Statesmen drop non-conference doubleheader to Vincennes
| Not enough offense in game one and not enough pitching and defense in game two sent Lincoln Trail College's baseball team to a doubleheader sweep at the hands of Vincennes University Tuesday (April 11) by scores of 6-2 and 10-9 in eight innings.|
In game one, Lincoln Trail scored a run in the first to take an early lead, while Vincennes tied the game with a run in the fourth, then broke through for five runs in the sixth to take control. The Statesmen plated another run in the seventh, but it was not enough.
Layne Peavler led LTC at the plate with a triple and a run scored, while Raul Hernandez doubled and drove in a run, Keaton Sackett added a base hit, Tucker Greer knocked in a run and Jordan Brewer scored a run.
Jackson Niehaus suffered the loss in relief, allowing four runs on two hits and two walks in one-plus innings of work.
In game two, LTC fell behind 6-0 after the top of the first, but came back with two in the second. After Vincennes scored two in the top of the third, LTC put together a six-run rally in the bottom of the third to tie the game. Each team then scored a run in the sixth to make the score 9-9 and it went to extra innings. Vincennes pushed across a run in the top of the eighth and was able to hold on for the win.
Jose Ramos led the offense for LTC with a double, a single, two runs scored and a run batted in, while Joshua Crispin singled twice, scored two runs and knocked in a run. Hernandez doubled, singled and scored a run, Keith Ellison singled twice, drove in a run and scored a run, Peavler singled, drove in a run and scored a run, Brewer and Greer posted a base hit and a run batted in apiece, Alverio added a base hit and Sackett and Coby Taylor each scored a run.
Taylor Lepard took the loss in relief, allowing two runs on six hits with one strikeout in three and two-thirds innings.
