Hilltoppers win final game of three-game series

By Cameron Brown

WKU baseball concluded a three-game series against the University of Texas-San Antonio with a win. The Hilltoppers notched a 9-5 victory over the Roadrunners at Nick Denes Field on the afternoon of Saturday, March 31. WKU is yet to lose the third game of a Conference USA series this season.

The Hilltoppers trailed 5-4 before sophomore infielder Kevin Lambert launched a two-run homer in the bottom of the fourth that put WKU in front for good. It was the fifth overall career home run for Lambert, but it was the first time that he has gone yard at home.

Redshirt senior pitcher Ben Morrison earned the win on the mound for WKU, giving up just two hits and no walks in three shutout innings.

WKU will travel to former Ohio Valley Conference rival Murray State Tuesday afternoon. The Hilltoppers have won 19 out of the last 21 games in the series against the Racers.
