The Central College baseball team scored two wins at the Gene Cusic Collegiate Classic Friday, blanking Lawrence University 12-0 before capturing a 6-3 victory over Lasell College.

Junior Dirk Lindaman tossed a four-hitter in the opener, striking out two in 6.1 innings. Bret Bell came in to close the seventh inning. The Dutch committed no errors in their fourth shutout of the season. Offensively, Central blasted 13 hits and took advantage of four Lawrence errors. Jordan Judkins was 4-for-5 driving in two runs and scoring twice; while Max Seeman had three hits, bringing in four runs.

Central battled for the win in the nightcap. The Dutch scored early with two runs in the first and one in the second, but Lasell responded with a run in the fourth and two in the sixth to knot the score at 3-3. Judkins sparked the offense in the eighth inning with a double and scored the go-ahead run off a sacrifice fly from Seth Carson. Central added two more tallies to secure the victory. Judson McKown was tagged with the win, throwing the last three innings. Ryan Dusil had the start and fanned four batters.

Central improved to 9-3 overall and compiled a 7-2 spring break mark.
