Bruins' bats hitting on all cylinders

LIZTON — It only took two pitches and Tri-West junior Austin Lynn had the Bruins on the board.

Lynn’s home run on Tri-West’s first at-bat set the stage for an offensive explosion of nine runs in the first inning as the Bruins beat rival Danville 15-4 in five innings in the first round of the Hendricks County Tournament.

“It was fabulous, we couldn’t have asked for a better way for a junior to get it started, especially against Danville,” Tri-West coach Ryan Oppy said. “It set the tone for our whole team right from the start.”

Tri-West scored its runs in single inning bursts. It was nine in the first inning and six in the fourth inning.

“We just got our pitch and hit it hard. We were patient in the strike count,” Oppy said. “It kind of surprised me but I’m expecting these guys to hit. I knew we were going to have a good offense.”

After Lynn’s home run, two runners were walked and then three singles were hit in a row. Senior Dustin Burks got on base, senior Tyler Carter brought in senior Matt Pope, junior Dallas Wolfe scored senior Levi Baumer and then Grant Spratt was walked to score Burks. It was 4-0 before the Warriors got an out.

Sophomore Quentin Garland brought in Carter to bat through the lineup. Lynn then scored Wolfe and Garland off a single, Pope hit a double to bring in Lynn and Baumer singled to bring in Pope before a strikeout from the second Danville pitcher, Austin Allen, ended the inning.

“Give them credit, they came out swinging their bats,” Danville coach Brady Armstrong said. “Our pitchers got behind the count and could not get the off speed over and had to put the fastball in there. Just did not have command of the off speed or the fastball.”
