Warriors score a dozen in one inning to end game early
LEWISTON, Idaho – A 12-run sixth inning put the game out of reach, as the top-ranked Lewis-Clark State College baseball team handed Oregon Tech an 18-0 defeat Saturday night at Harris Field. The game was stopped in the seventh inning by the mercy rule.
The win improves the No. 1 ranked LCSC Warriors to 41-3 overall, while the loss drops the Hustlin’ Owls to 25-26.
Lewis-Clark State plated five runs in the fourth inning, but nothing compared to what the Warriors did in the sixth.
With seven hits, three hit batsmen, two walks, two errors, and two left on base the Warriors fell just one batter short of hitting through the lineup twice in the sixth frame. LCSC had four doubles in the inning.
Oregon Tech could only manage six hits, and none for extra bases. Matt Belando fell to 6-8 on the year with the loss.
Both teams will continue the four-game series with a doubleheader starting at noon on Sunday, and then a single game starting at 7 p.m. on Monday. The first game on Sunday is schedule for nine innings, while the second is scheduled for seven.
