“Our offense did a really good job today,” said Lee head coach Mark Brew. “We had lots of hard-hit balls early in the game and the extra-base hit helped us break it open early.”

Derrick Pitts and Jordan Stewart led the way with two hits each.
Pitts tripled in three runs and scored once, while Stewart doubled, scored once and drove in one run.
Cameron Brewster and Zacary Hawkins each legged out doubles. Brewster scored twice and Hawkins recorded two RBI in the game.

Tallying singles for the Flames were Andres Nelo, Cameron Scott, Siosi Poti, Zack Zyburt and Nathan Wierzgac. Nelo, Poti and David Logan each recorded one RBI.

Tiffin (1-14) tallied five hits. Nick Raifsnyder and Kirk Olesick each ripped a double. Elijah Sanabria drove in the Dragon’s run with a single.

Jeremy Stawychny started and picked up the win after scattering three hits over seven innings of work. Stawychny (4-2) walked two and struck out seven batters.

Aaron Ashby pitched two innings in relief. He gave up one run on two hits and fanned three.

Mike Cooperider was charged with the loss. Cooperider (0-1) gave up nine runs (four earned), eight hits and walked one in 3 2/3 innings pitched.

“Tiffin has a good team and we will have to be ready tomorrow,” said Brew. ”Seven inning games have been a struggle for us and we need to make sure were ready to go from the first pitch.”

The Flames and Dragons will complete the three-game non-conference series with a pair of seven-inning games Saturday with first pitch scheduled for noon.
