NASHVILLE, Tenn. – The Lipscomb baseball team wrapped up the weekend with a full head of steam, taking both ends of a twinbill, 9-3 and 9-3, against Mississippi Valley State Sunday afternoon in the Music City.

The pair of nonconference wins finished off a three-game sweep of the Delta Devils at Ken Dugan Field at Stephen L. Marsh Stadium.

“We did what we were supposed to do this weekend, get three wins,” Lipscomb skipper Jeff Forehand said. “At times I didn’t like the way our bullpen pitched, but we hung in there and got the wins.”

With the wins Lipscomb improved to 25-19 on the season while MVSU fell to 7-34.

 

GAME 1: LIPSCOMB 9, MISSISSIPPI VALLEY STATE 3

The Bisons put up runs in five consecutive innings and Brady Puckett tossed a gem on the mound to down the Delta Devils in game one.

Puckett was firing on all cylinders in the opening contest. The junior righty only pitched five innings, but he did not allow a run and only faced three batters above the minimum. The Murfreesboro native improved to 7-4 on the year while only giving up one hit and striking out six.

Leading 2-0 in the fourth frame, the Bisons used five hits to score four runs and blow the game open. Lee Solomon and Cade Sorrells each had RBI doubles to go along with a RBI single from Jeffrey Crisan in the stanza.

Sorrells and Von Watson led a parade of eight Bisons who collected base knocks in the win. Sorrells finished a perfect 3-for-3 with two RBI, a walk, a run and his 11th stolen base of the season. Watson went 3-for-4 with one RBI and two runs scored.

Jeffrey Crisan continued his hot hitting with a 2-for-4 effort, raising his season average to .324. The junior catcher drove in two runs and registered his sixth double of the year.

Alex Dorso and Adam Stewart combined to throw three perfect innings, combining for six punch outs. Dorso entered in the sixth and struck out the side.  

The Delta Devils scored all three of their runs in the seventh inning off Ryan Stevens. The hurler allowed one hit and two walks.
