Baseball: LWC stumbles against Phoenix

By Kyle Jackson

Lebanon, TN - It was a tough day at the office for the Lindsey Wilson baseball team as they dropped their doubleheader against Cumberland (TN) this afternoon, falling to 19-3 in game one and 11-10 in game two.

Game One: LWC 3, CU 19
The Phoenix (25-16) scored in five of six innings to pick up its sixth straight win.

Lindsey Wilson managed just six hits in the game while the Blue Raider pitching surrendered 22 hits and issued six walks.

Five different Blue Raiders recorded a hit in the game, including Michael Sizemore, Gabe Board, and Lucas Bault -- who also ended the game with an RBI in the loss.

Cohen Achen suffered the loss on the mound, allowing six runs on 10 hits over two innings of work. He was one of four Blue Raider pitchers on the afternoon. Brandon Watts, Jake McDaniel, and Jalen Riley all saw action in the loss.

Cumberland jumped out to a 6-0 lead through three innings before adding six in the fourth. The Blue Raiders finally got on the board in the fifth after Thorne Gray hit a three-RBI home run, his second of the season.

It was all the offense the Blue Raiders got as the Phoenix added another seven runs in the final two innings to take game one.

Game Two: LWC 10, CU 11
The Blue Raiders produced seven runs in the final two innings to cut the Phoenix lead to within one, but the comeback attempt fell just short as the visitors ran out of innings.

Lindsey Wilson managed nine hits in the game while the Blue Raider pitching surrendered 13 hits and issued six walks in the loss.

Six different Blue Raiders recorded a hit in the game, including Jonathan Gallagher -- who also ended the game with three RBIs in the loss.

Bailey Turner got the start on the mound, allowing seven runs on five hits over 1-1/3 innings of work. He was one of four Blue Raider pitchers on the afternoon as Edwin Quedeza, Michael Frye, and Cade Duncan all came on in relief.

The Phoenix once again jumped out to a 7-0 lead through two innings. Lindsey Wilson cut into the deficit in the third after producing three runs from a two-RBI single from Jordan Blick and a Chance Stayton RBI double.

After five scoreless innings for the Blue Raiders, they found a lifeline in the eighth as Lindsey Wilson produced a series-high four runs starting with an RBI single from Board. Two runs were walked home as both Koby Wall and Nico Martinez were hit by pitches with the bases loaded before Cody Fallon made it home from Bault's ground out.

An RBI single from the Phoenix in the bottom of the eighth proved to be the winner after Gallagher's three RBI homer in the ninth could only put the Blue Raiders within one of the hosts as Stayton and Wall lined out with the final two outs.

Lindsey Wilson concludes the series with the Phoenix Saturday at 1 p.m. CT.
