The Tiffin University baseball team picked up where they left off on Sunday, maintaining their 4-0 lead for the remaining innings to take 3 of 4 games from Findlay. The win also moves the Dragons a step closer to their goal of 30 victories and a spot in the GLIAC Tournament.
The Oilers gift wrapped the Dragons first run for them, delivering a wild pitch to the plate to score Isaac Perry. In the 3rd inning, Tiffin added another run. This time Perry pushed the run to the plate with a bunt allowing Kyle Lento to scamper home to give the Dragons a 2-0 lead.
A double and a hit batsman put the Dragons back in business in the 4th. An infield single by Lento enabled Brayden Callihan to score to make it 3-0. One batter later, Findlay handed over another run committing one of their three errors in the game, allowing Jack Dennis to score.
With a four run cushion, Luke Fraley blew away the competition, allowing only five hits and a walk over eight innings of work. Luke had the strikeout pitch working, racking up seven. In the 9th inning, Kevin Borst was summoned from the bullpen to dispose of the Oilers. He allowed one hit in the frame, but slammed the door shut to secure Tiffin's 26th win of the season.
Fraley moves to 6-4 on the season, tying a Tiffin University division II single season record for victories in a season. At the plate, Isaac Perry led the charge with three hits, a run batted in, and a run scored. Kyle Lento collected two hits and drove in a run.
Perry also set a few records, these coming in the field. Isaac is 10th all-time at the NCAA Division II level in career assists, the GLIAC's all-time leader in the stat, and Tiffin's leader regardless of divisions.
The Dragons now sit 26-19 overall and 18-10 in GLIAC play, tied with Walsh for 3rd place.
