Baseball: LWC fends off Oakland City late for 10-7 victory

By Kyle Jackson

Lindsey Wilson baseball relied on a Chance Stayton two RBI home run in the bottom of the seventh inning to fend off the Mighty Oaks of Oakland City (IN) and earn a 10-7 home victory Tuesday evening. Lindsey Wilson improves to 14-6 on the season with the win.

Jordan Blick dominated the bases today after leading the team with three runs while Jadon Cockerel was efficient at the plate, leading his side in hits with three. Henry Paulino was the sole factor in the scoring as he led the team in RBIs with three in the game.

The Blue Raiders worked through four pitchers today with Michael Frye getting the start from the mound as he threw for four innings throwing five strikeouts while allowing five hits, four walks, and four runs. Bailey Turner, Brandon Watts, and Cade Duncan all got at least an inning in on the mound today with Duncan subbing in during the final inning to earn his second straight save of the season.

Oakland City opened the scoring after taking advantage of a wild pitch. Lindsey Wilson responded in the bottom of the inning however as Paulino was struck by a pitch with the bases loaded allowing Blick to come home.

The Blue Raiders opened a gap in the bottom of the third after an RBI single from Paulino, a two-RBI home run from Jonathan Gallagher, his first of the season, and an RBI single from Austin Rayno made it 5-1.

The Mighty Oaks answered right back in the top of the fourth as they took advantage of a throwing error by Gabe Board and an RBI double making it 5-4.

Lindsey Wilson didn't find home plate again until the sixth inning as another RBI single from Paulino scored Blick and pinch hitter Gunner Bush was hit by a pitch with the bases loaded allowing Nico Martinez to cross home plate for the 7-4 lead.

Oakland City refused to go away as they produced three more runs in the top of the seventh to tie the game at 7-7. Stayton took matters into his own hands and delivered his first home run of the season, a two-RBI shot over the right field fence to re-establish the lead at 9-7.

Cody Fallon tacked on an extra run in the bottom of the eighth, scoring off a wild pitch to put the game to bed.

Lindsey Wilson will return to conference action this weekend as they travel to Shawnee State (Ohio) for a three-game series starting on Thursday. First pitch is set for 3pmCT.
