COLUMBIA, KY (Tue 28 Feb 2017) - The No. 6-ranked Lindsey Wilson baseball team defeated No. 24-ranked Freed-Hardeman (TN) 9-6 on Tuesday at Egnew Park.
The Blue Raiders (8-7) have now won seven consecutive games. Jan Carlos Ortiz drove in four runs while Tanner Moore went 2-for-4 and Jayden Jackson went 1-for-2, hitting a home run, driving in two runs and was walked three times.
Jackson got Lindsey Wilson on the board first in the bottom of the first inning with a two-run home run. Ortiz drove in the other run of the inning on single that scored Ben Giland. A Lawyer Braun single in the fourth inning increased the lead to 4-0.
The Lions (11-5) got on the board for the first time in the fifth inning. Joe Leatherwood led off the inning with an infield single. Griffin Siebert singled with one out to put runners on the corners. Chase Young grounded out driving in the run to cut the deficit to 4-1.
Ben Giland led off the fifth inning with a walk and then advanced to second on a wild throw on a pick off attempt. Antonio Dorado drove in Giland with an RBI single to give Lindsey Wilson a 5-1 lead.
The two teams combined to score nine runs in the sixth inning. Freed-Hardeman scored five in the top half of the inning to take a 6-5 lead. The Lions scored their first run of the inning on a ground out and then scored on a bases loaded hit by pitch. Young capped off the Freed-Hardeman scoring frenzy with a bases clearing double.
Lindsey Wilson responded with four runs in the bottom of the sixth on a bases loaded hit by pitch and an Ortiz bases clearing double to give the Blue Raiders a 9-5 lead.
