2014 All-conference baseball

Two Lion baseball players were recently named to the All Eastern Indiana Athletic Conference baseball team. Senior Mitchell Wagoner closed out his career by tossing a team-leading 64 1/3 innings with 63 strike outs. He posted 3.92 ERA while winning three games, saving three games, and pitching four complete games. He also hit .310 with eight stolen bases and 21 runs scored. Junior Brad Busald was also named to the team. In 45 2/3 innings, he struck out 87 hitters and had a 3.07 ERA while winning three games. At the plate, Busald led the team with a .365 batting average, seven doubles, two triples, and 24 runs batted in. He also stole 14 bases in 16 attempts.

The Lions pitching staff led the conference in strike outs. While doing so, the squad struck out the most hitters in a season (214) since 1981 and tied a school record early in the season with 18 strike outs in a game as a staff.

Moore scores 25 to lead Lynx past Fever

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The Minnesota Lynx had just one offensive rebound on, and it couldn’t have come at a better time.

Maya Moore scored 11 of her 25 points in the fourth quarter and had a huge put-back down the stretch to lead the Lynx to an 83-77 victory over the Indiana Fever on Sunday.

Midway through the fourth quarter the Lynx still didn’t have an offensive rebound, while the Fever had 11 — which helped them stay in the game despite shooting just 37 percent from the floor. Clinging to a one-point lead with 4 minutes to play, the Lynx finally got the bounce they needed.

Seimone Augustus misfired on a jump shot, but the rebound caromed straight off the back rim to Moore, who was crashing the lane. She tipped it in to put Minnesota ahead 71-68, and the Lynx held on to complete a second-half comeback.
