LWC Baseball prepares for home series against Campbellsville

By Brady Budke

The Battle of Highway 55 finds its way to Egnew Park this weekend, as the Lindsey Wilson baseball team will battle Campbellsville University in a three-game Mid-South Conference series. Saturday will feature a doubleheader, with play beginning at 1pmCT. Sunday will be just one game beginning at NoonCT.

Live video and live stats will be available for this weekend series. Please view the LWC Attendance Policy for more information.



The Blue Raiders have not beaten the Tigers since April 1, 2017, losing seven straight times in that span of play.

The Tigers (5-6, 4-4 MSC) have played just 11 games so far this season due to a handful of cancellations and postponements. The team last played back on March 14, losing on the road to Indiana Tech by a final of 9-6.

On offense, Colton Titus and Tommy Sepulveda lead CU with 10 total hits, respectively. Noah Amenta holds a team-high 10 RBIs from the plate. Campbellsville is averaging five runs on 7.5 hits per game so far.

Defensively, the Tigers are allowing just 2.7 earned runs per game. Aaron Hutchinson comes in as the top pitching threat, having thrown a team-best 20 complete innings while striking out 20 batters.

The Blue Raiders (8-11, 5-4 MSC) were held scoreless in the last outing, falling to then-No. 8 Cumberlands (Ky.) on Tuesday by a final of 10-0 in seven innings.

Offensively, LWC currently leads the MSC in hits per game (9.5) and is second in runs scored per game (7.2). Despite this, the team managed just three hits in the last contest against Cumberlands. Derek Zavala rolls with a team-high in hits (27), RBIs (16), and stolen bases (13) this season.

Defense has been a struggle for Lindsey Wilson, who sits at the bottom of the MSC in hits allowed per game (10), total runs allowed (151), and earned runs allowed (130). Brady Cappe has been a bright spot from the bump, throwing a team-leading 33 1/3 innings while striking out 37, the fourth most in the MSC.
