NORTHFIELD, Minn. - Alex Lampert tossed a four-hit complete game in the opener and Brady Sand's sacrifice fly in the sixth broke a 3-3 tie in game two as St. Olaf swept Carleton 4-1 and 4-3 in a MIAC baseball doubleheader on Sunday afternoon.

Game One: St. Olaf 4, Carleton 1
Lampert struck out five, walked one and picked up a key 1-6-3 inning-ending double play in the fourth inning to pitch out of a jam. Lampert retired seven of the last eight hitters he faced to get his third (3-5) win of 2012.

Chris Paradise was 1-for-2 with a walk and a two-out, two-run single in the Oles' three-run second inning. Adam Johnson drove in the team's other run in the inning on a single to right field.

Game Two: St. Olaf 4, Carleton 3
Sand's RBI sacrifice fly came with one out and the bases loaded in the sixth.

St. Olaf reliever Kyle Watson tossed 3 1/3 innings of scoreless relief. Watson scattered five hits, struck out four and benefited from a failed bunt attempt that ended in a double play in Carleton's half of the fifth inning.

The Knights (12-17, 4-8 MIAC) had three-hit games from Ray Yong (3-for-4, R) and Jeff Dsida (3-for-3). Yong double with two outs in the sixth inning with Patrick Philley aboard, but Philley was thrown out at the plate to keep the game knotted at 3-3.
