Lohaus shines for Mount Mercy


MESA, Ariz. - Tanner Lohaus is making a quick transition from college basketball to college baseball.

Lohaus pitched all nine innings Saturday as Mount Mercy topped Benedictine-Mesa, 4-2, in the second game of their doubleheader in Arizona.

The Mustangs also won the first game against Benedictine, 7-4, to sweep the doubleheader.

Lohaus threw 127 pitches in the complete-game victory. Tito Berdecia had two hits for the Mustangs in the 4-2 victory. Kobi Candaroma and Corbin Day drove in two runs.

Berdecia went 2-for-5 with a home run and four RBIs in the 7-4 victory. Jake Faur had two hits. Parker Johnson drove in two runs. Chili Moseley, Berdecia and Chase Costa scored twice.

Nathan Barnes tossed shutout ball for 3 1/3 innings for the victory.
