The Luther baseball team began the 2012 campaign with a double header against Concordia-Moorhead in the Minneapolis Metrodome. The Norse were swept by the Cobbers 5-3, 8-1.
In game one, the Norse tallied eight hits, led by Austin Graham who was 2-for-4 batting in the second slot.
Luther scored two runs in the fifth on a error by the Cobbers and added a run in the top of the seventh.
Graham drove in Luther's lone run in the bottom of the third. Andy Briggs had two of Luther's three hits going 2-for-3 at the plate.
Entering the top half of the sixth leading 3-2, the Cobbers broke the game open with four-runs en route to the double header sweep.
Luther returns to action March 18-23 when it will travel to Tucson, Ariz. for its annual spring trip. The Norse will play 10 games in six days starting with a nine inning game against Carleton College on March 18 at 10:00 a.m.
