COLUMBIA, KY (Thu 28 Apr 2017) - Lindsey Wilson baseball plays host to Pikeville (KY) this Friday and Saturday, April 28 & 29, 2017, at Egnew Park, 928 Russell Road, Columbia, KY. as part of the Mid-South Conference Tournament Opening Round. The best-of-three series begins at 5pmCT on Friday. The series continues on Saturday with game two at 1pmCT. If necessary, a decisive third game will begin 45 minutes after the conclusion of game two.
Lindsey Wilson (26-23, 10-8 MSC) finished third in the conference regular season standings after being swept by Pikeville (23-20, 6-12 MSC) at home last weekend. The Bears out-scored the Blue Raiders 29-11 across the three games.
Pikeville took game one 14-2 after scoring runs in each of the first four innings. Blue Raider starter James Doubet lasted only 1-2/3 innings on the mound - yielding seven runs on five hits and four walks.
Josh Bailey and Anthony Roberts collected a pair of home runs each on Friday. Roberts had the Blue Raiders' number all series long, finishing the three games batting .727 with four home runs and six runs batted in.
The Blue Raiders stranded the potential game-tying run on second base in Friday's second game, losing 5-4. Lindsey Wilson pushed across two runs in the seventh and final inning in that game on Jayden Jackson's two-run double. Ben Heideman, who replaced Jackson, stood on second base with no outs, but the next three Lindsey Wilson batters went down in order to end the game.
A four-run top of the fifth inning proved decisive in Pikeville's 10-5 victory in Saturday's finale. Jay Vincent smacked a grand slam in that inning for Pikeville's seventh home run of the series.
Jackson went a perfect 3-for-3 on Saturday and ended the series batting 4-for-9. Matt Mersinger collected two hits in the finale and had four hits over the three games - including his first-career home run.
Pikeville enters the rematch batting .284 with 22 home runs and 273 runs scored. Bailey's .385 batting average leads the team. Roberts, the MSC's reigning Player of the Week, now has 10 home runs and a team-leading .638 slugging percentage.
On the mound, the Bears tote a 5.23 earned run average and a .295 opponent batting average. Aaron Hedgecock and Dalton Dahley share the team lead in victories with five apiece.
