KISSIMMEE, Fla. - St. Norbert College split a pair of games with Anderson University, dropping the first game in a tough 4-3 decision before bouncing back to cruise to a 14-2 win in the nightcap at Osceola Heritage Park.

The Green Knights (2-2) scored two runs in the first, second, fourth and fifth innings to open up an 8-1 lead, and then scored six runs in the seventh to put the game away.

Jack Maastricht had an RBI single in the first inning, while Ben Kohl scored on a double play. The Green Knights parlayed four hit batsmen into a pair of runs in the second inning - tied for the second-most hit batsmen in an inning in NCAA Division III history. Brett Reinhart forced in a run with a walk and Sean Ferraro had a sacrifice fly in the fourth inning, while Maastricht had an RBI single and Griffin Jack a run-scoring grounder in the fifth inning.

St. Norbert plated six runs on three hits in the seventh inning. Maastricht again drove in a run with a single, while Jack had a two-run single and Ferraro a two-run double. Alex Perez added a run-scoring groundout.

Maastricht finished 4-for-4 with three RBIs and two runs scored. Jack was 2-for-4 with three RBIs, while Kohl and Lucas Reynolds each scored three runs. The Green Knights were hit a total of nine times by Anderson pitches, tied for the fourth-most in Division III history and also a Midwest Conference record.

Nick Klavekoske finished with a four-hit complete game, walking three and striking out four.

In the opener, Anderson scored single runs in the sixth and seventh innings to squeak past the Green Knights.

Anderson scored two runs in the second inning on a two-run home run, but St. Norbert answered with three runs in the third inning on a two-run home run by Reynolds and a solo shot by Maastricht. The Ravens scored a run in the sixth inning on a sacrifice fly and then got a solo home run with two outs in the seventh for the game-winning run.

Maastricht and Kohl were both 2-for-3, with Kohl posting a double and triple.

Carson Jacques took the hard-luck loss, allowing six hits with no walks and four strikeouts in a complete-game effort.
