Luther split a double header today with Carthage College. The Norse won game one 5-1 and were defeated 18-1 in game two.
Colin Coffey went the distance on the mound for the Norse in game one. Coffey allowed one run of four hits, walked three and struck out 10 en route to his first win of the season.
In game two, eight Luther errors led to 14 unearned runs, as Carthage secured the split. The Red Men open this game up with a 10-run third inning.
Luther's lone run was produced by Jake Vogt who hit a lead-off solo home run in the bottom of the third.
The split gives Luther an overall record of 7-4. Up next, the Norse will face the Beavers of Buena Vista University this Friday and Saturday. These games will be the Iowa Conference opener for both clubs. Friday's (1x9) game is scheduled to begin at 2:30 p.m. Saturday's double header (2x9) will begin at 10:00 a.m. (MST).
