NASHVILLE, Tenn. - The Lipscomb baseball team set a new school record in walks and starting pitcher Brady Puckett went the distance as the Bisons rolled to a 13-2 victory over Kennesaw State on Saturday at Ken Dugan Field at Stephen L. Marsh Stadium.

The win improves Lipscomb to 21-19 overall and 7-7 in ASUN Conference action, and gives the Bisons a chance to take the series from Kennesaw State on Sunday. 

Puckett surrendered a pair of doubles and a run in the first inning, but soon settled in and worked through the Kennesaw State lineup with efficiency. The Murfreesboro, Tennessee native needed just 100 pitches for the complete-game effort and surrendered two runs while striking out four.

Saturday’s victory marked Puckett’s eighth-career complete game, surpassing the previous record of seven set by former Lipscomb and current Nashville Sounds pitcher Josh Smith.

Offensively, the Bisons pounded out 13 base hits and drew 14 free passes, topping the previous school record of 13 set in 2011.

Senior second baseman Hunter Hanks went 3-for-6 with 6 RBI, while Michael Gigliotti, Cade Sorrells, and Jeffrey Crisan each finished with a pair of base knocks.

Lipscomb got on the board in the bottom of the second when Sorrells drew a bases-loaded walk. In the third, Hanks gave the Bisons a 3-2 lead with a 2-run homer that nearly nicked the foul pole in left field.

The Bisons blew the game open by scoring seven runs to take a commanding 10-2 lead in the bottom of the fifth. Lipscomb played station-to-station baseball for much of the inning before Hanks lined a 3-RBI double down the chalk at third into the left field corner.

In the sixth, Hanks drove in another run with an RBI single after Crisan scored on an error and Gigliotti crossed the plate on a wild pitch.

Kennesaw State was led by first baseman Austin Upshaw, who went 3-for-4 with an RBI double.
