Game 5 TWC 11 IN Tech 5

KINGSPORT, Tenn. - Top-seeded Tennessee Wesleyan steadily built a comfortable lead and coasted to an 11-5 victory over No. 3 seed Indiana Tech Friday to advance to the championship game of the NAIA Baseball National Championship Opening Round - Kingsport Bracket.

Tennessee Wesleyan (47-11 overall) is the lone undefeated team remaining and awaits to see who it will face to play for the right to advance to the 2012 AVISTA-NAIA World Series. The championship game is set for 2:30 p.m. Saturday.

Indiana Tech (40-21 overall) will play the winner of the Campbellsville (Ky.)/St. Francis (Ill.) contest Saturday at 11 a.m. in the losers' bracket finale.

The Bulldogs scored at least one run during the first five innings in building an 11-1 cushion. Tennessee Wesleyan delivered the big blow in the fifth as it pushed six runs across in the frame.

Indiana Tech scratched out a run in the bottom of the fifth to make it a nine-run game before making things interesting with a three-run eighth to pull within 11-5. But that was as close as the Warriors could get as the Bulldogs held on for the six-run decision.

Anthony Boix finished 2-for-3 with two RBIs and three runs scored for Tennessee Wesleyan, while Stephen Branca went 3-for-4 with two RBIs and two runs scored. Taylor Oldham and Jordan Guida also had two RBIs apiece.

Josh Culler collected the win to improve to 9-2 on the season.

For Indiana Tech, Brandon Paletta set the tone with a 3-for-5, one-RBI performance. Tyler Snoke took the loss to drop to 8-2.
