Lehman Lifts Eagles to First Win of Season

Behind a solid pitching outing from junior Cory Lehman and sophomore Nic Light, the Golden Eagles collected their first win of the 2018 campaign, defeating West Branch 63. Lehman and Light combined for 6 strikeouts.

Tyrone capitalized on 5 hits and 6 West Branch errors. West Branch opened the scoring in the top of the first inning, capitalizing on a few walks and weak hits to fall perfectly in their favor.

Tyrone came right back in the bottom of the first inning, tying the game at 1. West Branch put up 2 more runs in the top of the second off Lehman when a ball got in between Pearson in center and Lewis in left, resulting in two more runs for West Branch.

But once again, Tyrone wasted no time coming back and scoring two more runs in the bottom of the second inning, tying the game at 3. The score after two innings was 33 with Lehman still dominating on the mound.

Lehman calmed down on the mound in the top of the third inning and shut down the West Branch offense.

Tyrone’s bats however did not slow down in the third inning they continued to hit the ball. A hard hit ball that went through the second baseman’s legs allowed Lehman to score from second base, and moved Woomer to third.

Then another ground ball to the second baseman off the bat of Carter Maceno allowed Micah Woomer to score from third widening Tyrone’s lead.

After Lehman exited the game after the fourth inning, Nic Light came in and surrender no more runs while striking out 1 and only allowing 2 hits.

With the victory, Tyrone now holds a 14 record on the year.
