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.
