Baseball: LWC run rules Midway at Egnew Park
By Christopher Coombs
The Lindsey Wilson baseball team picked up a 12-2 run-rule victory in seven innings against Midway (KY) on Tuesday afternoon at Egnew Park.
The Blue Raiders outhit the Eagles 10-8 on the afternoon as Lindsey Wilson made use of two home runs for six runs in the second inning to pick up the win.
Gabe Board was a perfect 4-for-4 at the plate with a double, three singles, and two RBIs. Chance Stayton was 3-for-4 with a home run, a double and a single while Nico Martinez finished with five RBIs and a grand slam.
The Blue Raiders broke the game wide open in the second inning, exploding for seven runs. Lindsey Wilson made use of the deep ball in the inning as both Chance Stayton and Nico Martinez produced home runs. Stayton pushed home the first two runs of the game with his home run before a Gabe Board bunt single scored Kyle Collin.
Martinez closed out the inning with a base clearing four RBI grand slam to push the LWC lead to seven runs.
Stayton later racked on another run after opening the third inning with a leadoff double. He then stole third base before going home on an error by the Midway catcher on his throw down to third base.
The Eagles got on the scoreboard in the fourth inning, pushing one run home but the Blue Raiders matched the effort in the bottom half of the inning. Michael Sizemore led off the inning with a single up the middle before a Board RBI double to centerfield pushed the LWC advantage back to eight runs.
Lindsey Wilson tacked on three more runs in the sixth inning. Board singled for his fourth hit of the afternoon as Gunner Bush and Sizemore reached on walks to load the bases. Martinez picked up his fifth RBI of the afternoon with a sac fly that scored Sizemore from third.
Jayden Cockerel then walked to load the bases for the second time as Stayton picked up his fourth RBI of the afternoon with a single to right that scored Board and Bush. Midway pushed home their second run of the afternoon in the top of the seventh inning but it wasn't enough to force more innings.
William Monheimer picked up his first win of the season pitching 3-2/3 innings as Nick Backstrom came on in relief, pitching 3-1/3 innings. The pair both allowed four hits and just one run across their work as Backstrom added four strikeouts.
Lindsey Wilson returns to Egnew Park tomorrow when they take on Mid-South Conference member Cumberlands (Ky.) for a single contest starting at 3 p.m. CT.
