Baseball matches NAIA season-long winning streak with its 21st straight win
NEW ALBANY, Ind. -- Daniel Pulliam threw a two-hit complete-game shutout today to lift the Lindsey Wilson College baseball team to a 6-0 win over host Indiana University Southeast at Koetter Sports Baseball Complex.
Pulliam (7-1) needed just 95 pitches to maneuver his way through the Grenadier lineup to help the No. 13-ranked Blue Raiders match the NAIA's longest winning streak of the season at 21 games.
Tennessee Wesleyan University notched 21 straight wins earlier this season.
Pulliam struck out four batters while facing the minimum amount of hitters in an inning six times. He had strings of retiring 10 straight and 11 straight during the game.
While Pulliam was stellar on the mound, Jeff Kerian led the offense going 3-for-4 with four RBIs. Manny Alonso -- who extended his hitting streak to 20 games -- added two hits, two runs and a RBI in the win.
Tyler Bernard also added two hits as the Blue Raiders out-hit the IU Southeast 11-2 for the game.
Patrick Yochum (3-3) suffered the loss allowing two runs on five hits in 5-1/3 innings. Clay Hardesty allowed four runs on six hits over the final 3-2/3 innings.
Lindsey Wilson returns to action at 4 p.m. CT on Wednesday, April 18, as the Blue Raiders host Brescia (Ky.) University in the regular season home finale at Egnew Park.
