LWC Baseball drops season opener to Asbury Tuesday afternoon
By Brady Budke
The Lindsey Wilson baseball team dropped its 2021 season opener on Tuesday afternoon at Egnew Park, falling to Asbury (KY) by a final of 13-5 in 10 innings.
The Blue Raiders produced 11 hits from the plate while allowing 13 to the Eagles in return. Austin Rayno and Tyler Maskill led LWC with three hits apiece.
Brandon Wilson earned the start from the bump, going 6.0 innings of work where he corralled three strikeouts and two walks while allowing three hits. Jake McDaniel, Cade Duncan, Andy Rosales and Ryan Marples all saw action from the mound in the season opener.
Asbury opened the scoring with a sacrifice fly in the top half of the third inning. The Eagles notched another run in the inning off an RBI double, quickly moving ahead 2-0.
Despite the quick deficit, Lindsey Wilson answered the call in the bottom half of the inning with Ty Menrath completing a successful RBI groundout to score Derek Zavala from third base. In spite of a Maskill triple the next at-bat with two outs, LWC left him stranded to remain down in the contest 2-1.
Play continued on as a stalemate until the bottom half of the sixth, where Lindsey Wilson collected the equalizer and eventually the lead.
Lucas Bault led off the sixth with a single, which was followed up in the next at-bat by Gabe Board garnering a single of his own to advance the pinch runner Cody Fallon to third base. Fallon went on to score in a close stolen base at the plate to tie the game up at 2-2. Kelvin Llanos broke the tie with a double to deep left field to score Board.
Not to be denied, Asbury came back with the answering run in the top half of the eighth on an RBI single, making things a 3-3 standstill.
In the bottom half of the eighth, Rayno smacked an RBI triple to deep right-center field that scored Brandon Adams from first base to give LWC the lead back at 4-3. Rayno score on the very next plate appearance by a Derek Zavala RBI single, giving LWC a newly acquired 5-3 lead.
With the window of opportunity closing in the ninth, Asbury received the gift it desired to remain in the game. With a runner on first and one out, Walker Paris launched a two-run homerun over the right field fence to tie the game back up at 5-5.
The Eagles opened the floodgates in the 10th, scoring eight runs to secure the eventual 13-5 win.
The Lindsey Wilson baseball team will return to Egnew Park on Wednesday, Feb. 17, to battle Brescia (KY) beginning at 4pmCT.
