Logan Workman tossed seven shutout innings in Friday's win over AUM.
The Lee bats came alive on Friday morning in the opening round of the Gulf South Conference Baseball Championship being played at the Choccolocco Park. The Flames pounded out 13 hits in the 8-3 victory over Auburn Montgomery.

"It was a great start to our tournament. We got solid pitching performance from (Logan) Workman, solid defense, and clutch hitting throughout the line-up. (Colton) Yeager had a big day at the plate," praised Lee coach Mark Brew.

Lee will return to second-round play on Saturday morning at 11 a.m.
when they face the winner of the Valdosta State and Delta State contest. "It will be another tough opponent tomorrow whether it's Valdosta or Delta State. We will need another quality start from Seth Konkel and our offense to continue to step up," Brew added. 

While the Flames were pounding out 13 hits, Logan Workman pitched seven innings of four-hit ball and proved his record to 7-1 on the year. The hard throwing right hander struck out four and walked two. 

Every Lee player, except for one, had at least one hit. Colton Yeager led the way with three hits, including a double and home run. Ryan Beamish blasted his 19th home run of the year and picked up his 62nd and 63rd RBI. Dylan Standifer and Landon Silver also had two hits.

The Flames jumped on top in the bottom of the 2nd inning when Beamish doubled and scored on a single by Standifer. Yeager stroked a two-bagger and later scored on a sack fly by Brandon Daniels.  

The margin reached 4-0 in the 5th inning. Thomas Zazzaro had a one base hit and Beamish ripped a shot over the center field wall that plated Zazzaro. The Flames went back to work in the seventh as Beamish walked, and Standifer singled. Yeager came up with a three-run jack to increase the lead to 7-0. 
 
Auburn Montgomery rallied back with their only three runs in the top of the eighth. Lee put the contest out of reach in the bottom of the inning when Riley Black reached on an error and scored on Alan Smith's two-base hit.

Alan Rickman came on in relief of Workman in the 8th inning and Alan Carter pitched in the ninth and recorded a pair of strikeouts. Hunter Viets was the starting and losing Warhawk pitcher in over 5.1 innings, he allowed four runs all total AUM used seven hurlers. 

Jackson Cemen had 3 hits in the loss, while Casey Henderson drove in two runs with a triple. Quinterrious Arrington and Zach Feaster doubled.
