Baseball Drops Two to Madonna

4/04/09 – On Saturday, Indiana Tech Baseball team suffered two hard losses to the Madonna Crusaders, 3-2 and 3-1.  In the first game, the Warriors rallied in the top of the sixth to tie the game but the Crusaders hit a sac fly to push across the winning run despite the outstanding effort of senior pitcher John Paul Akers (Naples, FL / Owens CC) who struck out a season high ten in a losing effort.  Senior Will Richards (Toronto, ONT. / Muscatine CC) and junior Lance Hanmer (Greenville, IN / Parkland CC) continue to swing the bat well hitting their 10th and 8th doubles of the season respectively.  In the second game, junior Israel Martinez (Cicero, IL / Bellevue Univ.) survived a tough start to pitch well the rest of the way and held the Crusaders to seven hits and three runs while striking out four.  Hanmer went 2-2 with a RBI and hitting his ninth double of the season.  The Warriors will play Madonna at Warrior Field on Wednesday, April 8th as part of a rescheduled doubleheader from April 5th.
