By Matthew Wurzburger
COLUMBIA, KY (Thu 20 Apr 2017) - The Lindsey Wilson baseball team dropped both games of a Mid-South Conference doubleheader to Pikeville (KY) on Thursday, 14-2 and 5-4.
The Blue Raiders drop to 26-22 and 10-7 in MSC play. Pikeville's record improves to 22-20 and 5-12 in conference action.
Pikeville out-hit the Blue Raiders 29-13 and tallied nine extra-base hits, including four home runs. Lindsey Wilson blasted two homers - one in each game.
Connor Anderson paced Lindsey Wilson with four hits on Thursday and drove in three runs.
Josh Bailey and Anthony Roberts went a combined 11-for-16 at the plate against the Blue Raiders, drove in nine runners and scored 10 runs.
Game 1 - Pikeville 14, Lindsey Wilson 2
James Doubet lasted just 1-2/3 innings in game one's 14-2 loss. The senior right hander surrendered seven runs on five hits and struggled with his command - walking a career-high four batters.
Doubet breezed through the first two batters in the top of the first before struggling to secure the final out. Back-to-back walks set up a run-scoring single by Jorge Perez. The next batter walked to load the bases for Matt Peterson, who laced a two-run single into right field.
Lindsey Wilson appeared to be poised to score in the bottom of the first inning, only to see the inning end in a play at the plate. Jayden Jackson reached on a two-out error, and Ben Heideman replaced him as a courtesy runner. Ben Giland then singled to put runners on first and second. Jan Carlos Ortiz followed Giland with another single, but Heideman was gunned out at the plate to end the frame.
Once again, Doubet struggled to find the final out in the top of the second. After retiring the first two batters, the Williamsfield, Illinois native then allowed the next four batters to reach. Bailey hit his first home run of the game - a two-run shot - for the first runs of the inning.
Doubet's afternoon ended midway through the second inning as he was replaced by RJ Hanson. Hanson allowed a two-run double to the first batter he faced to close the book on Doubet.
Lindsey Wilson pushed across its first run of the game in the bottom of the second inning on an Anderson solo shot.
Hanson allowed one run in both the third and fourth inning before blanking Pikeville in the fifth and sixth innings. The La Honda, California native gave up two more runs in the seventh on run-scoring singles to Justin Beatty and Bailey.
Hanson struck out the first batter in the top of the eighth inning before being replaced by Ethan Escue. The junior hurler was charged with four runs - three earned - on eight hits over 5-2/3 innings. Hanson struck out two while issuing no walks.
Anderson accounted for the Blue Raiders' other run with a two-out single to left field to score Ortiz. Ortiz singled earlier in the frame to snap a streak of 14-consecutive batters retired by Pikeville starter Aaron Hedgecock.
Hedgecock worked seven innings in a winning effort, allowing two runs - one earned - on five hits and striking out seven.
The Bears tacked on three more runs in the top of the ninth inning before Lindsey Wilson went down in order in the bottom of the ninth.
Pikeville's 14 runs in game one matched an opponent season high. Georgia Gwinnett also scored 14 runs on Feb. 18.
Game 2 - Pikeville 5, Lindsey 4
Pikeville scored two runs in the top of the fifth inning to overcome a 2-1 deficit in game two.
Lindsey Wilson led for the first time in the series after pushing across a run in the bottom of the first inning. Ray Gonzalez led off the inning with a walk before eventually scoring on an Anderson single.
The Bears tied things up after scoring once in the next half inning. Jay Vincent doubled to center field to start the inning before scoring on Alec Barba's one-out double.
After a scoreless third inning, Lindsey Wilson went ahead again on Matt Mersinger's solo home run - his first-career round tripper as a Blue Raider.
Pikeville produced the game-tying and go-ahead runs off Ricky Winfield in the fifth inning. Perez singled home Shane Williams and Bailey.
Winfield pitched 5-2/3 innings while allowing three runs on eight hits and one walk in the losing effort.
Roberts hit a two-run home run with no outs in the top of the seventh inning to increase the Pikeville lead to 5-2.
Lindsey Wilson threatened in the home half of the seventh - scoring two runs and leaving the potential tying run at second base.
Gonzalez and Giland reached on a hit by pitch and walk, respectively, to set up a two-run-scoring double by Jackson - Heideman then replaced Jackson on second base. With no outs and the tying run on second base, the next three batters went down quietly to end the game.
