Vincennes University baseball finishes 1-2 against Motlow State in first road series

TULLAHOMA, Tenn. - The Vincennes University baseball team opened its 2020 spring season at Motlow State with a doubleheader on Feb. 15. The Trailblazers split the first day’s series 1-1, winning the first game 14-2, and losing the second 10-0.

Sophomore RHP Nate Toone pitched a complete game to pick up his first win of the season. Offensively, the Blazers scored in every inning of the first game.

In the third game of the series on Feb. 16, the Blazers fell 13-12 in a back-and-forth battle. Sophomore Ryan Robison was a standout performer, striking out 3 batters, as well as only allowing one hit. He also brought in the most important four runs of the game in the top of the seventh. Down 0-2 in the count, Robinson let loose and hit a grand slam, putting the Blazers back in the lead at 12-10. Unfortunately, Motlow State scored three runs in the eighth, and VU was unable to respond.
