Lions jump on Orleans, 5-3

(Continued)

LOOGOOTEE —

While the offense scored enough runs to secure the Lions’ 14th win of the year, Bailey knows his lineup can, and needs, to be better as the sectional approaches.

“We didn’t execute bunting, we had first and second with nobody out in the third inning - we had a chance to open it up - they get a force out a third base, and we didn’t get anything out of that inning,” Bailey said. “That five runs could have easily been eight, nine or 10 and we were even thinking of shortening the game. It was a good win - Orleans came in ranked No. 7 in Class A. I’m sure we’ll see them again down the road.”

Prior to the season, Bailey said he wanted his team to be playing its best baseball in May and June, and despite some early season struggles - the Lions seem to be getting hot at the right time.

“Every night out, any mistakes we make now we want to learn from,” Bailey said. “When we’re finished with the regular season on Saturday we want to be playing our best baseball at the right time. We are awfully close ¬‹our last five games we have played pretty well. Our pitching has been there all season long, and top to bottom it seems like we are finally starting to hit together and our defense is playing really well. I like where we’re at.”
