Box Score

LMU (5-10) took the first game of a doubleheader with Valparaiso (4-10) on Sunday morning, earning a 7-4 victory behind a strong start from Josh Agnew.

Agnew went the first 6.0 innings, allowing just one run on six hits to earn the victory and move to 3-1 on the year.

LMU received three-hit games from Jamey Smart and freshman Alex Lambeau, with Smart picking up a double and a RBI. Lambeau, making just his second start at shortstop, finished 3-for-3 with a run scored, a double and a triple.

WIth the three hits, Smart is now 7-for-10 in the series headed into the finale later Sunday.

Valpo also came to hit on Sunday, registering four runs on 10 hits, including a three-run homer from Giovanni Garbella in the eighth. The homer cut LMU's lead from 7-1 to 7-4, but freshman Matt Voelker emerged from the LMU bullpen to toss a scoreless ninth inning, capturing his first career save.

Trey Ferketic was charged with the loss after allowing seven runs (six earned) on nine hits and three walks with three strikeouts. The loss dropped him to 2-1 on the season.
