For Immediate Release
Berea, Ky. – Senior pitcher Josh Miller led the Indiana Tech baseball team to its third straight win throwing seven shutout innings in a 6-1 victory over Berea College on Sunday.
Miller, coming off an outstanding outing against No. 1 Tennessee Wesleyan, allowed just three hits over seven frames with six strikeouts and no walks.
The Warriors scored the first run of the game in the top of the second inning. After a leadoff single by Eric Wald, Adam Crall promptly doubled down the left field line to bring around the game’s first run.
That’s the way the score would stay until the fifth inning when Tech pushed across a pair of unearned runs to take a 3-0 lead.
That would be all the run support the Warrior pitching staff would need as Miller and Cam Wilson made the lead hold up.
Tech padded its lead with a run in the seventh and two more in the eighth. Berea would score its only run of the game in the bottom of the ninth, but Wilson would close the door on the Mountaineers giving the Warriors the 6-1 win.
The Warriors pounded out 10 hits on the day, including four doubles. Wald, Bryan Brudi, and Ben Christian picked up two hits apiece.
Indiana Tech (3-4) will head to Union City, Tennessee on Friday, Mar. 1 for a contest with William Woods University beginning at 1:30 p.m. followed by a game against Mid-Continent University at 6 p.m. at Elam Stadium at L.H. Ladd Field.
