EASTON, Pa. - After taking game one in walkoff fashion, the Lafayette baseball team dropped the nightcap of its doubleheader with an 11-7 loss to Penn. The Quakers took three of four from the Leopards over the weekend.

Penn (5-10) took advantage of a couple fortunate bounces en route to a six-run first inning off Lafayette starter Ari Kaufman.  The Quakers batted around in the inning with five earned against Kaufman, and never looked back.

Lafayette (6-10) added a run in its second trip to the plate on Andrew Landolfi's RBI lineout to center that scored Matt Lawrence. Lawrence reached on an error to start the inning before Zach Gross' infield single moved him to third.

Penn starting pitcher Jack Hartman kept the Lafayette offense in check throughout his 7.0 innings on the hill. The southpaw gave up two runs (one earned), including Hills' RBI knock in the fifth, on six hits to collect the win.  

Kaufman finished his afternoon by throwing four-plus innings and took the loss, giving up seven runs on 10 hits. Ryan Callanan twirled a pair of scoreless frames in the middle innings, before Alex Farina came out of the pen to pitch the seventh and eighth.

After plating one run in the seventh, the Quakers added to their lead with an unearned tally in the eighth inning, before scoring twice in the ninth against Rob Tatum. Facing an 11-2 hole in its final at-bat, Lafayette scored a run on Michael Coniglio's RBI single inside the right field line, another on an error, before Alex Woinski belted a bases-clearing double to the wall in left to pull the Leopards within four. Jeff McGarry, who pitched the ninth after playing the previous eight innings at first base, got the final out when Rob Caliento grounded to shortstop to end the game.

Lafayette and Penn play again on Tuesday afternoon in the Liberty Bell Classic in Philadelphia. First pitch from Meiklejohn Stadium is scheduled for 3:30 p.m.
