FULTON, MO -- Although a stout wind was blowing out for much of the game, the only home run of the contest came in a dead calm as the William Woods University baseball team collected a 13-3 win over Trinity International University in seven innings on Wednesday night. Derek Fletcher hit a two-out, two-run shot in the bottom of the sixth for the Owls, part of a perfect 3-for-3 outing for the sophomore.

The Owls got off to a bit of a shaky start in the contest, as the Trojans were able to push across a pair of runs in the first. Seth Lezon was the first tally for Trinity International, scoring after a leadoff walk, with Alex Winfield also scoring in the inning.

It took the Owls until the bottom of the second to light up the scoreboard, but they pushed across five runs in a wild inning to take the lead for good. Derek McCawley singled to left center to open the inning, advancing to second on a wild pitch and then to third on a grounder from Parker Watkins. Fletcher singled, then Damon Adrian stole second as a courtesy runner for Fletcher. Both McCawley and Adrian scored on a wild pitch from Jimmy Fracek to tie the game at 2-2. The Owls would add three more runs in the inning, including another run off a Fracek wild pitch, to take a 5-2 lead.

William Woods was able to score another pair of runs in the bottom of the fifth before the Trojans pulled one back in the top of the sixth.

The Owls put the game out of reach in the bottom of the sixth, putting two runs across courtesy of errant throws - a wild pitch and an error charged to the Trinity International catcher on a base-stealing attempt - and adding another two courtesy of the long bomb from Fletcher.

Adrian came on in relief in the top of the seventh, retiring the Trojans in order to give WWU a chance to end the contest early in the bottom of the frame. The Owls would do just that, with Ryan Sweet plating Tyler Galloway with a pinch-hit triple before scampering home on the eighth wild pitch of the game for Trinity.

The Owls move to 11-5 on the year, with Zach Secoy picking up his first win of the year in relief. He pitched 1.0 scoreless innings, striking out one and not allowing a hit. Fracek took the loss for Trinity International, who falls to 1-3 on the year.

William Woods hits the road for a four-game set against former AMC foe McKendree University. First pitch is set for noon on Friday.
