PORTSMOUTH, Ohio - The Lindsey Wilson baseball team began Mid-South Conference play with a doubleheader split at Shawnee State (Ohio) on Saturday at Branch Rickey Field.

The Blue Raiders (14-12, 1-1 MSC) pounded out 15 runs on 23 hits in the 15-4 series-opening victory, but were shut out and limited to just six hits in the 5-0 nightcap loss to the Bears (6-18, 2-3 MSC).

GAME 1 - Lindsey Wilson 15, Shawnee State 4

Lindsey Wilson scored in six of the nine innings in the game one victory over Shawnee State.

The Blue Raiders dropped a three spot right out of the gate scoring one on a Ben Giland RBI bunt single and two more on a triple by Jan Carlos Ortiz. LWC extended that lead to 4-0 in the top of the third, but the Bears cut that advantage in half in the bottom half of the inning to make it 4-2.

Lindsey Wilson responded with two runs in the fourth, one via Antonio Dorado's solo home run and one on a sacrifice fly Tanner Moore. Another sac fly in the top of the fifth made it 7-2, but Shawnee State came back with a pair of runs in the bottom of the sixth to make it 7-4.

After a scoreless seventh, the Blue Raider blew things open with a five-run eighth to make it 12-4. Lindsey Wilson pounded out six hits in the scoring frenzy, including a trio of extra-base hits. LWC tacked on three more runs for good measure in the ninth en route to the 15-4 win.

Ortiz had four hits and four RBIs, while Steven Paredes, Moore, Giland and Jayden Jackson each had three hits, Jackson adding three RBIs.

James Doubet (3-1) picked up the win allowing eight hits and four earned runs with eight strikeouts. Louis Corral pitched the final 3-1/3 innings allowing just one hit.

GAME 2 - Lindsey Wilson 0, Shawnee State 5

The Blue Raider offense sputtered in game two, recording just six hits in the scheduled seven-inning affair.

The game was scoreless through the first four innings before Shawnee State took a 1-0 lead in the bottom of the fifth. Shawnee State then recorded four of their six hits in the bottom of the sixth to go up 5-0. Lindsey Wilson was unable to generate any momentum in the top of the seventh as the Blue Raiders suffered their first conference loss of the season.

LWC had an excellent scoring opportunity in the top of the second with runners on second and third and one out, but a strikeout and pop out ended the chance. The Blue Raiders had a runner reach third two more times in the game, but failed to score both times.

Moore and Ortiz both totaled two hits in the loss.

Starter Ricky Winfield (3-5) took the loss allowing one run on two hits in five innings.
