WILLIAMSBURG, Ky. (WPTA21) – 23rd ranked Indiana Tech downed Lyon College 8-3, in the opening game of the Williamsburg Bracket on Monday afternoon in the 2019 NAIA Opening Round.
Lyon jumped out to a 3-0 lead over the Warriors in the top of the first, but Tech had their own two-out rally in the fourth as Spencer McGhee and Javier Castaneda reached with two outs and came around to score on back-to-back singles from Jake Ritson and Jashaun Simon to cut the deficit to 3-2.
McGhee would tie the game up in the next inning with a two-out single while an errant throw from the Scots’ second baseman allowed Branson Dossen to come home as well and put the Orange and Black up 4-3. Ritson broke the game up in the seventh with a two-out double to clear the bases while Landon Bloir kept Lyon’s hitters off-balance after coming on in relief in the second inning, allowing just three hits in 7.1 innings of work to pick up the win.
Ritson finished the game with four RBI after going 3-4 at the dish while Reese Olden went 3-4 with two runs.
Tech (39-14-1) will play host Cumberlands on Tuesday.
