Baseball: LWC drops season opener against Crusaders
By Kyle Jackson
Hattiesburg, MS - The Lindsey Wilson baseball team opened the 2022 season on Friday afternoon with a 6-5 loss against (RV) William Carey (MS) in nine innings.
The Lindsey Wilson baseball team will return to Milton Wheeler Field in Hattiesburg on Saturday for a two-game series beginning at 11amCT.
The Blue Raiders (0-1) produced five hits from the plate while allowing six to the Crusaders in return, four of them coming in the final inning of play. Kyle Collin and Nico Martinez led LWC with two hits apiece.
Cohen Achen earned the start from the bump, going six innings of work where he corralled seven strikeouts and four walks while allowing four hits. Michael Frye and Edwin Quedeza also saw action from the mound in the season opener.
William Carey opened the scoring with an RBI single in the bottom half of the first inning to get things started.
Despite the quick deficit, Lindsey Wilson answered the call in the top half of the second inning with an RBI single of their own to score Koby Wall from third base. The Blue Raiders doubled the advantage in the top of the fifth after a double from Nico Martinez scored the run of Michael Sizemore for the 3-1 score.
Play continued as a stalemate until the bottom half of the eighth, where the Crusaders hit the first home run of the game to get within a run at 3-2.
The Blue Raiders grew their advantage in the top of the ninth as Thorne Gray scored a run after a wild pitch to make it 4-2. On the following play, Nico Martinez hit a single RBI to score Cody Fallon for the 5-2 advantage.
The Crusaders weren't ready to give up however as they managed to load the bases in the bottom of the inning scoring a walk and two runs off a double down the right-field line. The walk-off single to win the game came on the following play as the Blue Raiders lost a heartbreaker in the final inning on opening day.
