Beloit, WI -- The Beloit College Baseball team spun a big comeback in game two of their Midwest Conference-opening doubleheader with Carroll University at The Ballpark at Strong Stadium Friday to record a sweep, winning 3-1 and 11-6.

Carroll jumped on top in the nightcap with an error-filled second inning, scoring five runs on five hits and three Beloit errors, making all five runs unearned.  After a quiet bottom of the second the Bucs began their comeback in the third, scoring three unearned run.  Jordan Jaenicke scored the first run on an error before Jake Tresemer and Emory Nelms hit RBI singles.

The Buccaneers continued their rally in the fourth, scoring a solo run on Evan Mascitti's RBI triple to pull within 5-4.  They tied it up in the fifth when Alex Lawrence drove in Tresemer, who had doubled, with a single.

Carroll re-took the lead in the seventh with a run before Beloit grabbed the lead for good with a five-run seventh.  Jerrick Habecker drove in the tying and lead runs with a triple to right and Jaenicke followed with a run-scoring single.  Alex Jennings then singled in Jaenicke before Tresemer doubled in Jennings to complete the big inning.

Jaenicke hit a two-out single in the eighth to score Lawrence to close out the scoring.

Al Loth got the win on the mound with two and two-thirds scoreless innings.  Jaenicke and Tresemer each finished with three hits while Mascitti, Jennings and Lawrence had two apiece.

In the opener Alex Norman was his usual self, scattering nine hits while striking out 10 and walking none in a quick one hour and 56 minutes.

The Buccaneers jumped on top in the second when Tresemer scored on a wild pitch.  That 1-0 lead stood till the sixth when Emory Nelms hit a sacrifice fly to drive in Tresemer.  Jennings added insurance in the seventh with a single to score Jaenicke.

Tresemer led the offense with two hits.

Beloit continues the four-game series on Saturday in Waukesha.  First pitch is at 1:00 p.m.
