NAIA WORLD SERIES: No. 3 Embry-Riddle drops No. 6 York, 8-3

LEWISTON, Idaho — No. 3 Embry-Riddle (Fla.) snapped a four-game World Series losing streak with an 8-3 win over No. 6 York (Neb.) in game three of the 2013 Avista-NAIA Baseball World Series Friday at Harris Field.

With the victory, Embry-Riddle (49-13) advances to play the winner of No. 2 Lee (Tenn.) and No. 7 Lewis-Clark State (Idaho)/No. 10 Rogers State (Okla.) at 6:30 p.m. PDT on Monday. York falls into the elimination bracket and awaits the loser of Lewis-Clark State and Rogers State. That game will be played tomorrow at 12 p.m.

Embry-Riddle, who entered the World Series with the lowest team batting average (.268) amongst all the qualifiers, registered its fifth-straight 10-plus hit effort with 14 hits. Third baseman Jeff Lemon, the Eagles leader in hitting all season with a .349 batting average entering the contest, highlighted the squad with a 3-for-4 effort at the dish, including a pair of RBI. With the performance, Lemon moves into a tie for eighth place on the Eagles all-time hits list (172).

Joining Lemon with two RBI was right fielder Kevin Lindheim and second baseman Tyler Robbins. Robbins finished the game 2-for-5 with two runs scored in addition to his two RBI, which gives him 150 career hits as a member of Embry-Riddle.

Embry-Riddle starter Kevin Maloney scattered six hits over 7.2 innings to improve to 12-1 on the season. The left-hander allowed three runs (one earned), walked one and struck out four. Maloney’s only loss this season came against World Series host Lewis-Clark State (Idaho).

York took the lead to start the game when Trevor Ramos singled up the middle to score Matt Owen, who led off the Panther first inning by reaching first on a hit-by-pitch. Owen advanced to second on Brett Wise’s sacrifice bunt prior to scoring.

Both starting pitchers cruised over the next three innings, allowing a combined two hits and no runs.
