GVSU caps spring break trip with split

The No. 11 Grand Valley State University baseball team moved to 8-4 on Monday after splitting a pair of nine inning contests against No. 5 Minnesota State University-Mankato and Winona State University in Auburndale, Fla.

GVSU was unable to duplicate its first-round win over MNSU in the first round of the 2013 NCAA Division II Baseball National Finals, and fell 6-4 after failing to reach base in each of its last six at-bats. Sophomore pitcher Patrick Kelly (0-2) was tagged with the loss.

The nightcap yielded more success for the Lakers. Junior right fielder Jamie Potts drove in four runs on a pair of hits, while junior pitcher Evan Nietfeldt (3-0) allowed just five hits and one earned run in eight innings of work.
