Freshman outfielder Tyler Haubner (Cincinnati, OH/La Salle) collected five hits and drove in five runs on Wednesday afternoon, helping the Mount to a 12-7 win over Capital University at Prasco Park in Mason, OH/ The Lions, winners of two straight, go to 6-8-1 overall, return to action on Mar. 29 when they play a doubleheader at conference-rival Anderson University. The Mount is 1-2 in HCAC play.
Training by a 2-0 score entering their half of the second inning, the Mount rallied to play six runs in the frame, thanks to a two-run single by Haubner. Haubner also recorded a two-run single in the third inning for the Lions, helping to stake his team to a 10-2 lead after three innings. Capital cut into the deficit, 10-3 in the fourth and 10-5 in the fifth inning, before the Lions added to their lead. The Mount saw Haubner score a run in that inning, on a balk, and then saw their first-year outfielder record his fifth RBI of the game, on an RBI groundout in the eighth, to close the scoring.
Nick Browning (Fairfield, OH/Hamilton Badin) added two hits, to complement Haubner's three hits. Lions' teammate Jack Meininger (Cincinnati, OH/Cincinnati Country Day) also had three hits. Nathan Lambert (Lawrenceburg, IN/Lawrenceburg) picked up the win in relief, tossing four, scoreless innings, allowing four hits and posting two strikeouts. Capital stranded 12 runners on base against five Mount pitchers. Each team had 10 hits.
