-3 with an RBI to spearhead the Angola offense. Hunter Stultz plated two runs with a double and a single, Justin Davis popped a double and a single and Darius Hillman cracked an RBI single.
Hunter Sams knocked in two of the Laker runs with a double. Dalton Schmidt went 3-3 with two doubles and an RBI, William Kelly poked three singles, Morgan Moore socked an RBI double and Kyle Casper plated one with a single.
Sean Conley pitched the first 3.1 innings for Angola to get the win. Zach Wall finished up for the Hornets.
Kelly started on the mound for the Lakers and was saddled with the loss. None of the nine runs he gave up were earned. Dylan Pranger pitched the final three frames.
The nightcap didn’t go any better for the Lakers, as a five-run first inning propelled Angola to an 11-1 triumph.
Chao knocked in six Hornets with a triple and a double. Kennedy slammed a two-run single. Davis and Jake Roddy each produced RBI singles.
Sams drove in Moore for the lone Laker run with a fourth-inning single. Kelly and Josh Collyer had the other Lakeland safeties.
Angola starter Randy Mikonowicz fanned five and walked two in four innings to log the pitching win. Chao tossed the last frame for the Hornets.
Derrick Dunn, Jacob Morris and Casper took turns on the mound for Lakeland.
