Lions drop series finale to Tennessee Tech

HAMMOND, La. – The Southeastern Louisiana University baseball team fell, 18-4, Sunday to Tennessee Tech as the Golden Eagles averted a sweep in the weekend series at Pat Kenelly Diamond at Alumni Field.

An eleven-run first inning was all the offense Tennessee Tech (11-3) would need, although it would tack on multiple runs in the fourth, sixth and ninth against Southeastern (7-9) relievers.

SLU broke up the no-hit bid by Golden Eagle starting pitcher Connor Adams in the fifth on a single to left field by Christian Garcia.

The Lions broke up the shutout an inning later.

Reliever Jackson Berry walked the first batter he faced, Rhett Rosevear, to open up the inning. Bryce Grizzaffi hit a fly ball to center field that was misplayed for an error, putting a pair of runners in scoring position. Rosevear scored one batter later on Evan Keller’s RBI groundout.

Southeastern added three runs in the eighth.

Rosevear once again drew a leadoff walk. He advanced to third on Keller’s one-out double to right-center field. Rosevear scored one batter later on Preston Faulkner’s sacrifice fly to right. Keller scored on Connor Manola’s first home run of the season, a two-run blast to left-center field.

Adams (1-0) earned the win, tossing five shutout innings. He allowed one hit and two walks, striking out two. Hayden Robb (0-1), the first of seven Lions pitchers in the game, suffered the loss. He allowed eight runs – four earned – in 0.1 innings pitched.

Relievers Dalton Aspholm (1.2 innings) and Andrew Landry (one inning) turned in scoreless outings for Southeastern.

Garcia picked up a pair of hits in the game, finishing the day 2-for-3 at the plate.
