INDIANS DEFEAT TRI IN CONFERENCE MATCH UP
Union City rallied in the bottom of the 6th to take the lead, and held on in the 7th to defeat Tri. "I'm proud of the way our defense looked tonight," said Indians Coach, Bill Bradbury. "Our guys didn't commit any errors tonight, and that keeps you in the game, and gives you an opportunity to strike late."
The Indians offense was led by senior shortstop, Zach Bradbury. Bradbury had 3 hits on the night, scored 1 run, and had 1 run batted in. Bradbury also was lighting it up on the base paths, stealing 5 bases on the night. Gabe Loesch, (Sr), Trevor Spence, (Sr), Jacob Fulk, (Sr), Cam Luster, (Jr), and Jacob Curry, (Jr), all added a hit for UC. Loesch and Fulk each added 2 RBI's, while Spence added 3 stolen bases.
Loesch started on the hill for the Indians. Loesch looked strong on the mound, but was pulled in the 2nd inning due to some tightness in his elbow. Luster relieved Loesch and kept the Indians in the game on the hill. Nic Wells, (So), picked up the win for the Indians, going 2 strong innings, giving up only 1 hit. Spence came on in the 7th to shut the door on the Titans, and picked up a save.
The Indians are now 1 - 0 in the conference, and travel to Winchester on Friday in another conference contest.
