Lee Basketball Wins Double-Header

Saturday, February 2, 2013
On a cold and blustery Saturday afternoon, the No. 3 ranked Lee University baseball team started the 2013 on a hot note with a doubleheader sweep of the University of Northwestern Ohio (0-2). The Flames (2-0) followed a 12-1 win in the opener with an 11-1 margin in the nightcap.

“Overall, I thought it was an excellent start to our season,” said Lee head coach Mark Brew. “I thought our pitching staff and defense did an excellent job all day in tough conditions.”

Danny Canela led the Lee offense with a 5-for-8 day at the plate.
The North Carolina State University transfer ripped a team-leading two doubles and six RBI.

Josh Silver, Corey Davis, Derrick Pitts and Brady Renner each tallied three hits. Silver legged out a double and scored four times. Renner added a double and four runs scored.

Lee plated seven runs in their first at bat of the season and cruised to the 12-1 game one win.

Myles Smith earned the win with four innings of one-hit work. The transfer from Miami Dade College walked two and struck out six.

Jeremy Stawychny allowed just one hit, while walking one and fanning one in three innings of relief.

The Lee offense took a little longer to get going in game two with two runs in the first and one in the second. A three-run fourth inning and five runs in the fifth supplied enough of a cushion for the Lee pitching staff.

Clint Terry threw five scoreless innings with two walks and three strikeouts to claim the win. CJ Lusted was tabbed for an unearned run in one inning of work, while Alex Moore gave up one hit and struck out two in one inning on the mound.

“Offensively I think our running game was really good today,” said Brew. “We had a lot of guys who put together quality at bats and we did a great job hitting with two outs.”

Lee collected 27 hits in the two games and held UNOH to seven safeties. On the base paths, Flames runners succeeded on 12-of-13 stolen base attempts. Pitts recorded three steals in three tries. Davis Mark Silva and Chris Avey were safe on each of their two attempts and Renner was 1-for-1.

“We need to come out with the same focus tomorrow,” added Brew. “Hopefully, the weather will cooperate more tomorrow.”
Sunday’s nine-inning single game is scheduled for a 2 p.m. start.
