Host Simpson College tallied 11 runs on 19 hits and defeated Luther in game one of this three-game series by a final of 11-5. Luther scored its five runs on six hits, putting a run on the board in the third, three in the sixth and one in the eighth.
Jake Vogt led off the third with a double and then stole third base becoming the all-time leader in this catergory. With his swipe he now has 54 career stolen bases. He has stolen 24 bases this season in 28 attempts. Since the Norse have already qualified for the American Rivers Conference double elimination tournament next weekend, he is guaranteed at least four more games during his career.
Joey Cardamon was credited with the loss. Cardamon pitched 3 2/3 innings, allowed five runs on 11 hits and struck out four.
The loss gives Luther an A-R-C Record of 13-9, 20-18 overall. Simpson improved to 5-17, 13-21.
These two teams will wrap up the three-game series tomorrow with a double header that will begin at 1:00 p.m.
