COLUMBIA, KY - A dominate pitching performance from James Doubet helped the Lindsey Wilson baseball team to a 1-0 shutout victory over Taylor (IN) on Friday evening at Egnew Park.
The senior tossed eight-shutout innings allowing just three hits while striking out nine batters without issuing a walk. The eight innings are the most in a single appearance for Doubet.
Lindsey Wilson (9-7) has now won eight-consecutive games after taking the opener of the three-game series over the Trojans (7-8).
After a leadoff hit by pitch, Doubet retired 10-consecutive batters before finally giving up his first hit of the game. Following a leadoff single in the fifth, Doubet retired nine more in a row before a leadoff single in the eighth, his final hit allowed. The Trojans reached second base three times in the game and made it to third just once.
Steve Collela entered in the top of the ninth and after his lone baserunner reached on a one-out error, he retired the next two batters to secure the 1-0 win and pick up his third save of the season.
The Trojans got a solid performance from their pitching staff as Jordan Crabb started the game with four-shutout innings. Lindsey Wilson finally broke the deadlock in the bottom of the fifth.
Antonio Dorado legged out an infield single and moved to second on a sacrifice bunt. Ray Gonzalez then laced a single up the middle to score Dorado for the 1-0 lead.
Crabb exited the game after six innings, allowing the one earned run on four hits. Logan Rodgers pitched the final two innings for the Trojans, surrendering just a single hit.
The Blue Raiders had one more quality scoring chance in the sixth but were unable to convert. Doubet and Collela then finished out the job as Lindsey Wilson secured just the second shutout-victory this season.
