HENDERSON, Tenn. - The Freed-Hardeman Lion baseball team got back on track Tuesday, as they completed a sweep of College of the Ozarks with a 4-2 win in the opening game followed by a 6-1 victory in the nightcap.

T.J. Webb picked up the win in the opening game after working five innings and allowing eight hits and two earned runs. Jacob Sawyers was awarded the save after finishing the final two innings and allowing just two hits to secure the win for the Lions.

Darcy Moore led the Lions (16-12) at the plate in the opening game, as he went 1-for-3 on the day with a three-run homerun to account for three of FHU's four RBI in the game. Aden Campbell also got in on the yard work with a solo homerun of his own to contribute one RBI in the match-up.

It did not take long for the Lions to get on the board, as Griffin Siebert got the bottom of the first inning started with a single to centerfield followed by a walk by Aden Campbell to put two runners on. Darcy Moore would take care of the base runners from there in the next at bat, as he connected on a homerun over the right field wall to put FHU up 3-0.

The Bobcats (15-12) were able to push one run across in the top of the first inning and another in the third, but it would not be enough, as the Lions struck again in the bottom of the sixth inning with a solo homerun by Aden Campbell to give the FHU the 4-2 win.

The Lions kept things rolling in the nightcap, as three runs in the fourth inning and three more in the sixth inning would secure the comfortable 6-1 victory.

Landon Sewell picked up the win after working six solid innings and allowing just four hits and one walk while striking out two. Beau Caviness secured the save for the Lions after closing things out in the seventh to complete the sweep. 

With the sweep, the Lions move to 16-12 on the season while College of the Ozarks falls to 15-12 on the season with the loss.
