PORTSMOUTH, OHIO - The Lindsey Wilson bats came alive once again as the Blue Raiders pounded out 13 runs on 19 hits en route to the series finale victory over Shawnee State (Ohio) 13-1 on Saturday at Branch Rickey Park.

After barreling up 23 hits in the series opener but managing just six hits in the game two loss, the Lindsey Wilson offense got back to business on Sunday with 19 hits to bring the Blue Raider total to 48 for the three-game Mid-South Conference weekend series. Lindsey Wilson improves to 15-12 overall and 2-1 in conference play, while Shawnee State falls to 6-19 and 2-4 in league play.

Ben Giland posted four hits while Jayden Jackson had three as the duo combined for nine total RBIs on the day. Jackson has now reached base safely in all 23 games this season he has recorded an at-bat. Tanner Moore added a three-hit day while Connor Anderson, Antonio Dorado, Vincent Boils and Lawyer Braun each had two hits. Steven Paredes failed to record a hit, but scored a team-high four times in the win.

Aaron Pearcy (3-1) tossed a complete-game gem on the mound allowing one earned run on just four hits with five strikeouts. All four hits he allowed were singles and he did not surrender a base hit from the fifth inning on.

After a scoreless first and second, the two teams traded solo runs in the third. A Giland single scored Paredes for LWC's first run, while the Bears answered with an RBI single of their in the bottom half of the inning.

The Blue Raiders plated four runs in the top of the fourth to go up 5-1. With the bases loaded and one out, a fielder's choice scored the first run. Moore then doubled home Boils and Giland later roped a two-RBI single to center to score the final two runs.

After a quiet fifth and sixth, Lindsey Wilson tacked on eight runs over the final three innings to run away with the win. Anderson blasted a solo shot in the seventh to make it 6-1. In the eighth, Moore singled one run home and Jackson scored two more on a two-RBI single for the 9-1 lead. Giland recorded an RBI double before Jackson smacked a three-run shot, his fifth home run of the season, over the left-center wall to put the Blue Raiders safely ahead 13-1. Pearcy then closed things out in the ninth for the complete-game victory.
