The Kellogg Community College baseball team lost their first conference game of the season this week, splitting a double header with Muskegon Community College at home on Tuesday.

Right-handed sophomore Chad Mayle pitched the Bruins through more than five innings of their 6-1 victory in game one, with Travis Moore, another sophomore righty, pitching just under two innings in relief for a save. Both pitchers struck out three from the mound.

Leading at the plate in game one, freshman outfielder Tanner McCarn hit a single with an RBI and freshman pitcher Steve Remesnik hit a single.

Left-handed freshman Keith Phillips pitched just over four innings of game two’s 2-4 loss. At bat, sophomore catcher Drew Carlile hit a single with an RBI while sophomore first baseman/outfielder Kody Carson hit two singles in three at-bats.

The split with MCC ties the Bruins in second place with MCC in the conference, with both holding a record of 5-1. KCC will have a chance to improve that record this afternoon with a double header against conference foe Mott Community College beginning at 2 p.m. at home at Bailey Park in Battle Creek.
