Huge 7th inning key to LWC Baseball win over Pikeville

By Brady Budke

Pikeville, KY - The Lindsey Wilson baseball team poured in seven runs in the seventh inning of action today in Pikeville to help drop off the Bears in the series opener of a Mid-South Conference battle by a final of 12-5.

The seven run outburst by the Blue Raiders helped propel the team forward, as Lindsey Wilson held just a 5-3 advantage moving into the seventh.

LWC started the scoring in the game, corralling two runs in the first inning. Nico Martinez produced an RBI double to score one, and eventually crossed the plate on a wild throw in the inning. UPIKE answered the call with two runs of its own in the bottom half of the inning.

Pikeville grabbed a one run lead in the second inning and held strong until the fifth, where Lindsey Wilson stepped back on top after producing three runs of its own. Ty Menrath started the scoring off in the inning after he brought home Austin Rayno on an RBI double. Menrath eventually scored on the next at-bat with a Seth Price RBI single. Two batters later, Lucas Bault pushed Price home on an RBI single of his own.

Leading 5-3, the Blue Raiders opened the floodgates with seven runs in the seventh inning. Koby Wall and Henry Paulino each earned back-to-back walks with the bases loaded to kick off the scoring. Rayno was hit by a pitch in the next plate appearance, scoring another. Derek Zavala dropped in an RBI double deep down the left field line scoring three, and Price brought Zavala home on an RBI single.

After the disastrous top half of the seventh, Pikeville successfully garnered a pair of runs to finish the game but could not chip away at the deficit.

Menrath led the way from the plate with three hits, while Zavala and Price added two each. Zavala notched a team-high three RBIs on his bases-clearing double in the seventh.

From the bump, Brady Cappe recorded the win, going seven complete innings of work while striking out six batters and allowing five hits and three walks. Jake McDaniel finished the game off to help LWC secure the win.

The series between Lindsey Wilson and Pikeville continues tomorrow with a doubleheader beginning at 11 a.m. CT.
