LWC Baseball drops series opener against Martin Methodist

By Kyrin Mayfield

Pulaski, TN - The Lindsey Wilson baseball team dropped the opening game in its three-game series against Martin Methodist (TN) on Friday at Bobby Walker Field.

The Blue Raiders (13-16, 8-8 Mid-South Conference) raced out to a 3-0 lead through the top of the second inning. Derek Zavala's leadoff double in the first, followed by Austin Rayno's single, put Lindsey Wilson in a good position to score first, which it did when Tyler Maskill's sacrifice fly brought Zavala home.

Two more runs were tacked on an inning later after three straight two-out walks loaded the bases for Rayno to hit a two-RBI single.

It took the RedHawks (6-12, 4-10 MSC) a pair of innings to erase the deficit and hold a slim 4-3 advantage. Two errors by the Blue Raiders gave Martin Methodist its first run of the contest.

In the third, a pair of singles and a walk loaded the bases, this time for the RedHawks. Hayden Wright recorded a base knock and Jake Chaney received four balls at the plate to each score a runner to tie the game at 3-3. That tie was broken one batter later, as Bryce Palmer's sacrifice fly put Martin Methodist ahead.

Lindsey Wilson evened the score in the fourth with Henry Paulino's solo shot, his team-high eighth home run of the year.

However, Martin Methodist pulled away from that point on. The RedHawks plated four in the bottom of the fifth largely thanks to a three-run home run from Tyler Robb. Martin Methodist flew another ball over the fence with Lace Pope's two-run bomb in the seventh to go up 10-4.

The Blue Raiders were able to score in the eighth frame after Seth Price began the inning with a double and came home on a single by Kobe Wall, but the RedHawks held on to win 10-5 and take game one.

Brady Cappe (4-3) received the loss for Lindsey Wilson after allowing six earned runs over five innings pitched with one strikeout.

Wall had a solid day in the batter's box by going 2-for-4 with an RBI. Rayno also recorded two hits and an RBI over five at-bats while Paulino notched a pair of runs for the Blue Raiders.

Lindsey Wilson and Martin Methodist cap off the series on Saturday at Bobby Walker Field with a doubleheader beginning at noon CT.
