Norse open season by dropping doubleheader at LWC
COLUMBIA, Ky. - Senior catcher Beau Grissims pinch-hit RBI double in the bottom of the seventh inning Sunday afternoon gave Lindsey Wilson College a 5-4 win over Northern Kentucky University and completed a doubleheader sweep by the Blue Raiders.
Lindsey Wilson also won the first game of the doubleheader, 10-1, as the Blue Raiders Josh Messer tossed a seven-hitter against NKU. Aaron Randall and Steve Dover both homered twice to lead the Lindsey Wilson offensive attack.
In the nightcap, NKUs Jason Martin tied the game at 4-4 in the top of the seventh inning with an RBI single. That set the stage for Grissim, whose two-out double scored the winning run.
