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

(Continued)

LEWISTON, Idaho — Embry-Riddle took its first lead of the game with a three-run top of the third. Adam Cellini set the table for the Eagles with a leadoff single to center. Pinch runner Connor Williams advanced to second on a sacrifice bunt before a Robbins double brought him home. An error by the York shortstop allowed another run and Lindheim drove in the third on a two out single to left.

York cut the deficit to 3-2 in the seventh on a Jordan Pella single, however Embry-Riddle responded with five runs in the top of the eighth to push its advantage out to 8-2. With the bases loaded and no outs, Robbins drove in a run with a single followed by a sacrifice fly by Kyle Chastain that scored Williams. Back-to-back singles by the Eagles accounted for another two runs before another sacrifice fly brought home the fifth.

In the bottom half of the inning, York took advantage of a fielding error on the Embry-Riddle third baseman and loaded the bases. However, a double play ended the threat, despite scoring a run.

Aaron Conyers (9-3) received the loss for the Panthers. Prior to the game, Conyers had not surrendered an earned run in six-straight appearances (34 innings).

    It looked like it came easily to Courtney Paris. The minute she stepped foot on the campus at the University of Oklahoma in 2005, it seemed she was already an All-American and destroying the competition in the Big 12 and across the nation.
