first_imgWill Warren (3-7) was credited with the win after giving up just two runs on two hits with five punchouts in seven innings of work. Jared Biddy (12) picked up his 12th save, bouncing back from three-straight singles with three straight outs to close out the contest. Warren, who surrendered just one hit in the first 4.1 innings, allowed the Lumberjacks to get one back in the fifth on a Jordan Monacy RBI single up the middle. Jarrod Huber followed with a sac fly to right field, and Jake Georgiades slid in just under the tag to make it 4-2. SLU doubled its lead in the bottom of the fourth on a two-run shot to left center off the bat of Bryce Steckler, just the second home run of the entire tournament.BSB: 2-run homer for Steckler, pushing @LionUpbaseball’s lead to 4-0 over @SFA_Baseball.

Both starters faced the minimum until SLU loaded the bases with one out in the home-half of the second on a Nathan Pilutti single and a pair of free passes. The Lions got on the board first as Pilutti scored on a throwing error by third baseman Manny Vasquez, followed by a Conner Manola sac fly to drive in Brennan Breaud. After Matt Riser went to his closer, Biddy, SFA loaded the bags with three-straight base knocks. An infield pop up and a fielders choice that plated a run went down as the first two outs, and a liner to center field secured the Lion win. Austin Roth came on in relief for SFA in the sixth, striking out the three-straight in his first frame and retiring the side in order in the seventh.
