Aviators Split Doubleheader With Rex

Sunday, July 08, 2018

The Lafayette Aviators split their doubleheader with the Terre Haute Rex, losing their first game but winning their second.

 

The first game was a rough outing for Lafayette, with a final score of 12-2, giving up multiple runs in each of the first three innings. The score ballooned to 8-0 after the 3rd inning, and while Lafayette would respond with their first run in the 4th inning, it wouldn’t be the spark that they needed to match Terre Haute’s production.

 

Kam Smith hit a triple and scored, and Brady Huebbe contributed two hits in the losing effort.

Game two started a lot quieter on the scoring front. The Rex again got the first run on the board in the 1st inning, but did not follow up with another run until the 4th when they scored twice.

 

Lafayette would also post two runs in the 4th, thanks to a two-RBI Milo Beam double. Then in the fifth inning, the Aviators really made their mark with back-to-back home runs from Smith and Bryce Ball, putting them up 6-3. The momentum stayed with the home team as they followed it up with a two-RBI single from Jack Thelen.

 

Donovan Clark would also cross home plate in the 6th inning.

 

Terre Haute would not be able to generate enough offense to come back in this one, giving Lafayette the [SCORE] victory on the back end of the doubleheader.
